Iberico Pork Shoulder Secreto Acorn-Fed Bellota ~400g / Épaule de Porc – Frozen
Origin: SPAIN – FERMIN
In the forests of southwestern Spain, known as the dehesa, a descendent of the wild boar, the Ibérico pig, still wanders free. Popularly known as Pata Negra or Black Hoof, the Ibérico feasts on a diet of acorns and other indigenous plants. This rich, natural diet gives the traditional dry-cured Ibérico hams and sausages an unsurpassed taste and quality recognized around the world.
This piece is “hidden” between the shoulder, ribs and fatback, for this reason we call to this part: “secret”. The cut to get this piece must be very accurate in order to keep the exact amount of fat. This highly grained piece stands out for its wonderful flavor and texture.
