Iberico Pork comes from the distinctive Black Iberian Pig, native to Portugal and Spain. Their diet of acorns and elements of the natural forests in these areas impacts the meat directly, giving it a nutty, evocative flavour.
The game changer for the Iberico pork meat is the fat, the same fat found in olive oil, that is said to reduce cholesterol. When you eat Iberico pork, the marbling of fat makes it super tasty and delicious. The meat is more flavourful, more juicy, and very distinctive. If you’re looking to broaden your culinary horizons with a new meat to try, Iberico pork is a great way to go.
