Dorobuta Free-Range Pork Loin Steaks (500g)

El Paso Ranch
PK303

9 items left

Description

The all-time classic boneless pork loin steak. Compared to the pork ribeye steaks these are leaner and are best suitable for Japanese tonkatsu or pan-roasted juicy pork steaks. You get 3 thick and pre-sliced pork loin steaks. A total of at least 500g (1.1lbs) - each steak weighing approximately 160g - (5.6oz) - that's a healthy portion size. 

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: Although it's grass-fed beef, it was delicious without any odor because it’s grain-finished.
Even after thawing and cooking it immediately, it was not dry and soft. It's expensive because it's the highest quality, but it was meat that made me want to eat it again.

Translated from Japanese: It had the feeling of “American beef”.

Delicious meat with no strange taste!

Translated from Japanese: Because the meat was so thick, it’s not enough to only cook two sides, but the sides have to be carefully grilled as well to reach the medium rare state. It’s an unique article that tastes good from the first bite, but is even more delicious when you chew it. When you say “ah” with the food in your mouth, a nice aroma comes out and the meat’s taste spreads evenly. With just salt and pepper, nothing else is needed, I grilled it in a simple way. I thought the fat on the meat would smell, but a properly raised cow is different after all. I’m happy for having had something delicious!

(I ordered) sirloin, flap meat steak and filet mignon

Translated from Japanese: I prepared those three and compared them. My friend liked the sirloin meat. It tastes like steak, my friend said. My husband liked the flap meat steak. He said it tasted like the meat was cut from the best part of the cow. I quickly wrapped it inside a tortilla and ate it like that and even the meat juice sticking to the tortilla was delicious~

Truly different

We bought 10 of these for our garden party last week and each and every person was truly amazed by the quality and the taste. Our chef cooked them to medium and we used your Italian salt. Almost too good to give them to the kids!! We grilled the burgers for them anywy - they were exceptional as well - bravo! My family and I appreciate your business and are very happy to have found healthy and safe meat in Japan. I'd recommend adding more brochures so we can hand them out.
