Iberico Pork Bellies
4 bellies (approximately 20 lbs.)
Iberico pork belly (aka Panceta) is a rich, succulent cut with flavorful ribbons of fat & meat. This is the same cut bacon is made from, but it is also delicious slow-roasted or braised until tender. These bellies are sold with the skin on. Iberico pork is renowned for its significant amount of marbling. Expect these bellies to have a higher ratio of fat-to-meat than conventional pork bellies.
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.
