Sliced Iberico Pork Secreto
Iberico Pork Secreto is one of Spain’s best-kept secrets. A fantastically tender and highly prized steak hidden behind the shoulder and under the back fat, the secreto has a long grain with stripes from the dense marbling found in this cut. It has the distinctively rich and nutty flavour of the Iberian acorn-fed pigs. It is a wide, flat piece of meat, ideal for flash frying and serving over vibrant fresh salads, or warming bowls of risotto. The stripes of marbling in this cut turn a gorgeous golden brown, adding colour, texture and an abundance of flavour to any meal.
Season with salt and a little oil. Heat a griddle pan or frying pan and fry off for a couple of minutes on each side, or until a rich golden brown colour appears. Let the steaks rest for 4 minutes. You will notice the steaks may have puffed up - this is where all the delicious fat has melted and is adding flavour into the meat. Slice, across the grain, and serve straight away. Serve alongside warm crusty bread, a salad of artichoke, olives, capers and onions with a zesty dressing covering.
