Boneless Pork Loin:
Our expert butchers have taken a full loin pork & carefully removed all the bones, then cut off the Rump before using a special machine to take off the rind & any hard-fat underneath. There is a covering of pure white fat on one side of the piece that has been left to help keep the meat naturally moist & to add to the flavour.
The Boneless Pork Loin pieces are approximately 1.8 kilos each & 15 cm long that will make 12 pork steaks around 150 grams each, or you can make a roast that will feed 9 people 200 grams of delicious sliced juicy pork loin. The fat on the back can be trimmed off after cooking to reduce your fat intake for a healthier meal option. When roasting you can score the fat to allow the seasoning to penetrate the meat & add to the flavour whilst letting more direct heat into the top of the piece.
Boneless pork loin is the same as sirloin of beef, the texture of the meat is tender n’ juicy, it is leaner than the ribeye as it doesn’t have the extra layer of fat running through it. Back bacon uses the loin of pork with some extra belly left on to create the familiar rashers that are like thin steak slices. The boneless pork loin becomes very tender when slow-cooked for hours, it will pull apart very easily when teased with a fork.
The colour of the pork is a light pink & naturally juicy, this will turn a lighter colour when cooked without any seasoning, the juices will run clear. The light colour indicates a good PH balance in the meat which is due to the relaxed humane process from farm to the cutting of the meat because you don’t want any discolouring or bruising to ruin your loin.
All our pork is produced in clean, temperature-controlled cutting rooms that have filtered air to keep the hygiene levels to an optimum level. The low temperatures help to keep the meat from losing its natural juices, this makes for a juicier piece of pork, & also makes for a more natural flavour when opening at home. The hygiene standards are there to make our products safe & to produce a fresher product with a longer shelf life.
All our pork is cut & packed within a few minutes to produce the freshest products possible, once cut & packed it is then frozen to -25, this will stay in this condition until it is thawed for cooking. The fast process is the best way to create food that will last & travel as we ship all our products frozen.
Boneless pork loin is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals & protein, & even though we leave the protective cover of fat on the outside, this is easily removed to leave the tender lean eye of the loin. Many slimming recipes will recommend lean pork, chicken or beef as these are great sources of energy & low in fat, cutting pork steaks & trimming the fat after cooking is a simple effective way of making tasty food that is healthy.
When we pack our boneless pork loin pieces, we vacuum them into clear recyclable pouches that will hold the shape of the meat, & will suck the juices into the loin meat that will preserve it perfectly. The loin is more of a wholesale cut of pork, but we have made these into more convenient sized pieces for the home that give great value for money because of the amount of meat on it for the price.
The pouches are now thinner & stronger to help reduce the use of plastic for our packaging, & with our customers at home or in restaurants recycling responsibly, this is helping to lower our carbon footprint. We are always looking for more affordable biodegradable packaging for a greener future, but we have to put safety & hygiene first. The current packaging keeps your meat clean & safe.
Our choice of pork is something we have carefully considered, as we find this makes exactly what our customers need for specification, flavour & taste.
