The whole trimmed tenderloin (filet) from 100% Kurobuta. There are only two tenderloins per pig. The most tender and sought-after part and therefore difficult to come by. Please note that supply for this item is limited due to the small nature of the family farm. Kurobuta pork is juicy, well-marbled, and has a superior flavor. This pork tenderloin is the most tender and lean part of pork you can lay hands on. One whole pork tenderloin weighs approx. 470g (1lb). We recommend cooking the tenderloin in smaller steak medallions in the frying pan.
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.

Translated from Japanese: It was always sold out, so I thought I had to take the opportunity and ordered it.
I used a small amount of high-quality oil to make a filet cutlet. It was delicious.
Domestic products don’t smell after all.
However, the price is high, so I hope I can eat it again soon.
