Kurobuta (Berkshire) Pork
Kurobuta Pork Bellies
4 Bellies (approximately 41 lbs.)
Though its popularity in America waned in the last few decades, pork belly meat is returning to popularity because of its tremendous succulence when braised or slow roasted.
Kurobuta pork bellies (aka Berkshire pork bellies) are from a rare variety of pig that has long been bred in England and Japan for flavor and more marbled meat. The result is some of the finest pork in the world, sometimes referred to as "The Kobe Beef of Pork."
These bellies are sold with the skin off.
