Bursting with rich complex flavors, our boneless Berkshire pork belly from Berkridge is the stuff dreams are made of. Boasting three distinct layers of texture, pork belly has a layer of meat, that when cooked low and slow, develops a delicious chew, the layer of fat becomes beautifully silky and luxurious while the exterior skin becomes wonderfully crackly and crunchy. These contrasting layers, when combined with the rich taste of pork belly, make for a truly mesmerizing eating experience.
Sourced from the rolling hills of Northwest Iowa, our boneless Berkshire pork belly comes from Berkridge sustainable farms. Raised on a high-quality diet of soy and corn, to achieve uniform flavor and marbling, our Berkshire pork boasts a more robust flavor profile than generic pork and an unprecedented amount of marbling, earning it the reputation as being ‘the Wagyu of pork.’ Allowed to grow without the use of steroids or growth hormones, our Berkshire pigs require more time to reach maturity, but they are well worth the wait!
Treasured for their rich flavor and decadent layer of fat, pork belly was traditionally reserved for slicing into bacon, but its amazing characteristics have earned it a cult following and widened its culinary scope. Now a favorite cut for barbecue masters and Michelin starred restaurants, pork belly has become a favorite around the globe. Each of our succulent pork bellies weighs in at a walloping 9-pounds. The perfect addition to almost any recipe, pork belly adds a rich, savory flavor to anything from stews to pasta and should be enjoyed often and with abandon. Buy two and keep one on hand in the freezer for moments of emergency.
