300g (10.6oz) of coarse ground 100% Kurobuta pork/mince from Japan. Kurobuta Pork is juicy, well-marbled, and has a superior flavor. We use the pork leg and pork picnic ham as well as parts from the primal cuts. A typical characteristic of kurobuta pork is a high-fat ratio. This ground pork comes at a 70/30 lean-to-fat ratio and is therefore extremely juicy. Do not add any oil and cook vegetables or other ingredients in the pork fat for incredible flavor. Use for quality meatloaves, meatballs, and burgers.
100% full-blooded Kurobuta pork is well-known for superior quality, juiciness, flavor, and marbling. Kurobuta is slightly darker in color and richer in flavor. The Kurobuta pigs are raised on open pasture as nature intended. The pigs are free to forage and wallow on the open pasture and are raised slowly with love and respect. It goes without saying that the pigs are raised without antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones. All images are actual images of the family farms. See below.

It was delicious, no need to put oil since it’s fatty already 😊 I made meatballs with it for pasta. 😊
The fatty parts give it a bit more beefy flavour and tender if cooked right
Translated from Japanese: It's safe to eat, flavorful, and it's great in just about any dish!
Translated from Japanese: Juicy, very tasty minced meat!
Translated from Japanese: It has a lot of oil, but is also refreshing.
It’s filling, so even a small amount is satisfying!
I made meat sauce and dumplings with it.
