Dice your bird’s eye chili and your 3 garlic cloves into thin pieces. Dice your shallot.

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Once your oven is ready, place your pork jowls into a braising pan and add water until the pork is halfway submerged.

Add your soy sauce, fish sauce, rice wine, sugar, garlic, chili, 1 stick of cinnamon, and salt and pepper to the water. Bring the pan to the boil on the stove and reduce it to a simmer.

Add a tight lid or foil to cover your pan and then transfer into the oven to cook for 2 hours.

De-fat the mixture by skimming off the liquid fat. Alternatively, you could refrigerate it and wait for the fat to solidify on the top.
