|Iberico Pork Plumas: 1Kg / 2.2lbs|
Iberico Pork Plumas are for anyone who loves a rich, succulent meat that melts in your mouth straight from the BBQ or grill pan. The Iberian Pata Negra pig carries an extreme marbling of fat running through the musculature, which yields a darker meat than the more common breeds, with a deeper more pronounced flavour that elevates pork dishes to new heights. Iberico has earned a reputation as the “Wagyu of Pork.”
Iberico Pork Plumas or “feathers” in Spanish are cut from just behind the neck and are unbelievably tender. Iberico Pork contains a high content of oleic acids (monounsaturated fatty acids.) Oleic acids have been proven to lower “bad cholesterol” and raise “good cholesterol” in the blood. In fact, Iberico Pork fat contains more than 55% oleic acid—only olive oil has a higher concentration!
These Iberico Pork Plumas are perfect for a family celebration or for getting together with friends. You can put them on the BBQ or fry them up in a smoking hot grill pan, either way you’ll be sure to delight everyone around the table with these unique and distinctly tender Iberico Pork Plumas.

Our Iberico Pork is supplied by Agroibericos DeRaza, the leading company in the trade of fresh and cured Iberian meat in Spain.
Founded in 1996 by Regino Diaz Del Rio, and certified under the strictest quality standards, DeRaza currently has 65 estates for raising Iberian pigs, the descendants of the orginal Iberian Pig, and Sus mediterranceus.
These pigs wander estates that are abundant in cork and holm oaks and feed naturally on acorns, which give the finished pork a nutty, earthy taste and aroma. DeRaza believes in the wisdom of the natural world, and raises these Iberian Pata Negra pigs in the way nature intended.
Bex and Ras like to give these Plumas a quick marinade in a traditional BBQ sauce along with a bit of garlic, thyme, soy sauce and a squeeze of lemon. Ras recommends a lemon yogurt dipping sauce to compliment the Plumas.
Iberico Pork can hold up with a light red wine of your choice, a Spanish Rioja is a natural winner. If you prefer white, an Alsatian Riesling with its mineral-laden Old World character will be an easy pleaser.
