100 g. Acorn Fed Lomito de Bellota- Pata Negra
Lomito, translates to ‘tenderloin’ in Spanish and it is the most succulent part of the Iberian pig- it should not be confused with the Lomo which is a tougher bit of meat from below the animals’ ribs. This prime cut can be located between the shoulder blades where the animal is most muscular and lean- to eat it is unbelievably soft and delicate. There is only a very small amount of fat that marbles this meat. The Lomito has a smaller fat content than any other Pata Negra meat. Unlike, the most well known Spanish cured meat, Chorizo, the Lomito is not chopped and mixed with other ingredients but only lightly seasoned with paprika and marinated in salt, pepper, lemon, garlic, oregano and a little olive oil so that the true beauty of the meat can be appreciated.
In Spain, this cut is considered one of the very best and it has been produced from the very best of the Iberian pigs. The acorn fed black label Iberico De Bellota often referred to as Pata Negra. This cut is, for many, even more valued than Jamon Iberico De Bellota and is referred to as the ‘Noble’ cut. The Lomito is hard to Champion!
100 g. Acorn Fed Lomo de Bellota- Pata Negra
The Lomo, like the Lomito, is a cured cut from the Iberian black pig’s tenderloin. The Lomo is from just under the pig’s ribs. It is a beautifully delicate and flavoursome meat that is practically untouched in its preparation so that the full succulent flavour of the pork can shine through. This Lomo has been sourced from the Acorn Fed Black Iberian Pig, the same animal as the ‘Pata Negra Jamon’. It is the finest of all breeds when producing cured meats and this can be identified by the marbling of fat which isn’t present in lesser quality Lomo. Unlike, the most well know Spanish cured meat, Chorizo, the Lomo is not chopped and mixed with other ingredients but only lightly seasoned with paprika and sometimes marinated in salt, pepper, lemon, garlic, oregano and a little olive oil so that the true beauty of the meat can be appreciated.
100 g. Acorn Fed Salchichon de Bellota- Pata Negra
