Segovian Suckling Pig Half Carcass

Segovian Suckling Pigs are reared very specifically with the mothers having a special feed, being a specific breed of Pig and the Suckling Pigs being exclusively milk-fed. They are normally no older than three weeks.

The milk feed means the meat is succulent, tender and paler in colour than that of older pigs. When cooked the meat falls off the bone, oozing with delicious flavour. This cut of Segovian Suckling Pig looks so impressive served at a dinner party, with loads of crackling, it is super fun to eat.

For delicious crunchy crackling ensure the meat is dry and covered liberally with salt and a little vegetable oil. Put on a rack in a deep baking tray and cook at 220 for 30 to 40 minutes or until the skin has gone a deep rich golden brown. Reduce the heat to 160 and continue cooking for another 45 minutes to allow all the delicious fat to baste the meat underneath. We love to keep to the Spanish theme by serving it with a butter bean stew and some warm crusty bread, to mop up the juices from the meat and the stew all at the same time.

Cooking Tips For Steaks

- For frozen steaks, thaw overnight in the fridge.
- Bring the steak to room temperature 20 minutes before cooking
- Pat dry
- Season the steak generously with table salt and a little olive oil (or other high-heat cooking oils). This helps form that amazing crust we all know and love about great steaks.
- Get your skillet smoking hot before putting the steak in.
- Cook the steak on either side for 2-4 minutes or until the meat is forming a stunning golden crust to it.
- Half way through cooking, we like basting it with butter and a few branches of fresh thym.
- Remove from the heat and let it rest for 5-10 minutes under aluminum foil as it will allow juices to reabsorb into the meat and the fibres to relax.

  • SPAIN

The Iberian Peninsula of Spain, is a land of rich history and stunning natural beauty. Here, amidst rolling hills, ancient forests, and sun-drenched plains, lies the home of the renowned Iberico Pork. In the extensive oak forests, known as “dehesas”, the Pata Negra pigs are allowed to roam freely, feasting on acorns and other natural vegetation, which contributes to the unique flavour and marbling of the meat.
