All-year free-range pork leg slices from pigs raised in an open pasture environment. This thinly sliced meat comes from the lean part of the pork leg and is perfect for Japanese dishes such as shabu-shabu, sukiyaki, or even just a simple stir fry. Shabu-shabu is a Japanese hotpot dish of thinly sliced meat and vegetables boiled in water and served with dipping sauces. The pack weighs 300g (10.5oz) and each slice is 2mm thick.
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.
