Iberico Pork Secretos
20 Secretos (Approx. 19lbs Total)
The secreto is a small, hidden (“secret”) boneless cut from behind the shoulder. Tender, well-marbled & delicious, this is a great cut for quick cooking applications like searing or grilling. It offers great flavor even when simply served seasoned with salt & pepper.
Even though it's cut from an entirely different part of the animal, secreto is sometimes referred to as “skirt steak” in the US, because it’s cooked similarly.
Iberico pork is a Spanish culinary treasure, amongst the finest pork in the world. While iberico is best known for the famous slow-aged hams, the other cuts are succulent, moist & delicious. This iberico pork is raised free range on traditional Spanish pastures known as dehesas. It’s fed a natural diet of grain, corn, wheat, grass & forage. No added growth hormones or sub-therapeutic antibiotics are ever used.
Iberico pork raised in this way is considered “Campo Iberian Pork” under Spanish law, a term which requires that the animals are raised in the open air on an all-natural cereal-based diet.
* Minimally Processed, No Chemical Ingredients
Keep iberico pork secretos frozen until you need them, then thaw before cooking.
