Iberico pork is pork that comes from the Black Iberian Pig, which is native to Portugal and parts of Spain. The pig’s diet, which is rich in acorns, has an impact on the flavour and texture of the meat. Iberico pork is deliciously nutty in flavour, and offers a unique twist to traditional pork cuts. Often described as the 'Wagyu of Pork' due to its unparalleled marbling, the Iberico pork has a buttery mouthfeel and is incredibly tender and juicy.
Iberico Presa is a fantastic cut of pork, known for its tenderness and rich flavour. To preserve the natural flavours, it’s best to cook Iberico Presa medium-rare instead of well done. Simply season your pork with salt and pepper, and seal in the juices with a hot frying pan for 5 minutes on each side. Once your pork has a golden crust, transfer to a preheated oven at 180ºc for ten minutes. Find out more about cooking Iberico Presa in our recipe blog.
Iberico pork is a well-marbled meat that results in a tender and succulent meat, allowing for rich flavours that need minimal seasoning. Our chefs usually stick with a simple salt and pepper seasoning on the meat, but you could also experiment with other flavours such as thyme or paprika.
If you want to get experimental, try making your own Iberico pork marinade paste by blending together garlic, cumin, thyme leaves, smoked paprika, mustard, fennel, and brown sugar. This can be rubbed into your Iberico pork chops and left to infuse with the meat overnight. Find out how our chefs use this marinade on Iberico pork in our food blog.
