People who don’t usually like organ meat were able to eat this deliciously

Translated from Japanese: I mixed chopped green onions to make meatballs and put them in a kimchi pot. Thanks to the hearts mixed into the meat, it has a rich flavor, and the meat tastes strong and goes well with the kimchi taste.

I also made a hamburger steak using only this minced meat. We have created a beautiful hamburger that is soft but does not lose its shape. I have a family who doesn’t like organ meat, but they didn't notice it at all when I kept silent that it contained heart, and ate it because it was delicious. By the way, in the case of this hamburger, I felt a slight aftertaste of the heart.

I thought this product was very interesting when I first saw it. I know the benefits of eating organ meat, but can't quite get myself to eat it as I didn't grow up enjoying the deep flavors. I fed this to my family wondering if they could tell a difference and they didn't say a thing. I made stuffed peppers with minced onion, garlic, and basil. I would say it gives a sausage like flavor, but we really couldn't tell a huge difference. I recommend this product and I will continue to buy it for my family in place of minced pork for certain recipes.

Dorobuta Free Range Ground Pork with 30% Organ Meat (340g)

Horizon Farms
PK530
Buy More, Save More

Bringing you a concept that is gaining big momentum amongst the (healthy) conscious carnivores out there: nutrient-dense ground meat that includes organ meat. In this case, 30% pork hearts, and 70% of clean and pure pork leg. But why? Organs are extremely nutrient and vitamin dense - we all know that - but just a tiny fraction of us dare to actively eat organ meat due to misconceptions, unawareness, or simply because we don't like the taste or the thought of it. So we "hide" the organ meat for you! You and your kids won't likely notice it. But just 30% is enough to cover a lot of the daily required nutritional intake. One pack is 340g (12oz.) sized. Taken straight out of the freezer and placed in cold water it can be defrosted in less than 45 minutes. Use in your favorite recipes just as you would with regular ground pork.

To give you more insight: This concept is also known as a primal blend because it goes back to the way our ancestors ate. Most of the meat that we consume nowadays is muscle meat. The folks that follow the paleo diet (a diet based on the types of foods presumed to have been eaten by early humans excluding dairy or cereal products and processed food) keep stressing out that if we want to eat like our early ancestors, we need to eat "nose to tail" as they did back then - that means making use of the whole animal. Our ancestors didn't just eat the chicken breasts and the filet steaks, their diet included skin, cartilage, bone marrow, organ meats, tendons, and fattier meat cuts. Our primal blend ground is just that, a nutrient-dense blend that includes organs enough to give you and your family a wide array of vitamins and minerals without compromising the familiar taste of meat.

100% real free-range and naturally raised pork from Hokkaido, Japan, probably the only place in Japan that has space for free-roaming animals. Happy as a pig in mud. Bathing in the nearby river during summer and playing around on the snowfields in winter - that's the happy life of the pigs on the family-owned El Paso Ranch in Hokkaido that are raised completely free-range in the Tokachi area. And when we say free range we mean the real deal free-range. Spring, summer, autumn, and winter - 24 hours, all year free-roaming on 30 hectares (75 acres) of land. Read more about the farm below.

Free-range pork, in this case, pastured pork tastes different because it is different! The pigs are able to exercise freely and build natural muscles without the aid of growth promoters. They get to wander and forage with the herd and interact and do not suffer the same stress as intensively farmed pigs. Raising pigs free-range on open pastures is an extremely cost-intensive operation that makes free-range pork more expensive compared to conventional pork products. Give it a try and taste the difference!

Translated from Japanese: I made shumai and after I kneaded it well, I didn't have heartburn at all. After all, the free-range pigs have exceptionally good fat quality. .. ..
It’s out of stock now, but I would like to purchase it again after getting the resale notice.

Translated from Japanese: I arrived here looking for something very safe.
I made a hamburger steak right away. I had never made it with pork alone, but when I tried it, it had a good texture and no odor and I didn't use any spices other than salt and pepper. I was surprised! I don’t feel like having anything other than this from now on. In a blink of an eye, I consumed 3 packs and ordered again.

The pack is easy to use

Translated from Japanese: I think I can say that it was the most delicious minced pork I have ever eaten. There was no odor and there was so much flavor. My family also loved it. And above all, I’m grateful that it’s safe. I felt that the price was not too high. I made grilled lotus root with a filling, but next time I want to make dumplings.

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.

I want them without herbs

Translated from Japanese: The meat quality is very good! I'm used to bacon and sausages with only pork, salt and spices, so I'm grateful to buy them here. However, the spices and herbs are unique to me... My husband said they have a strong smell but he can eat them, it seems a little impossible for me and my children (> _

Good butcher's sausage

Translated from Japanese: The meat is tightly packed and delicious. The spiciness is not moderate.
I didn't taste any greasiness or odor because of the good meat quality combined with nutmeg.

Reorder

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.

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!

Delicious without sugar

Translated from Japanese: Even if I use good pork, there aren't many sugar-free sausages, and I haven't had a chance to eat sausages these days, but I bought this because it’s good pork without sugar! It was a delicious sausage with herbs working well that made me remember a taste of eating overseas.

Finally a nice breakfast sausage in Japan

Coming from the west one tends to do without when it comes to certain traditional foods. This is the best breakfast sausage I have tasted in years. The bonus is that you can make a perfectly sized patty out of two sausages for the perfect egg and sausage sandwich.

I will be ordering again!

They’re easy to eat because they’re skinless! The herbal scent is amazing!

Translated from Japanese: They’re naturally without skin, but these are soft and easy to eat. It has just the right amount of salt and you can smell the herbs well. At times when you don’t want to eat more than two sausages, if you just cut open the package, you can conveniently separate them in their frozen state.
Without oil, I slowly cooked them with their own oils and eggs. It was extremely delicious!
I want to stock up on them in my freezer.
I need to buy a bigger freezer!!!

Translated from Japanese: It was delicious. Although these kind of sausages are usually very salty, these were just right.
