Free-Range Kurobuta Pork Belly Slices (300g)

Horizon Farms

PK326


Due to the ever-increasing demand for free-range pork, we have added a new ranch to our family. This product will come from either Nakano Farms or Tsukinoakari Farms. Both the weight and the high quality of the pork are the same. Please note that we are not able to support requests for specific farms. Please refer to the bottom of this page for more information about our farms.

Juicy and flavorsome yaki niku slices from 100% Kurobuta pork belly. Kurobuta pork is juicy, well-marbled, and has a superior flavor. These cuts are specifically made for yaki niku or Japanese rice bowl dishes that call for braised pork belly cuts. Each pack contains a total of 300g (10.5oz) of slices. Please note that Kurobuta belly is extra fatty and some cuts may come with have larger portions of fat on them, they render beautifully on the yaki niku grill and provide extra rich flavor.

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.

Only fat

Translated from Japanese: Since it’s pork belly, it must be relatively fatty, but this was almost only fat and made me feel sick after I ate it.
I wish the store considered packing a product that is well-balanced in terms of lean and fatty parts.

This time it was too greasy.

Translated from Japanese: It's still very delicious, but this time I was sad because it was full of fat.
I bought this free-range pork because I was concerned about my health...
If there’s too much fat, you can use less oil when cooking, so you can order with confidence.
As the taste is very good!

As it is or for arrangements!

Translated from Japanese: I like it very much. It has elasticity and richness.
I wondered if I’d like Iberian pork, as it’s expensive and the environmental footprints in terms of transportation were on my mind, too.
But even as it is, it was delicious. Boiled, smoked, steamed with vegetables, cooked with rice, etc., baked with walnut miso! All of that was delicious. Even the fat is delicious, so my family, who usually don't eat fat, was happy to eat it. I will order again.

Translated from Japanese: To be honest, I ordered this without expecting much.
However, I was surprised when I ate it.
It was insanely delicious.
I will order again.

Worth it

Translated from Japanese: When you eat it, the fat melts like butter and tastes sweet. The meat is soft and crispy.
The best pork fried with ginger ever.
