Dorobuta Free Range Ground Pork (340g)

Horizon Farms
PK300
Buy More, Save More

340g of ground pork/mince made from the leg. No trimmings used or fat mixed in. Just the pork leg (also referred to as pork ham). The natural fat/meat ratio of pork leg is 20/80 - which is the perfect balance for juicy ground pork. Taken straight out of the freezer and placed in cold water they can be defrosted in less than 45 minutes.

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.

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. The pigs are a slow and naturally grown British Camborough breed. They are fed a large variety of feed mixes that contain all kinds of grains, corn, soybeans, and other vegetables and farm produce (pigs can’t survive only on grass, so there won't be grass-fed pork any time soon). Newborn stay in a shelter together with their mother until they learn how to take care of themselves. No tail clipping of piglets, no gestation crates for sows. No factory farming. They receive all the respect, love and care. See for yourself, all images and videos are real.

Translated from Japanese: There was no odor and the fat was reasonably delicious (^^)

R

Translated from Japanese: It was packed carefully as usual. I'm looking forward to eating it.

Translated from Japanese: I thought that my daughter's first time having meat should be safe meat, so I found this and ordered it. She ate both minced pork and minced chicken deliciously. The amount was larger than I expected and we adults could enjoy it, too. It's expensive compared to supermarket meat, but it's good quality, safe, secure and delicious, and I felt that the cost performance was very good. I’d like to order here again.

Translated from Japanese: The ratio of lean and fat is exquisite. Even if you mix it with minced beef or only eat this minced pork, the hamburger is very delicious.
Even when seasoned sweet and spicy and boiled with pumpkin and taro, it’s delicious and not dry.
I will order again.

Dumplings are more delicious

Translated from Japanese: I purchased this to make dumplings.
It was very delicious, as expected from free-range pigs from Hokkaido.
I bought a lot of other things, but I haven't eaten them yet, so I'm looking forward to them.

Translated from Japanese: I eat them not only as they are but also put them in soup. I think the spices were a little strong at first, but I’ve grown accustomed to the scent. I always want to have it at home.

Safe and delicious!

Translated from Japanese: I made pot-au-feu with savoy cabbage and potatoes.
Even if you just boil them as they are, you will be surprised about the deep taste of the herbs and spices!
They were very delicious just by lightly salting and peppering them. The sausage have a fluffy and gentle texture, they’re solid and my family loves them. I will order again!

Translated from Japanese: I bought it for the first time ⭐︎
The spicy aroma and the soft sausage with thin skin and plenty of meat made it very delicious ♪
It tasted good, so it was delicious when fried with my favorite vegetables ⭐︎

Rakuten

Translated from Japanese: I usually don't buy sausages because they have a lot of additives, but I bought these because they are additive-free and sugar-free. First of all, the volume is amazing. I had them as a side dish for dinner, but I couldn't finish them and divided them into two meals. I fried them in a frying pan. Next time, I’d like you to boil them. Also, I’d like to order them again.

I was looking for something like this!

Translated from Japanese: They're delicious.
They're very delicious.
These are proper raw sausages that make you fully enjoy the flavor of herbs and the real flavor of sausages.
Of course, they have a straightforward, delicious taste. I’m glad I found them.

They burst!

Translated from Japanese: If you cook them directly without boiling beforehand (charcoal on BBQ) the skin bursts, so it seems to be better to boil them once before cooking.

The seasoning had a strong herb flavor and my 5-year-old daughter didn't like it, but we adults were OK!

Delicious without sugar

Translated from Japanese: Even if I use good pork, there aren't many sugar-free sausages, and I haven't had a chance to eat sausages these days, but I bought this because it’s good pork without sugar! It was a delicious sausage with herbs working well that made me remember a taste of eating overseas.

Finally a nice breakfast sausage in Japan

Coming from the west one tends to do without when it comes to certain traditional foods. This is the best breakfast sausage I have tasted in years. The bonus is that you can make a perfectly sized patty out of two sausages for the perfect egg and sausage sandwich.

I will be ordering again!

They’re easy to eat because they’re skinless! The herbal scent is amazing!

Translated from Japanese: They’re naturally without skin, but these are soft and easy to eat. It has just the right amount of salt and you can smell the herbs well. At times when you don’t want to eat more than two sausages, if you just cut open the package, you can conveniently separate them in their frozen state.
Without oil, I slowly cooked them with their own oils and eggs. It was extremely delicious!
I want to stock up on them in my freezer.
I need to buy a bigger freezer!!!

Delicious ~ ♪

Translated from Japanese: One pack contains four sausages about the size of Frankfurt sausages from Japan. After taking them out of the bag for about 5 minutes, I stored them in the freezer separately. First of all, I cooked them simply and had them with sauerkraut. The few sausages you can eat with a peace of mind are really delicious! I might make pot-au-feu out of the rest.

Beyond

Translated from Japanese: They were beyond big. I bought an additive-free, smaller sausage at another store, but I found these by accident and gave them a because I’m attracted to organic products. I was also interested in other products, so I bought them all at once.

Valuable safe and secure ingredients

Translated from Japanese: At any rate, it's a precious sausage! In the current situation in Japan, where it has become commonplace to use color formers, this product is one of the few precious sausages that you can eat with confidence. If possible, it’d be easier to buy if it were a little cheaper…

Safe sausages

Translated from Japanese: They had a good aroma and were very delicious.
Since they’re expensive, I decided to give them 4 stars. I hope more things will be sold that can be eaten with a peace of mind.

Really delicious

Translated from Japanese: I’ve been buying them repeatedly.
You can eat them by sandwiching them in bread
If you put it on top of vegetables and bake them in the oven, the vegetables will absorb the sausage oil and the vegetables get more delicious!
I plan to purchase them again.
