100% Pasture Raised New Mexican Pork
Physical Description: Each pack comes with one piece, approximately 16-18 oz (1-1.125 lbs) of heritage pork short ribs. These are not your typical short ribs. When you purchase our high quality pork, you will be getting the most meat we have ever seen on short ribs! They look like giant pork rib chops!
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:These can be eaten Flintstones style with the bone still attached. The meat can also be removed from the bone and used on nachos, enchiladas, tacos, BBQ sandwiches, mac and cheese… it’s great with pretty much anything. We have cooked these with just water and salt and had them turn out delicious. Bulow likes to grill them first and then slow cook them in the crockpot covered in home made BBQ sauce.
Farming Practices: Our pigs are raised on a small farm on the edge of the Rio Grande river in Northern New Mexico. Each animal has approximately a half acre of land where they are free-range and have daily human interaction (which includes regular treats such as apples). USDA Certified, grain fed, their diet has consisted mainly of crude protein, crude fiber, and plant fiber. All of our pigs are hormone free and have been raised in a stress free environment. We are excited to deliver this high quality meat straight to your door.
