Completely grazing pork is healthy and good!

Translated from Japanese: I ate it as shabu-shabu. It was delicious, so I'd like to give it 100 points, but the paper that separates each slice of meat stuck and tore the meat, and it was difficult to peel off, so I'll give it 98 points.

It has a strong flavor and is really delicious

Translated from Japanese: I had it as shabu-shabu.
The flavor was very strong and it was really delicious. There is also an oily part, but it’s not heavy and we ate one pack completely.
I'm wondering if, when eating out, shabu-shabu is still good!
I recommend any meat from Horizon Farms, but especially this one.

Really delicious! Easy to use!

Translated from Japanese: The meat is good, soft and tasty. It was really delicious. It’s cut in thin slices and there’s one piece of paper in between every thin slice, so it’s really easy to use.
Actually, I think it’s better to wait properly, but because I was in a hurry and wanted 4 slices, I removed the first on top and the last on the bottom in the frozen state easily.

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

Description

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.

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.

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.

Healthy meat!

Translated from Japanese: I mixed it with onions to make a hamburger steak. I made 3 large hamburgers. It's a small package, so you won’t waste any. It was delicious.

Translated from Japanese: There is not much minced meat that you can eat with no worries, so this one saved me. I made meat sauce by mixing it with minced meat of grass-fed beef. It was better than usual. I thought that the ingredients are the most important when cooking.

Organic and delicious

Translated from Japanese: I made a hamburger steak with this store’s minced pork and minced beef and it was very popular with my family!
Very delicious and I will order this again ^ - ^

I made meatloaf

Translated from Japanese: I made meatloaf by combining this minced meat with minced meat from Australia.
I used onions, carrots, salt, pepper and soy sauce and kneaded everything with eggs until the meat turned sticky and formed it into sticks.
I put it in the oven at 170 degrees for 20 minutes first, and then at 200 degrees for 10 minutes.
I made very delicious meatloaf 😘
The gravy, when you put it in your mouth, is the best.

You can use it for anything

Translated from Japanese: Just like the others said, there was no smell, and you can use it for any dish, which makes it’s convenient.
Fat usually doesn’t stick well, so I was surprised when I formed it into hamburgers (with no issues).
It’s the kind of product that makes my family feel troubled if we don’t see it in our fridge anymore.

At any rate, delicious

Translated from Japanese: I love eggs and I usually eat them boiled, fried, and scrambled without much seasoning, but these eggs are delicious! When I boiled the eggs, I inadvertently heated it a little longer, but it was still very delicious.

Fresh! White yolk!??

Translated from Japanese: I was surprised because it was whiter than the ones in the supermarket, but I was convinced by seeing the feed of the chickens.

Light rather than rich
No unpleasant taste and no odor
It’s an egg that you can eat as many as you like.

I forgot the salt and made a fried egg
It’s delicious enough to eat as it is.

Surprisingly delicious

Translated from Japanese: The natural flavor of the pork itself and the smoked flavor are exquisite and really delicious. I received thick slices, but the balance of the spices suit thin slices better.

J

Translated from Japanese: Delicious! I will buy it again. I will buy it for my friends.
The texture is like ham. It tastes very meaty. The spices are just right.

Translated from Japanese: I bought it because I wanted additive-free bacon. The taste is very delicious and I would like to order again.

J

Translated from Japanese: I tried it for the first time, but I am very satisfied with the price for a product without additives.
It has a nice scent of smoke right when you open the package.

Translated from Japanese: It's very delicious, so I’m ordering again. It’s bacon that cannot be bought at supermarkets.

Convenient

Translated from Japanese: It's delicious pumpkin. There’s a lot in the pack. It's good that it's divided into 3 bags. My freezer was filled to the brim, but I was able to share it with my family.

Love them!

Translated from Japanese: They have a gentle sweetness, they’re sweet to the core and really delicious.
When you shortly heat them up in the microwave and put only pon-zu vinegar and soy sauce on them, it turns into a masterpiece!
I’ve been eating them like dried sweet potatoes or sweet roasted chestnuts!
Because I trust these products, I will order again.

Sweet~

Translated from Japanese: From harvesting, storing to processing, I wonder if these are the reasons for the taste. They’re much sweeter than those from supermarkets. Delicious.

Happy

Translated from Japanese: I bought a whole pumpkin in the supermarket and cut it with a kitchen knife, but it was troublesome to remove the seeds. I want the nutrients of pumpkins, but until now, I refused to get frozen ones. But because these were labeled organic, I ordered them.
The package size is similar to the ones they sell in supermarkets, so I wish it was easier to differentiate that these are organic.

Convenient

Translated from Japanese: I’m very thankful because you can’t get organic vegetables from abroad very easily in Japan. Even if you eat them the way they are, they were really delicious.
