Experience the unsurpassed flavor and quality of Oregon Meat Co.'s pork back fat, an often overlooked but indispensable ingredient in culinary creations. Sourced from our pasture-raised pigs, this cut adds depth and richness to a variety of dishes, offering an unmatched level of gastronomic indulgence.
Pork back fat, extracted from the dorsal area of the pig, is renowned for its perfect balance of meat and fat. This allows it to render beautifully, infusing dishes with a sublime, natural pork flavor that is both intense and satisfying. With each package averaging around 5 lbs, you'll have plenty to experiment with in your kitchen.
At Oregon Meat Co., we are proud of our commitment to ethical and sustainable farming. Our pigs enjoy a life grazing on lush Oregonian pastures and are fed locally grown, freshly milled food free from GMOs, corn, and soy. This natural, conscientious approach to farming doesn't just benefit the environment – it ensures that our pork back fat is of the highest quality, delivering superior taste and texture in every bite.
Use it to create luscious sausages, where the fat enhances the meat's juiciness and flavor. Render it down for a superb cooking fat that adds a distinctive richness to fried or sautéed dishes. Or, cure it to make traditional Italian lardo, an exquisite charcuterie item that's perfect on crusty bread or as a flavorful pizza topping.
Alongside its gastronomic benefits, pork back fat is also nutritionally valuable. It's a source of healthy monounsaturated fats, which can help to improve cholesterol levels. Plus, it provides vitamin B1 and a range of minerals, including selenium and zinc, which contribute to overall health and well-being.
