Having cut the "guanciale" into cubes put it to fry in a pan with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, be very careful not to burn, it should cook slowly to allow the fat to melt. When the "guanciale"  is well browned remove the cubes, drain well and keep them warm.

Although today is linked to the culinary traditions of Rome, pasta Amatriciana could see its origins in Abruzzo.
