To provide you with a better shopping experience we are slowly welcoming additional free-range pig farmers to our pork product ranges. This product will now be from either the El Paso Ranch or Nakano Farm of Hokkaido - both from the same location, raising all-year free-range pigs without nasties. There is no difference in quality or package size. See more below.

Please note that we are unable to accept requests for a specific farm or fat content regarding this product. Thank you for your understanding.

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. The fat renders beautifully and is the very source of umami. It also provides the cut with plenty of juiciness and tenderness while cooking. You get 1 pre-sliced pork loin steak which is cut to exactly 2cm (0.78") and weigh at least 200g (7oz.).

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 that are raised completely free-range in the Tokachi area of Hokkaido. And when we say free range we mean the real deal free-range. Spring, summer, autumn, and winter - 24 hours, all year free-range. The images below are actual photos of the farms.

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.

Translated from Japanese: I always buy it.
It's soft and not too fatty, and I can enjoy it until the end.

Translated from Japanese: I've forgotten how many times, but it's so delicious that I buy it all the time. The size is just right. I bake it in a frying pan over low heat and eat it. It's soft and filling. I will order again.

Delicious without a bad smell

Translated from Japanese: It was very delicious.
It'd be easier to cook if it was a slightly thinner size.
I’d like to buy it again.

It's different (from commercial pork) from the moment I cut it. Delicious!

Translated from Japanese: I was worried because it’s a frozen vacuum pack, but I read other reviews and decided to order it. I cut the first piece into small pieces and I was surprised that the feeling of the meat when cutting it was solid and the scent was completely different. I can’t remember but it must’ve been decades since I last had this kind of meat. The taste is excellent, the chewy texture is nostalgic, the umami is plentiful, and it’s delicious anyway. I was surprised. I will order again.
