Artisan/History/Story

Kurobuta” means “black pig” in Japanese. This heritage breed “pedigree pig” is much slower growing than your supermarket pig which is commercially farmed for quick time to market--NOT flavor. This is certified 100% pure Berkshire. The Kurobuta (or Berkshire) pig is a unique pig which has ancestry from the British Isles and Asia and is being carefully preserved by caring farmers here domestically. The farmers take extraordinary care in assuring these pedigree pigs a healthy and happy environment--of course free of hormones or antibiotics.

How to Prep/Store

These lean Berkshire pork tenderloins--two per pack--require very little trimming or 'handling." If not cooking a whole tenderloin for your dinner, wrap the unused portion in parchment paper then tightly wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to three days. If need be, freeze for later use. We recommend using a vacuum sealer with good quality freezer bags to protect the meat.

Recipe Ideas

This well-marbled and tender pork tenderloin requires little adornment and certainly does not require marinating. Season gently, give a quick sear in a hot skillet. Then roast to medium and let the true pork flavor shine! Also perfect for the grill. Alternatively, carve up into "cutlets' one-inch thick or your preference for the ultimate easy weeknight dinner. Again, season lightly, sear and cook each cutlet to medium/medium well. Click for a great option for 'sliders' fro your next party.
