New Kurobuta Cuts Added to Our Line of This Heritage Pork

Heritage breeds are specially raised and heralded for their intensely flavorful meat and beautiful marbling of fat that melts into the meat when cooked. In the realm of haute Japanese proteins, Wagyu beef, Jidori chicken, and Kurobuta pork reign supreme. But you don’t have to travel to the Far East to experience some of the best pork in the world. Kurobuta, or “black hog” pork, comes from the famed Berkshire pig. Hence, Berkshire and Kurobuta are interchangeable terms. 

Ever had a leathery, dry pork chop or tenderloin where you don't have enough saliva to swallow? The heritage breeds have maintained the flavorful fat that keeps the meat juicy and tender, resulting in a more premium product and succulent bite.

Kurobuta pork has more consistent marbling integrated throughout allowing the cut to cook evenly and quickly, while remaining juicy, tender, and most importantly—full of flavor. We often hear after someone tries it for the first time that it's the best pork they’ve ever had. 

For years, we’ve had the Kurobuta Pork Chop in our service case and it has been a great addition to our already fantastic selection. We recently decided to add more variety in cuts of this Berkshire breed to sell, so if you love the Kurobuta Pork Chop, you're in for a treat! Look for the Kurobuta Coppa Roast, which makes fantastic pulled pork, and you’ve gotta try the Kurobuta Coppa Steak and Kurobuta Short Ribs, too. Winter braising has never been so good. You’ll also want to take note of our new Berkshire Ground Pork, Berkshire Bacon, and Berkshire Hot Dogs as additional ways to tap into the Kurobuta craze.
