Free Range Pork

Free-Range Kurobuta Pork Shoulder Slices From Hokkaido (300g)

Horizon Farms


Beautifully marbled and mesmerizing thin cuts from 100% Kurobuta pork shoulder. Kurobuta pork is juicy, well-marbled, and has a superior flavor. These slices are perfectly made for Japanese sukiyaki and shabu shabu. Each pack contains a total of 300g (10.5oz) of thinly sliced cuts to 2mm (1/16"). Recommended for special occasions only.

100% full-blooded Kurobuta pork is well-known for superior quality, juiciness, flavor, and marbling. Kurobuta is slightly darker in color and richer in flavor. The Kurobuta pigs from the Nakano farm are raised on open pasture in the idyllic Tokachi region of Hokkaido which provides the perfect conditions for raising pigs as nature intended. The pigs are free to forage and wallow on open pasture and are raised slowly with love and respect by the Nakano family for 12 months which is double the time of conventional factory-farmed pigs. It goes without saying that the pigs are raised without antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones. All feed is locally produced and sourced. All images are actual images of the family farm. See below.

The sweet and not persistent fat is delicious

Translated from Japanese: This meat goes well with various hot pot dishes and will upgrade any of them.
If you put this meat that has been cooked separately in a pot that has all the ingredients other than the meat, you can eat the lean part softly and you can enjoy the fat as a pre-preparation.
The fat is sweet, doesn’t upset my stomach and I always have it around for my elderly family members because they love eating it, too.


Translated from Japanese: It tasted more like beef than pork. It seems to go well with sukiyaki. I fried it, but next time I want to try sukiyaki.


Translated from Japanese: I tried it as sukiyaki. It was a tender and delicious meat where the fat is good, too. I usually buy minced meat because it’s easy to use and I’d like to continue ordering it with the same deliciousness.
