This is the cut of meat that our butcher usually saves for himself.
Cut from legendary Spanish Iberico Pork, each belly is rich and meaty with a buttery, nutty flavor and a silky, tender texture.
Highly marbled, each cut comes with a near-perfect 50-50 ratio of muscle to fat. The high muscle content ensures that there's meat in every serving. Meanwhile, the extra fat produces exceptional marbling causing pork to melt in your mouth.
As the most versatile cut, the belly is the shortest and most potent path to adding umami to any dish. Cook low-and-slow for a stunning solo entreé. Smoke it, roast it or braise it as part of a dish. Make your own bacon and dress anything.
