Secreto Iberico - Creamy Award Winning Iberian Pork Flap -  £28.50Kg / Vacuum packed Frozen (pack contains 1 piece)

Secreto Iberico

Secreto Iberico is a part of the top extreme of the loin's top. In the traditional quartering of meat it is united to the loin's fat or 'hoja de tocino'. Sizzle this thin cut on the grill and the fat will immediately start to melt away, bathing the pork in lovely acorn flavoured juiciness. Iberico pork is famed for its beautiful marbling and no other cut displays this more deliciously than the secreto. While it comes from the shoulder area, it has a lot of similarities to a tender skirt steak.

Indigenous black Iberico pigs wander the dehesa forests of southwest Spain feeding on herbs, grasses and most importantly, acorns. Not only are they the happiest pigs on earth, but this diet adds wonderful flavour to the pork. And all that exercise fosters the marbling that makes Iberico so special. The acorn and herb flavored pork is high in mono-unsaturated fats that melt at low temperatures, and is more healthy than the fat from normal pork.

The secreto has so much marbling it has a bit of a bacon-like flavor, but much more complex because of the grasses, herbs and acorns on which the animals are grazed. The secreto cut is a small, thin cut that is hard to locate on the pigs, hence the name. It should be grilled or cooked in a cast iron skillet at medium high heat.

THERMAL BOX ADDED TO YOUR CART AT CHECKOUT

DELIVERY OF CHILLED FOOD

All our meat cuts are stored in chilled fridge and leave our warehouse between 0º to 5ºC.

We can only deliver chilled products to destinations where a Next ­Day service is available.

For customers outside mainland UK where we cannot offer next-day delivery, we do not recommend that you order Chilled or Frozen Produce.  Please contact us to arrange an alternative solution whenever available.

All our beef cuts are delivered in a Thermal Box for Chilled/Frozen Produce, which maintains the product in a temperature-controlled atmosphere. This system has been designed specifically for the distribution by post of temperature sensitive goods. Through the use of cooling elements, we can ensure that all Chilled/Frozen products maintain a temperature between 2º to 8º C over the period of 24 hours with an average outside temperature of 20º C. The thermal box will be added to your beef order at the checkout.

What will happen if there is nobody available to accept delivery?

You must be available to receive your order on the first attempt. Although we will instruct the courier to leave the package with a NEIGHBOUR or in a SAFE PLACE whenever possible, we cannot guarantee that this will happen and cannot take responsibility for spoiled goods where you have not been in to accept the delivery. - Please do not reject your box for any reason.  Frozen goods that are not delivered have to be thrown away.  If you detect any damage or leakage, please still accept the box, then inspect the contents and contact us if necessary.  A small amount of liquid formation is normal as the ice begins to thaw. If there is genuine damage, we will not ignore your claim just because you did not reject the delivery.
