Translated from Japanese: It had a strong pork flavor and was delicious to eat. I'm really happy that it had no odor.

Translated from Japanese: It’s a soft and very delicious pork loin.
There is no odor and you can eat it just by boiling it in water. It doesn't harden even when it gets cold, so it's recommended to eat in a salad.
Also, since it’s separated by thin paper, it’s good that you can easily take out only the amount you need.
However, since it’s a thin-cut loin, it disappears in a blink of an eye.

Pork that is healthy to eat

Translated from Japanese: I had it as shabu-shabu. It has no odor and has a refreshing taste, it’s full of flavor and you can eat as much as you want. Is this the result of growing up in a stress-free breeding environment? I’m simply impressed. The packing is also very polite and easy to use. Thank you. It seems to be easy to use for various dishes, so I’ve decided to use it as a regular ingredient.

The best pork

Translated from Japanese: I received various things, but I’m reviewing this one first because it defrosted the fastest.
I was surprised that it was carefully packed. Needless to say, it was delicious. The flavor was amazing. I always want to eat such delicious pork. I would be grateful if you could provide it in smaller pieces.

Dorobuta Free-Range Pork Shoulder Slices for Shabu Shabu (300g)

Horizon Farms
PK304
Buy More, Save More

These slices are made for the Japanese dish called Shabu-Shabu. Shabu-shabu is a Japanese hotpot dish of thinly sliced meat and vegetables boiled in water and served with dipping sauces. 

300g of extremely thin (1mm / 3/64″) slices of pork from the shoulder roast. One of the most flavorful cuts of pork. Abundantly marbled and rich in flavor - hands down - this quality of meat is something you won't even find at a top-end Shabu Shabu restaurant in Japan. Not only is this the best of the best, but pork from the El Paso Ranch is also all-year free-roaming, free of antibiotics and growth-promoting hormones. This greatly improves the texture and the aroma of the pork meat. A difference you will see, smell and taste. So much that we strongly advise tasting the pork without sauces first to appreciate the quality. 

To make it easy on you every slice is separated by a sheet as seen in the image. Usually, one person consumes 150g to 200g. For a family of 3, two packs are sufficient. We are also offering slices from the ribeye of pork. Give them both a try and decide who wins. The slices featured in the video below are both the ribeye and the shoulder slices.

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.

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.

Pork Shabu Shabu Recipe Instructions

Dorobuta Shabu Shabu Shoulder Slices

We recommend defrosting the packs shortly before serving. Defrosting the thin slices over a long period of time, for example, more than 24h will make the pork fat too soft to handle. 

Dorobuta Shabu Shabu Shoulder Slices

Each slice is separated by a sheet. This way you can easily separate the thin slices.

Dorobuta Pork Shabu Shabu Slices Ribeye

There are two ways to do this. The informal way: you serve the pack as is on the table and each person takes a sheet and separates the pork slices themselves. 

Dorobuta Ribeye Shabu Shabu Pork

Or the more formal way: you separate all slices ahead and place them on a plate for your guests to take.

Dorobuta Shabu Shabu Pork Ribeye Slices

For a real Shabu Shabu experience, you will need a hot pot and a portable gas burner or hot plate for indoor use - a very common appliance in Japan. Once the water has reached boiling point reduce it to a simmer for cooking. Then add the vegetables. For high-quality meat, the broth for Shabu Shabu should be water and just a kombu seaweed. The meat and vegetables are dipped in sauce before eating. 

Dorobuta Shabu Shabu Ribeye Slices

Next, cook the pork, swishing the pieces lightly through the broth or submerging them briefly. Cook only one slice at a time, rather than trying to cook everything at once. 

Dorobuta Pork Shabu Shabu Pork Ribeye

Shabu Shabu should be enjoyed slowly like fondue, with the ingredients cooked over the course of the meal. Take the slice out of the broth once cooked - no worries if you eat slightly undercooked pork. 

Dorobuta Pork Shabu Shabu Ribeye Slices

Submerge the slice in your own small bowl of favorite sauce. The most popular sauces are Ponzu (a citrus-based sauce commonly used in Japanese cuisine) and sesame sauce. Enjoy five-star quality Shabu Shabu at home with the whole family.

Translated from Japanese: I made shumai and after I kneaded it well, I didn't have heartburn at all. After all, the free-range pigs have exceptionally good fat quality. .. ..

Translated from Japanese: I arrived here looking for something very safe.
I made a hamburger steak right away. I had never made it with pork alone, but when I tried it, it had a good texture and no odor and I didn't use any spices other than salt and pepper. I was surprised! I don’t feel like having anything other than this from now on. In a blink of an eye, I consumed 3 packs and ordered again.

The pack is easy to use

Translated from Japanese: I think I can say that it was the most delicious minced pork I have ever eaten. There was no odor and there was so much flavor. My family also loved it. And above all, I’m grateful that it’s safe. I felt that the price was not too high. I made grilled lotus root with a filling, but next time I want to make dumplings.

With broccoli

Translated from Japanese: After thawing, I put it straight out of the bag in the frying pan, added vegetables, cooked the meat for 4 minutes, sprinkled a little pepper on top, covered the frying pan with a lid and cooked everything on low heat. After putting half of it on a plate, I enjoyed it with some ketchup! It’s a delicious treat with pumpkin and enoki mushrooms.

I want them without herbs

Translated from Japanese: The meat quality is very good! I'm used to bacon and sausages with only pork, salt and spices, so I'm grateful to buy them here. However, the spices and herbs are unique to me... My husband said they have a strong smell but he can eat them, it seems a little impossible for me and my children (> _

Good butcher's sausage

Recommended for barbecue

Translated from Japanese: When I cooked both sides firmly on the grill, the oil was equivalent to 6 sheets of kitchen paper. I like grilling well even if the meat gets smaller. A type that firmly contains fat suitable for barbecue
It was delicious.
More suitable for grilling than frying-pan cooking.

I want to order them again

Translated from Japanese: They were delicious. They may not be expensive to other people, but they’re expensive for me. However, I was happy to buy the sausages, which have no preservatives and are safe and delicious, so I'd like to order them again.

Translated from Japanese: I was impressed!!! This item is great. I boiled them in their bag and then cooked them until crispy. My whole family was overjoyed and praised them as "delicious!!" with every bite.
It was my first purchase, but I already made a second order. I'm looking forward to the bacon. There aren't many sausages without additives at supermarkets, so I'm happy I can buy them here.

They're delicious

Translated from Japanese: It's more like eating meat than a sausage.
They're very delicious, but the herbs are a little too strong...
This is the opinion of the whole family of five.....
It has the taste of overseas food.
If you added only a moderate amount of spices and herbs, I’d be thankful.

Safe for children!

Translated from Japanese: When I want to have a BBQ with my family, I was looking for a sausage that even children could eat with no worries.
There are 4 sausages in 1 pack and 2 sausages were eaten by my 4-year-old daughter.
They’re big, the taste is delicious and the price is good. My whole family is very satisfied!
I was delighted to share them with my friends, too!

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!!!
