100% Kurobuta/Berkshire Pork
Physical Description: Each pack comes with an approximately 5-6 lbs Kurobuta Pork Bone-In Rib Roast.
Nutritional Information: A Source of Key Nutrients: Pork is an excellent source of protein and provides several important vitamins and minerals. A 3-ounce serving of pork is an “excellent” source of thiamin, selenium, protein, niacin, vitamin B-6 and phosphorus, and a good source of zinc, riboflavin and potassium. Heart-Healthy: Pork is naturally low in sodium and an “excellent” source of potassium – two nutrients that, together, can help regulate blood pressure.
Cooking: Pork rib roast is also referred to as rack of pork (it also may be labeled center-cut pork loin). The cut comes from the rib area of the loin, so it contains a bit more fat which makes it very flavorful. The pork rib roast/rack of pork is the pork equivalent of a standing beef rib roast or a rack of lamb. This cut makes a show-stopping centerpiece for an elegant dinner. Before roasting or barbecuing the pork rib roast, it should be “frenched.” Simply cut the meat away from the end of each rib, so that part of each bone is exposed.
Farming Practices: Our Kurobuta Berkshire pigs are raised humanely on small family operated farms. They are never administered hormones or antibiotics. The farmers raise our animals on open pastures and make sure the each pig receives a healthy amount of grain feed every day. These animals are traditionally raised in small herds so they can be given the best care.
