Pig’s heads, or “chiragaa,” (literally “pig’s face” in the Okinawan dialect) is a local traditional delicacy. Yes, a pork head! Believe it or not, this is very popular in Okinawa and used for plenty of dishes. Okinawans swear on the health benefits of pork head meat. Search the internet and you will find many interesting articles.


Mostly used for soups, skewers made from cheek meat etc. see below for a simple recipe.

1. Place the whole head in a large pot and cover with cold water. 
2. Add the aromatic vegetables, crushed garlic cloves, salt, pepper and bay leaves.
Slowly boil then reduce and let simmer until the meat is fork tender This can take up to 3 hours or more. 


The thawing time depends on many factors such as size, weight, packaging, and type of meat. Please refer to our thawing chart ≫here≪

Review of this item

Great value for raw dog food

Zed 8/2/2018
I feed my medium-large dog raw food, but my local supermarket doesn't always carry pork fat. He was looking a bit thin, so I got him this head as a treat to help fatten him up a bit. He loves chomping on this thing! What great value! Remove the ears and dehydrate them to make home made treats!

Great value if you have the time.
Brawn. An old English dish.
Fromage de Tete in French.
Or Headcheese in American lingo, which doesn't sound as sexy as the French version!

Nine hours in total. It would be less if the Meatguy could saw the head in half on some industrial saw as my hacksaw wasn't up to the job and had to do in reverse. That is, remove the mask from the skull and cook in separate pans.
Turned out very successfully though.
