US SRF Frozen Kurobuta Pork Collar
Pork collar is one of the great, yet-to-be-discovered-by-the-masses kind of cut, and one of my favorites. It’s perfect for grilling, roasting, braising, and grinding. Flavorful marbling throughout this collar makes it perfect to make cantonese style barbecue pork (char siu).
The SRF kurobuta pork is lean, with small fine streaks of marbling that makes each cut sweet, juicy and tender. Unlike the traditional white pork that tends to be bland and dry, American kurobuta pork is otherwise darker in color, and intensely flavorful. In fact, the Wall Street Journal has dubbed it “The Other Red Meat”. While other cross-breeds are available, SRF is one of the few brands offering 100% purebred Berkshire breed pork, ensuring a consistently exquisite eating experience. Kurobuta pork is celebrated in Japan for many reasons, especially its marbling which is an attribute which the Japanese value greatly. Moreover taste tests comparing American kurobuta pork (Berkshire) to other common pork varieties consistently show that consumers prefer kurobuta.
