There was more fat than shown in the product image, but it was acceptable.

Free-Range Kurobuta Pork Belly Slices From Hokkaido (300g)

Horizon Farms
PK326

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 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.

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.

Translated from Japanese: I don't buy minced meat from supermarkets because I don’t like fat, but this minced meat is very delicious without any strange greasiness, so I will order it again.

Y

Translated from Japanese: The pork is bred without using strange medicine, so you can eat it with confidence.
If possible, it’d be helpful if the minced meat could be made a little finer.

Translated from Japanese: Great for barbecue, spicy and delicious. I cooked them well and removed the fat.
They seem to be too spicy for toddlers. They’re ok for elementary school kids.

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.

Y
Yahoo

Translated from Japanese: They were filling spicy sausages with good spiciness.
I boiled them which gave them a delicious roasted texture. They were juicy, full of flavor and very delicious.
Even those who aren’t good with fat can enjoy these sausages and don’t have to worry about heartburn.
It was a product that I’d like to order again.

Delicious, spicy sausages

These sausages have just the right amount of flavor and spice and are very juicy. I have served them to friends and they all love them! They are pretty spicy for kids, though.
I recommend these if you like a bit of spice.

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.

Love these sausages!

Great thick and juicy sausages for a fulfilling meal! Excellent for Sausage & Mash (Toad in the Hole).. good for kids as not too herby or spicy.

Translated from Japanese: The sausages sold in the streets are full of additives and can’t be bought often, but this product can be eaten with a peace of mind and the taste is perfect.

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!

Translated from Japanese: This bacon is my second purchase. I often use it for soups and small stir-fried foods.
I’m relieved. You can’t eat bacon that is normally sold because it contains various additives, but you can eat here with confidence because all the bacon that is sold here doesn’t contain these things.
I will buy it again ☆

Translated from Japanese: I couldn’t eat a lot of bacon on the market because I didn't like the smell of preservatives.
This meat tasted good and it was a very delicious bacon.
From now on, I’m happy that this bacon can be used for cooking. I would like to order it again.

Very delicious and the cost performance is also good

Translated from Japanese: It arrived quickly after ordering. At this price, I think it’s a unique product with this amount and taste.
It has a lot of meat and the fat is fragrant and delicious. There is more satisfaction with this meat than ordinary bacon.
The taste is not too strong, so you can enjoy the flavor of the ingredients themselves.
During this time of remote work, I just fry this bacon in a frying pan and serve it with white rice.
It's a simple and luxurious lunch. I will continue to purchase it.

Translated from Japanese: I couldn't buy additive-free and salt-free products at the nearest supermarkets, so I bought this product that I had been interested in for a long time. I cooked it in a simple way and it was very delicious! After opening, it finished it at once by using it in soup and to make peperoncino. Since there are shipping costs, I can't feel free to buy it, but I would like to purchase it again next time.

Translated from Japanese: This additive-free bacon is really delicious.
I was surprised that it was so different from the supermarket bacon I had eaten so far.
I will order it many times.
I recommend cooking it until crispy with olive oil ^ ^
