The pork tenderloin is quite small but by far the most tender part of pork. Choose between 380g (13.4oz) and 500g (17.6oz). Did you know that there are only two tenderloins per pig? The demand for pork tenderloins is always higher than what small family farmers can supply. That is one of the reasons what they always sell out fast or are unavailable in the first place. We were able to import a few from our friends at Borrowdale. The tenderloin of pork is extremely lean and will cook very fast. Best served sliced or as pork medallions (filet mignons). Find the cooking instructions below.

Defrost the tenderloin in the fridge or in cold water. Due to its size, the tenderloin will defrost relatively quickly. Once completely defrosted open the pack and pat dry with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
Season with sea salt flakes, freshly ground black pepper, garlic powder, and dried thyme. Simple sea salt and black pepper will do great as well.
Add olive oil to the fry pan or skillet. The tenderloin has an uneven thickness, so you need to be careful not to overcook it. Although extremely tender and forgiving - the best taste experience is medium-well. Therefore cook it on low heat and keep turning the tenderloin.
The pork tenderloin is very lean so there won't be any fat oozing out. Once you notice the tenderloin has run dry while cooking, add olive oil to the frying pan. Keep turning.
Once the internal temperature has reached 62 degrees Celsius (145 degrees Fahrenheit) remove the tenderloin from the heat and let it rest for another five minutes. It will continue to cook on the inside.
Slice into thick slices and you'll have pork tenderloin medallions a la 5-star gourmet restaurant. Or cut into thinner slices as seen in our presentation. Use pork-based gravy sauce, whole steamed potatoes, and mixed vegetables on the side.
Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley for taste and presentation. Enjoy the real taste of free-range pork with your family.
Translated from Japanese: I bought 3 bags when I reordered.
Deliciousness that soaks into the heart. I like it.
Translated from Japanese: I've been getting this since I started shopping here.
It's always stable and delicious.
Translated from Japanese: I use this to make bone broth!
Just by boiling, delicious stock comes out and I drink it almost every day.
Indispensable in my home!!!
Translated from Japanese: I bought it to make bone broth.
The number of days from ordering to delivery is quick which is convenient.
Above all, I’m happy that a delicious soup is made without any odor.
I would like to order again.
Translated from Japanese: There was no odor and it was in a beautiful state!
I used it for bone broth and I managed to cook a beautiful golden soup.
I will order again ^ _ ^
Translated from Japanese: I bought this whole chicken because I wanted to get soup stock out of the bones. I don't know how to cook many dishes, so I chose my favorite mizutaki.
Since the breeding period is long, I expected it to be old, but the taste is refreshing and the body is soft.
But hmm (tears)
I took the lye out carefully, but the unique taste and smell are spicy. Japanese chicken is very delicious with only salt, but this was not possible. You can't add garlic, onions or tomatoes. I managed to eat it with curry spice.
I should have followed the recommended recipe.
I want to eat naturally grazing chicken, so I will study how to cook it and try again.
I have a feeling that this will become a standard for celebrations!
Translated from Japanese: Even though the taste is strong, the fat is really delicious!!!
When eating this store’s chicken breast, I realized there’s a difference to usual chicken and because a family member’s birthday is near, I’ve decided to order this whole chicken.
I cooked it the same as always, but the meat quality is completely different!
The whole family is a total fan of this taste and aroma. Thank you (^^)
Translated from Japanese: Although I have bought several types of chicken here already, it’s my first time trying this whole chicken.
To prepare it carefully, I washed it, but even so, there was no fat or blood on the chicken.
It was the same with the other chicken products I already tried, but there was also not the characteristic (strong) smell of chicken.
Because it’s hard to know the chicken’s life from the packs that you can find in the supermarket, I could finally feel with this product that the chicken’s life was spent preciously. I’m thankful I’m able to enjoy this chicken meat and won’t waste a bite, as one shouldn’t forget this animal once had a precious life, too.
Although I boiled it for 1½ hours, the meat didn’t get dry, the fat sticking to the meat had no unpleasant smell and I got a soup with a golden color.
I order all the meat I need from this store, I’ve come to not like any other ones.
Although I eat a lot less meat now, I have not become a vegetarian or vegan yet, so I think I want to not forget to at least be thankful for the meal this chicken gave me.
I’m sorry for this long comment.
I will order again.
I tried a whole chicken for the first time.
Translated from Japanese: Preciously raised chickens packaged carefully (for delivery) arrived in the best condition possible.
I grilled it with natural salt and thyme from my garden. It was really delicious, a complete success. Even cooled down packed inside a bento, there is no unpleasant smell.
Translated from Japanese: I always buy Australian products when I want to make bone broth and this is my first time trying Austrian products. The 500g size is also small and easy to handle and I felt that there was a strong tendency for it to become gelatinous (collagen?) when the bone broth is refrigerated. As for the taste, both are perfectly delicious.
I buy it every time
Translated from Japanese: I cook this oxtail and meat guy's beef tendon for 12 hours to make curry.
Does it take so long because it’s grain-finished? I'm grateful that you can get grass-fed meat at this price.
The meat also comes off smoothly.
Bone broth soup with plenty of collagen
Translated from Japanese: This is my favorite taste of bone broth soup.
If you pay attention to the water and oxtail added, collagen will come out and it will become plump after boiling for a long time. It's possible to freeze the soup stock.
For oxtail soup
Translated from Japanese: I always buy it to make tail soup. Domestic Wagyu beef has a lot of oil, but this one has a moderate amount of oil and is delicious as it is without any preparation.
Translated from Japanese: I bought these to make bone broth easily and they were better than I expected.
Preparing the meat beforehand is recommended because it can be finished deliciously with salt and pepper without any odor by removing the lye only once.
It was delicious even with oatmeal and risotto.
Translated from Japanese: I cooked one in the oven and put the other in a stew. The result is odorless, soft and delicious.
Translated from Japanese: This is my second time ordering. It was as delicious as last time, but this time it had a long bone and barely fit in the pressure cooker. 😅
It's like the meat in the old-fashioned anime Gyātoruzu. It's very satisfying to eat. I’d like to order again.
Translated from Japanese: I stewed it in wine inside a pressure cooker. The meat is beautiful and the taste is very good! Speaking of treats in NZ, as I was eating this meat, I was happy that I could order and cook it so easily. I’d like to order again.
I’m suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
Translated from Japanese: I'm suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (CS), so I searched for safe meat that was drug-free and wasn't fed with strange foods. Sheep are said to be nutritious, but I can't find them in Japan, so I bought them in bulk up to the free shipping line, although it's a little expensive. I forcibly thawed and cooked it on the day I arrived, so it was still hard even if I used a pressure cooker, but it was delicious. I made tomato stew with it. The meat has a mellow lamb scent. Bone marrow is the best. The fat had a gummy-like feeling. I used to eat Genghis Khan, which only tasted like sauce, so I was satisfied with the lamb-taste spreading in my mouth. I'm looking forward to trying the other meats.
Translated from Japanese: The delivery was quick and the meat was better than I had imagined! It's safe and secure and I think this price is a good deal. I will order again.
