Beautifully marbled and mesmerizing thin cuts from 100% Kurobuta pork shoulder. Kurobuta pork is juicy, well-marbled, and has a superior flavor. These slices are perfectly made for Japanese sukiyaki and shabu shabu. Each pack contains a total of 300g (10.5oz) of thinly sliced cuts to 2mm (1/16"). Recommended for special occasions only.

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 from the Nakano farm are raised on open pasture in the idyllic Tokachi region of Hokkaido which provides the perfect conditions for raising pigs as nature intended. The pigs are free to forage and wallow on open pasture and are raised slowly with love and respect by the Nakano family for 12 months which is double the time of conventional factory-farmed pigs. It goes without saying that the pigs are raised without antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones. All feed is locally produced and sourced. All images are actual images of the family farm. See below.

Translated from Japanese: It tasted more like beef than pork. It seems to go well with sukiyaki. I fried it, but next time I want to try sukiyaki.

R
Rakuten

Translated from Japanese: I tried it as sukiyaki. It was a tender and delicious meat where the fat is good, too. I usually buy minced meat because it’s easy to use and I’d like to continue ordering it with the same deliciousness.

Translated from Japanese: I thought that my daughter's first time having meat should be safe meat, so I found this and ordered it. She ate both minced pork and minced chicken deliciously. The amount was larger than I expected and we adults could enjoy it, too. It's expensive compared to supermarket meat, but it's good quality, safe, secure and delicious, and I felt that the cost performance was very good. I’d like to order here again.

Translated from Japanese: The ratio of lean and fat is exquisite. Even if you mix it with minced beef or only eat this minced pork, the hamburger is very delicious.
Even when seasoned sweet and spicy and boiled with pumpkin and taro, it’s delicious and not dry.
I will order again.

Dumplings are more delicious

Translated from Japanese: I purchased this to make dumplings.
It was very delicious, as expected from free-range pigs from Hokkaido.
I bought a lot of other things, but I haven't eaten them yet, so I'm looking forward to them.

Translated from Japanese: I eat them not only as they are but also put them in soup. I think the spices were a little strong at first, but I’ve grown accustomed to the scent. I always want to have it at home.

Safe and delicious!

Translated from Japanese: I made pot-au-feu with savoy cabbage and potatoes.
Even if you just boil them as they are, you will be surprised about the deep taste of the herbs and spices!
They were very delicious just by lightly salting and peppering them. The sausage have a fluffy and gentle texture, they’re solid and my family loves them. I will order again!

Translated from Japanese: I bought it for the first time ⭐︎
The spicy aroma and the soft sausage with thin skin and plenty of meat made it very delicious ♪
It tasted good, so it was delicious when fried with my favorite vegetables ⭐︎

Translated from Japanese: I usually don't buy sausages because they have a lot of additives, but I bought these because they are additive-free and sugar-free. First of all, the volume is amazing. I had them as a side dish for dinner, but I couldn't finish them and divided them into two meals. I fried them in a frying pan. Next time, I’d like you to boil them. Also, I’d like to order them again.

I was looking for something like this!

Translated from Japanese: They're delicious.
They're very delicious.
These are proper raw sausages that make you fully enjoy the flavor of herbs and the real flavor of sausages.
Of course, they have a straightforward, delicious taste. I’m glad I found them.

They burst!

Translated from Japanese: If you cook them directly without boiling beforehand (charcoal on BBQ) the skin bursts, so it seems to be better to boil them once before cooking.

The seasoning had a strong herb flavor and my 5-year-old daughter didn't like it, but we adults were OK!

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!!!

Translated from Japanese: It was delicious. Although these kind of sausages are usually very salty, these were just right.
