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, Nakano Farm, or Curly Flats Farm of Hokkaido - all 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 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.

Best pork ever

You can't find anything from the market to compete with this meat. The taste was so good that you could simply overeat

Translated from Japanese: I have ordered before. It’s safe to eat and is soft and tasty without being greasy.

Translated from Japanese: It ordered here several times. I was looking for loin meat that I could eat with confidence. The size is just right. I use olive oil exclusively in an iron skillet and cooked it over low heat. It's solid meat. You need to be careful not to overcook, but I personally like it that way.

Translated from Japanese: It was soft and delicious.
It tasted more delicate than I expected, and it wasn't too fatty and delicious.
I cooked only one piece in a frying pan, so I'll cook it on the grill next time. I wonder which one is more delicious.
I'm happy to be able to buy such products.

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