Product Information


Meaty, succulent & thick-cut, double-cut Kurobuta rib chops make a bold statement on the plate. Each chop is cut two-ribs thick.

Kurobuta Pork is an internationally famous breed of pork from England (and later Japan) known for its intense marbling and tenderness. Also known as Berkshire Pork, its texture is supple and juicy. Its flavor has richness and depth.

Not all Kurobuta pork on the market is bred from 100% Berkshire hogs, potentially diluting its superior eating characteristics. This pork has 100% Berkshire breed verified genetics and is raised on family farms.


Store Kurobuta rib chops in your freezer until you need them, then thaw as many chops as you want to cook.

Thawing Tips


Kurobuta double-rib chops are incredibly impressive on the plate because of their thick, tall profile.  However, they can also be sliced into single-rib chops for faster cooking & a smaller serving size.  The chine bone has been removed, so all you have to do is slice between the bones.

Kurobuta pork is reliably more moist than conventional pork, but you can infuse it with extra flavor and even more moisture by brining it prior to cooking.

How to Brine Meat

Because these chops are so thick, the easiest ways to cook them through to your preferred doneness are either searing, then roasting or cooking sous vide & then searing to finish.

Recommended Internal Temp: 145°
