This cut is loaded with natural flavor and needs minimal seasoning. It comes beautifully marbled and is a great option from our Iberian pork selection.

Cooking Method: Best grilled or seared over high heat. This "secret" cut is marbled and should be cooked quickly to medium-rare to keep it tender.

Recommended Temperature: 145°F (63°C) for a perfect balance of tenderness and safety.

Iberian Pork

Iberian pork, a gem of gastronomic delight, hails from the verdant oak forests of the Iberian Peninsula. This exquisite variety of pork comes from the black Iberian pig, a breed that has roamed these lands for centuries, thriving on a natural diet rich in acorns. This unique feeding practice endows the meat with a remarkable nutty flavor and a level of marbling that sets it apart, creating a tender, melt-in-your-mouth texture that is both luxurious and deeply satisfying. The meticulous rearing and feeding of these pigs, in harmony with their genetic predisposition, results in pork that is not just exceptionally flavorful but also healthier, with a higher content of beneficial unsaturated fats. Iberian pork stands out in the culinary world for its versatility and depth of flavor, offering an unparalleled eating experience that transcends the conventional. It is celebrated by culinary experts and enthusiasts alike for its buttery texture and rich, nuanced taste profile, making it a sought-after ingredient for those looking to craft dishes of the highest caliber.

Antibiotic and Hormone-Free Pork

All of these pigs are raised free of any hormones or antibiotics. This practice ensures that the meat is as natural as possible, reducing consumer exposure to these substances. The absence of antibiotics in the raising of these animals helps prevent the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, a significant benefit for public health. Additionally, hormone-free meat often has better taste and quality. By choosing antibiotic and hormone-free meat, consumers support more natural animal husbandry practices and contribute to a healthier environment, while also enjoying safer and more flavorful meat.
