Pork belly

Pork belly is a “striped” cut, in which lean meat alternates with fat in a perfect balance of different flavors and textures. It is obtained from the pig’s side and it has such an intense, rich and tasty flavor it could also come perfectly with no seasoning.

Description

In the pork belly, the lean and the fat are more or less equivalent in weight. The fat is super tasty and so tender it melts in cooking. The lean meat is firm and compact, in variable proportion depending on the season of the butchery: in winter, our pigs have more fat to protect from cold. 

The pork belly is an old cut, ever-present in Tuscan barbecues worthy of their names. The Grigio del Casentino pork belly, though, is excellent for any double-cooking or fusion recipes, because low temperatures maintain all the fat and its tastiness.

Why is our fresh meat so special?

Our fresh meat is:

  • Tasty and healthy. Our meat has an incomparable taste because our pigs feed on nature
  • Ethical and sustainable. Our animals are free to move in their natural habitat; we only slaughter pigs that are at least 14-month-old and we use all of their meat. 
  • Perfectly balanced. Lean meat and fat are in the right proportion: the meat is healthy and scrumptious
  • Pure and simple. With a raw material such as this, you don’t need anything else. Our fresh meat does not require long cooking or elaborate recipes, since it is just perfect already.
