The best pork

Translated from Japanese: I received various things, but I’m reviewing this one first because it defrosted the fastest.
I was surprised that it was carefully packed. Needless to say, it was delicious. The flavor was amazing. I always want to eat such delicious pork. I would be grateful if you could provide it in smaller pieces.

Translated from Japanese: It was light but flavorful and very delicious. Also, after eating, my body turned warm without any stomach ache. Great pork. I will order again! (I was surprised that each piece was wrapped in a film)

Translated from Japanese: It's amazing that they are packed one by one! For the first time, I came across such politely packed meat. You can use it for shabu-shabu with confidence even if it’s frozen. Of course I will buy it again!!!

Translated from Japanese: I put the meat in a shabu-shabu pot with little water. When I ate it with four people, the water didn't catch up and I'm impressed that I could eat as many slices I wanted without a bad smell filling the room. 6 packs, eating them during the consecutive holidays ^ ^

Completely grazing pork is healthy and good!

Translated from Japanese: I ate it as shabu-shabu. It was delicious, so I'd like to give it 100 points, but the paper that separates each slice of meat stuck and tore the meat, and it was difficult to peel off, so I'll give it 98 points.

For Your Celebration

Dorobuta Free-Range Pork Shoulder Slices for Shabu Shabu (300g)

Horizon Farms
PK304
Buy More, Save More

These slices are made for the Japanese dish called Shabu-Shabu. Shabu-shabu is a Japanese hotpot dish of thinly sliced meat and vegetables boiled in water and served with dipping sauces. 

300g of extremely thin (1mm / 3/64″) slices of pork from the shoulder roast. One of the most flavorful cuts of pork. Abundantly marbled and rich in flavor - hands down - this quality of meat is something you won't even find at a top-end Shabu Shabu restaurant in Japan. Not only is this the best of the best, but pork from the El Paso Ranch is also all-year free-roaming, free of antibiotics and growth-promoting hormones. This greatly improves the texture and the aroma of the pork meat. A difference you will see, smell and taste. So much that we strongly advise tasting the pork without sauces first to appreciate the quality. 

To make it easy on you every slice is separated by a sheet as seen in the image. Usually, one person consumes 150g to 200g. For a family of 3, two packs are sufficient. We are also offering slices from the ribeye of pork. Give them both a try and decide who wins. The slices featured in the video below are both the ribeye and the shoulder slices.

100% real free-range and naturally raised pork from Hokkaido, Japan, probably the only place in Japan that has space for free-roaming animals. Happy as a pig in mud. Bathing in the nearby river during summer and playing around on the snowfields in winter - that's the happy life of the pigs on the family-owned El Paso Ranch in Hokkaido that are raised completely free-range in the Tokachi area. And when we say free range we mean the real deal free-range. Spring, summer, autumn and winter - 24 hours, all year free-roaming on 30 hectares (75 acres) of land. Read more about the farm below.

Free-range pork, in this case, pastured pork tastes different because it is different! The pigs are able to exercise freely and build natural muscles without the aid of growth promoters. They get to wander and forage with the herd and interact and do not suffer the same stress as intensively farmed pigs. Give it a try and taste the difference! Raising pigs free-range on open pastures is an extremely cost-intensive operation that makes free-range pork more expensive compared to conventional pork products.

They receive all the respect, love and care. See for yourself, all images and videos are real.

Pork Shabu Shabu Recipe Instructions

Dorobuta Shabu Shabu Shoulder Slices

We recommend defrosting the packs shortly before serving. Defrosting the thin slices over a long period of time, for example, more than 24h will make the pork fat too soft to handle. 

Dorobuta Shabu Shabu Shoulder Slices

Each slice is separated by a sheet. This way you can easily separate the thin slices.

Dorobuta Pork Shabu Shabu Slices Ribeye

There are two ways to do this. The informal way: you serve the pack as is on the table and each person takes a sheet and separates the pork slices themselves. 

Dorobuta Ribeye Shabu Shabu Pork

Or the more formal way: you separate all slices ahead and place them on a plate for your guests to take.

Dorobuta Shabu Shabu Pork Ribeye Slices

For a real Shabu Shabu experience, you will need a hot pot and a portable gas burner or hot plate for indoor use - a very common appliance in Japan. Once the water has reached boiling point reduce it to a simmer for cooking. Then add the vegetables. For high-quality meat, the broth for Shabu Shabu should be water and just a kombu seaweed. The meat and vegetables are dipped in sauce before eating. 

Dorobuta Shabu Shabu Ribeye Slices

Next, cook the pork, swishing the pieces lightly through the broth or submerging them briefly. Cook only one slice at a time, rather than trying to cook everything at once. 

Dorobuta Pork Shabu Shabu Pork Ribeye

Shabu Shabu should be enjoyed slowly like fondue, with the ingredients cooked over the course of the meal. Take the slice out of the broth once cooked - no worries if you eat slightly undercooked pork. 

Dorobuta Pork Shabu Shabu Ribeye Slices

Submerge the slice in your own small bowl of favorite sauce. The most popular sauces are Ponzu (a citrus-based sauce commonly used in Japanese cuisine) and sesame sauce. Enjoy five-star quality Shabu Shabu at home with the whole family.

I have a feeling that this will become a standard for celebrations!

Translated from Japanese: Even though the taste is strong, the fat is really delicious!!!
When eating this store’s chicken breast, I realized there’s a difference to usual chicken and because a family member’s birthday is near, I’ve decided to order this whole chicken.
I cooked it the same as always, but the meat quality is completely different!
The whole family is a total fan of this taste and aroma. Thank you (^^)

I made Samgyetang with it

Translated from Japanese: Although I have bought several types of chicken here already, it’s my first time trying this whole chicken.
To prepare it carefully, I washed it, but even so, there was no fat or blood on the chicken.
It was the same with the other chicken products I already tried, but there was also not the characteristic (strong) smell of chicken.

Because it’s hard to know the chicken’s life from the packs that you can find in the supermarket, I could finally feel with this product that the chicken’s life was spent preciously. I’m thankful I’m able to enjoy this chicken meat and won’t waste a bite, as one shouldn’t forget this animal once had a precious life, too.
Although I boiled it for 1½ hours, the meat didn’t get dry, the fat sticking to the meat had no unpleasant smell and I got a soup with a golden color.

I order all the meat I need from this store, I’ve come to not like any other ones.
Although I eat a lot less meat now, I have not become a vegetarian or vegan yet, so I think I want to not forget to at least be thankful for the meal this chicken gave me.

I’m sorry for this long comment.
I will order again.

I tried a whole chicken for the first time.

Translated from Japanese: Preciously raised chickens packaged carefully (for delivery) arrived in the best condition possible.
I grilled it with natural salt and thyme from my garden. It was really delicious, a complete success. Even cooled down packed inside a bento, there is no unpleasant smell.

Thank you HORIZON FARMS!! (。◕ˇДˇ◕。)/

Translated from Japanese: With this product, I made roast chicken for the first time.
I marinated it for 1 hour with salt and pepper and rosemary. After filling the chicken with garlic, I baked it thoroughly in the oven.
My daughter was so happy! “This is incredibly delicious!!!” She said.
I know that if you defrost this store’s chicken, you have to process it cleanly.
Inside a vacuum pack, the quality also remains the same.
It was really delicious meat.
More than the smell, the taste was rich in flavor.
It was amazing!!!
My daughter has a pesticide and antibiotics allergy.
For that reason, we bought the most expensive organic chicken meat we could find in a supermarket to cook with it.
But the quality of the oil of the top-grade supermarket chicken and this store’s chicken is different!
Even if you eat a lot, your stomach doesn’t feel heavy.
Surprisingly, it was even a pleasure to clean the plates and the oven.
I want to film myself cleaning and show everyone.

Translated from Japanese: If it's this big, it's worth cooking, so I divided it into two parts to eat in a stew and grill it. I enjoyed the unique aroma of lamb. It was fresh and beautiful meat.

Translated from Japanese: This is a reorder. I want to make stew, but they don't sell a whole piece of lamb anywhere near me.
It’s delicious even if it’s cut thinly and suits Genghis Khan.

Delicious

Translated from Japanese: Although it’s frozen, if you take the time to thaw it, the meat will be very moist without any unpleasant smell. I boiled it in thyme, chickpea, turmeric, and paprika. Nothing beats this.

Exactly like the picture!

Translated from Japanese: You can enjoy that there is no difference between the picture and the actual amount of meat in person. There’s nothing to complain about if you get this amount for a discounted price! The shop’s correspondence is also good.

I recommend it!

Translated from Japanese: I bought it to have BBQ with friends.
I marinated it for a short time with garlic, rock salt, olive oil and rosemary and then grilled it. It was very soft. It didn’t smell and everyone liked it!
A friend who had been in Australia for a long time praised it as "the most delicious lamb I've ever eaten" and my popularity has gone up haha. The gorgeous appearance and flavor are perfect. I will order again!
Without cutting it, I cooked it from the side of the fat and wrapped it in foil to heat it. After that, I cut it and lightly roasted each cross section and lightly sprinkled lemon and black pepper on top. Easy and super delicious! I recommend it.

Delicious!

Translated from Japanese: I'd be happy if the price was a little more reasonable, but it can't be helped if it's a good product!
Thank you!

It was delicious

Translated from Japanese: The meat was very soft and juicy, and it was delicious without any unpleasant smell.
My family who ate lamb for the first time also said it’s tastier than beef! I was impressed. We will order again.

My most hated food turned into my favorite

Translated from Japanese: Previously, lamb meat in Hokkaido was very smelly, so I disliked lamb meat from that point on.
But lately, my wife has been cooking this shop’s meat at home and at first, I refused to eat it. But then I thought, what? This is really lamb? There was no smell, the meat was soft and somehow I ate up everything. I will order again, as it was very very delicious.

Lovely

I had this lamb chops with my boyfriend. At first he was very sceptical because he had lamb once in Hokkaido and it was gross. But after convincing him that high quality lamb isn't tangy, he gave it a try and was stunned. This lamb is really delicious and tender. We both love it

Safe, organic and delicious

Translated from Japanese: It was delicious with a very gentle taste. You can verify the origin of the ingredients and because high quality chicken was used, you can eat with confidence. You can't get a frozen meat pie like this anywhere else. The volume was solid, and I was full with this alone. It’s a meat pie that you want to keep in stock.

Gentle taste

Translated from Japanese: Chicken pie with a natural and gentle taste. There wasn’t a strong taste of unnatural seasonings, so it was very delicious.
I don’t like green peas, but I could eat this pie without the green peas interfering with the taste of other ingredients.
My family is a family of three, so I'd be happy if there were three sold together.

Decided to have this on a regular!

Translated from Japanese: When using my oven, after 35 minutes, the dough on the side of the pie was still white even though the upper part was brown already, but it was delicious anyway. The dough is crispy and the contents are delicious with the scent of laurel, and when you don't have time to cook, you can have it with either salad or soup as a full meal.
If you have lamb sheep meat or minced wild boar, I will buy it!
I would like you to sell frozen puff pastry made from organic flour and butter in the future. You can't go shopping too far in times of Corona, so if you have pie dough made from organically grown ingredients online, you can always make tart with fruits ... Chicken liver pie wrapping ... Please consider it!

Absolutely Delicious!

I love chicken pies and these certainly did not disappoint, from the flaky pastry to the rich, very tasty filling! Highly recommend these delicious pies!

Perfect for lunch and light meals.

Translated from Japanese: One pie is enough to fill you up. The taste was not too strong and it was very delicious.
It seems to be very useful for holiday brunch, and it’s a nice product to have in the freezer.
I want to order it again in the future.
