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)

Description

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!

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. The pigs are a slow and naturally grown British Camborough breed. They are fed a large variety of feed mixes that contain all kinds of grains, corn, soybeans, and other vegetables and farm produce (pigs can’t survive only on grass, so there won't be grass-fed pork any time soon). Newborn stay in a shelter together with their mother until they learn how to take care of themselves. No tail clipping of piglets, no gestation crates for sows. No factory farming. They receive all the respect, love and care. See for yourself, all images and videos are real.
