The pork shoulders are frozen and have never been defrosted to guarantee the highest quality and freshness. Each pork shoulder is closely trimmed and comes boneless and skinless - ready for roasting. We recommend using a string to tie the roast to keep it in a round shape. You can use any string as long as it is 100% cotton. See the cooking instructions below.

Pork Shoulder Recipe Instructions

Borrowdale Free Range Pork Shoulder

Completely defrost the roast in the fridge. We do not recommend the water defrosting as you'd have to leave the meat unattended for a very long period. Once defrosted open the pack and let the roast breathe. Pat dry with a paper towel. 

Borrowdale Free Range Pork Shoulder

This is not necessary but we recommend to tie the roast. This keeps the roast nicely shaped even while cooking. You can use any string as long as it is 100% cotton. Never use plastic or synthetic strings. 

Borrowdale Free Range Pork Shoulder

We used 6 knots on our roast which is more than enough. No worries, there is no complicated technique. Simply cut 6 long enough strings and place them on the cutting board. After that, place the roast over the strings and tie all 6 strings like you'd tie a shoe. Place the roast into a skillet or an oven tray or pan.

Borrowdale Free Range Pork Shoulder

Now comes the seasoning part. We've used plenty of olive oil, diced potatoes, carrots, garlic knobs, red onion, and fresh thyme and of course sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and garlic powder. Make sure the roast is covered in seasoning.

Borrowdale Free Range Pork Shoulder

Next, we want to crisp up the outer layer of the roast. For that, we need a hot oven. Preheat to 220 degrees Celsius (430 degrees Fahrenheit) and let it roast for about 30 minutes until the outer layer is crispy brown.

Borrowdale Free Range Pork Shoulder

This is how the roast should look like after about 30 minutes. The inside of the roast should still be uncooked. Now we need to slowly cook the inside. Set the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit) and let it roast for another 30 minutes. Add half a cup of water in case the pan or skillet has run dry. Because every oven is different you need to check the internal temperature every 10 minutes to make sure you're not overcooking the roast. 

Borrowdale Free Range Pork Shoulder

After another 30 minutes, the internal temperature of the roast should be at least 65 degrees Celsius (150 degrees Fahrenheit). Take the roast out of the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes - it continues to cook inside on the residue heat. There is no need to cover the roast.

Borrowdale Free Range Pork Shoulder

Take a look at this. Carve into thin slices in front of your drooling guests. Don't forget to remove the strings. 

Borrowdale Free Range Pork Shoulder

Serve with vegetables. Sprinkle with sea salt when required. You can make a pork-based gravy from the liquid that is left in the skillet or oven pan. 

Borrowdale Free Range Pork Shoulder

Juicy and tender pork shoulder. Discover the real taste of pork. Enjoy!

Translated from Japanese: Delicious either way~
It smells good when sliced into thick slices, soaked in salted koji.
It has the original aroma of meat, not that of when the seasoning is burnt!

No odor

Translated from Japanese: This 2kg big chunk of meat surprised me.
I tried grilled meat soaked in salted jiuqu and char siu.
It was soft and delicious with little fat ♪
(Supermarket pork smells when stir-fried ...)
I still have 1/3 left, so it's fun to think about what kind of dish to cook next.

Real pork meat

Translated from Japanese: Just like the product description said, it’s really delicious. I would prefer it if you sold only half of the size, as it’s really big.

Will reorder!

Translated from Japanese: I'm very satisfied!
I baked it for Christmas! The skin was thin and crispy and it was the best. I sprinkled it with herb salt before baking, put garlic, salted lemon, pesticide-free citrus inside half of the chicken and baked it in a 27 cm Le Creuset with flavored vegetables arranged around the outside of the chicken. I put butter between the outer skin and the meat underneath to make the breast meat moister. There were other things to eat as well, so this size was enough for three people.

It was delicious!

Translated from Japanese: I wanted to eat samgyetang with my family on New Year's Day and after searching for chicken on several websites, I thought that the meat of Horizon Farms, which I had purchased before, was the safest, so I bought it.
The meat was firm, filling and delicious.
The amount was larger than I had expected, so I cooked glutinous rice with the remaining amount and enjoyed the chicken until the end.

R
Rakuten

Translated from Japanese: This is my first time buying it and I wonder what was the chicken I had eaten so far? This was so juicy and rich in taste.
It's our annual roast chicken and my children were cheering that it was delicious many times.
I want to order it again ♪

R
Rakuten

Translated from Japanese: I ordered this to make roasted chicken for our Christmas treat. The price is high, but I was relieved because I wanted safe organic chicken. When roasted in the oven, the outside was crispy and the inside was juicy and delicious. I will order it again next year.

Translated from Japanese: Recently, I buy it with other meat every time. The bone broth made from these chicken bones is very delicious. Even though it's chicken bones, they have a fair amount of meat, so I'm looking forward to eating it. I used to make it in a slightly shallow pot, but I bought a pan for bone broth. I'm looking forward to it. Thank you for the wonderful product. I will order again.

I always order here. Safe, secure, easy to make and delicious

Translated from Japanese: Since I started buying here, making chicken bone broth has become really easy and delicious.
It's processed very neatly and it's organic, so I put it in a pot without any pretreatment and make bone broth with flavored vegetables. I'm very satisfied because it's always the same and delicious. I always buy in bulk.
There are more and more attractive products, so I think it's a great deal to get as much as you want until you apply for free shipping. From ordering to the arrival of the goods, everything is very smooth, very convenient and helpful.

Very delicious!

Translated from Japanese: I originally bought two packs for New Year. There are two chicken bones in one pack. I made chicken broth immediately. I made a very delicious broth and I got four small Ziploc broth soups. I have it every day with my dog! Of course, it’s chewy, too. Also, after finishing the soup, there was 350g of meat from the bones, so I gave it to my dog who loved it. I'll make it again ~ ♪

You can make the best bone broth

Translated from Japanese: I made oxtail bone broth with the most collagen.
The meat is so beautiful that you don't even need to remove the lye, so you can quickly squeeze it in hot water.
I just simmered it with vegetables and had a delicious bone broth.
It’s one of my favorite products that I have been ordering many times.

For oxtail soup

Translated from Japanese: I always make oxtail soup out of it and it’s delicious.
There is also a moderate amount of oil and you can make it delicious enough just by boiling it.

It’s delicious

Translated from Japanese: I made tail soup for the first time! Even if you don’t wash the meat with water, the soup tastes delicious without any odor and with just a little bit of lye. If you simmer it for at least 3 hours, the meat will be tender and really delicious. I will order again.

R
Rakuten

Translated from Japanese: First, I made oxtail soup, after that I boiled the peeled meat that was in one half of the soup and made oxtail curry.
I cut off the excess fat, which was also easy to use afterwards. After thawing, a little blood came out, so once I boiled the meat, I got a gentle and delicious soup without any smell. My family loved it.
I will order again.

Increased umami?

Translated from Japanese: Previously, I boiled it with water, carefully drained everything and spilled more hot water on it. After repeating this 1 to 3 times, I made bone broth with a pressure cooker. I watched a video of a cooking researcher and changed my mind. That person put the meat in boiling water and there was only a small amount of lye on the surface, so I think the taste when made into bone broth must be strong. It also saves water… Now, I make bone broth exclusively in this way and it’s delicious.

Translated from Japanese: Since it’s meat with bones, I stewed it steadily. I want to get collagen.

It was my mistake that the plastic came up after boiling it for a few hours. There was hard, transparent plastic shaped like a sock that seems to have been wrapped around the bones. I thawed the meat, washed it lightly and put it in a pot, but I didn't notice the plastic at all.

I have to be careful next time.

One word: It's the best

Translated from Japanese: I made simmered Beijing home-style lamb and radish for the first time in a long time for New Year!
My whole family loved it!
I just simmered it for about 40 minutes in a pressure cooker and another 20 minutes with radish. The meat is firm and has no odor.

Translated from Japanese: I made Chanasan Makh out of it and it was delicious. The meat had good quality.

Translated from Japanese: I purchased this for Christmas.
I slowly simmered it in tomato sauce at a low temperature in the oven.
There was no odor peculiar to lamb meat and it was very delicious. I’m glad I bought it.

Translated from Japanese: After trial and error on how to eat my favorite lamb shank deliciously, I ended up with a simple cooking method of boiled water. Half of the soup and meat is curry and the other half is kishimen, which is a specialty of Henan Province, China. The soup is incredibly delicious with just salt and white pepper. At first, I used to use a lot of garlic, green onions, and condiments, but Horizon Farms' lamb has an elegant flavor, so a minimum amount of seasoning is enough to make it delicious.
