Kurobuta Pork Belly

This very special pork belly is from Snake River Farms of Idaho, which uses locally sourced Berkshire hogs, a heritage breed the Japanese call kurobuta, meaning "black hog." Snake River is committed to sustainability and provides a hormone-free, natural diet for its hogs, yielding pork belly that is deep in color, streaked with fine marbling and exceptionally sweet, juicy and tender. 5-lb. full belly (serves 13-20). Shipped frozen. Made in USA.

not sure what anyone else is expecting here? Its pork belly minus the skin. I run a restaurant for a living and we use snake river products. It should be noted this is side belly. It still makes a fantastic confit.
Cooked sous vide its even better.
Get some pickled mustard seed and place it on a salad arugula salad.
Pros: Quality, Decadent, Flavor, pork belly

Do not be tempted to purchase this. I grew up on pork belly, before it became fashionable, so know how to prepare and cook it properly. This is an inferior product and is not as shown in the photo. It should have been a nice layer of fat with a nice layer of meat, another layer of fat, more meat. What I received was two inches of fat with a thin layer of meat. Maybe I received inferior product and they are sending the good stuff out to the restaurants. So disappointed.
Cons: Disappointing

hard to make up my mind
I respect everyones comment, but when there is only one comment to a product it is hard to know if that is the case or did they just feel slitted in some manor. I am thinking about buying this product but the review is setting me off as 75 out of 79 found this comment helpful and with one comment tells me only one sale in 79. I just wish there were more comment from buyers on this product.
