Iberico Pork is commonly called the “the wagyu” of pork because of its noticeable high marbling. This due to the breed of the pork (Iberian) and how they are raised. We source these pork chops from
To be called "Jamon Iberico" it must be from black iberian pigs and raised in Portugal or Spain. Farm Vera Vieja which is located in Retamal de Llerena (Badajoz, Spain). This farm stretches over a vast and rich pasture which provides the highest quality acorns, grass and excellent grazing fields, which is where these pigs are raised eating acorns and grass!
This in particular is a double pork rib chop, which is part of the loin muscle and comes from the front of the animal. This is the most premium part of the ribs.
