Presa Iberico de Bellota

0.00

Features: A very marbled portion of the collar without the pockets of kernel fat, this piece is overflowing in nuances and rich flavor. An epic cut to cook sous vides and finish on the flame. 

Breed: Iberico de bellota

Origin: La Alberica, Salamanca, Spain

Flavor Profile: The Ibérico pig has the exclusive ability to store large fat deposits, which infiltrate the muscle mass liberally marbling the meat in appearance and giving it an incomparable tenderness and texture. This genetic trait paired with the unique rearing and feeding of the pig on an entirely natural diet purely of its surroundings in the Dehesa is the secret to its fine flavor.

Spec: The Pluma, Presa, and Secreto are decidedly Spanish cuts originally derived from Iberico pigs. This is because the Spanish break down the whole hogs, “hot,” or before the deep chill. This allows the butchers to pull these smaller muscles from the deep layers of pure white iberico fat more easily than in standard pork production. 

Season: Harvested in Spring, available year-round

Purchasing Options: Sold by the pound, flash frozen
