These thick, hearty chops cook up juicy and tender, thanks to fat that bastes them from the outside and within. Called chuletero in Spain, the bone-in loin and rib chops have the deep red coloring and delicate marbling unique to Iberico de bellota hogs, a heritage breed descended from the country's wild boars. Fattened on bellotas (acorns), this pork has a nutty sweetness that perfectly balances its robust, meaty flavor. Produced by Fermin, renowned for traditional Iberico de bellota since 1956. 100% Iberico de bellotahogs, raised on government-protected meadows in Spain where they forage for wild herbs and bellotas (acorns). Iberico de bellota hogs are harvested in small numbers each year, making quantities limited. Descended from wild boars, these hogs produce meat that is deep red, nicely marbled and very flavorful. Their breed and diet create pork that is high in monounsaturated fat. Hormone-, antibiotic- and GMO-free. Great for pan roasting or grilling. Best served rare or medium-rare. Set of four chops (2 rib chops and 2 loin chops), each 8 oz. and 1 1/4" thick. Shipped frozen.
