Pork Collar Shabu Shabu Kurobuta Fullblood Berkshire - 500g
Expertly sliced at 2mm for that melt in your mouth experience, these beautifully marbled slices of pork come from the neck, revered by butchers for its natural marbling and deeper flavour.
Kurobuta Pork is one of the most highly prized pork products available in this country. It comes from the ancient breed of pig known as Black Berkshire, one of the oldest breeds known to exist. Kurobuta Pork is raised in the mild climate of Broken Head NSW (near to Byron Bay), where the pigs have a low stress lifestyle.
The pigs are raised in eco-pens and are fed a blend of wholesome wheat, barley, sorghum, and macadamia nut. Pink hued and heavily marbled, this Pork has a sweet, rich flavour. Kurobuta Pork is incredibly tender and juicy, making this distinct pork variety worthy of its prestigious reputation.
This cut has been prepared for Shabu Shabu & Sukiyaki which is a Japanese hot pot dish cooked like a soup with sliced meat and vegetables.
Fresh, raw ingredients are assembled at the table, then submerged briefly in broth by each diner. Cook the thin Kurobuta Pork slices individually rather than all at once, enjoying it over the course of the meal much like a fondue.
After removing the pork from the pot, dip into your chosen sauce. The onomatopoeic name refers to the ‘swish, swish’ sound the meat makes as it is swished around in the broth with chopsticks.
This product has been packaged using Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP). MAP involves controlling or modifying the atmosphere surrounding a product within a package to provide optimal conditions for increasing shelf life and reducing oxidation and spoilage of perishable foods.
During this process, a harmless gas is used to displace ambient oxygen. This is done to decrease the amount of oxygen inside the package, which will in turn decrease the rate of spoilage, as oxygen is one of the top killers of freshness.
