A whole skinless pork shank, aka Eisbein from 100% Kurobuta. Kurobuta pork is juicy, well-marbled, and has a superior flavor. This pork shank is made for slow cooking methods only. One whole pork shank weighs approx. 500g (1.1lbs). Might have a very small amount of typical Kurobuta bristle (stiff animal hair) attached - this is very natural and is not a safety or quality issue. Please note this item is limited in availability due to the small family farm's capacity.
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.
