Pork Belly Boneless Skinless:
Historically the pork belly has always been an affordable roasting dish & is found on many menus in various recipes. We have created this one for those recipes that require no bone or rind to save you the time & money in preparation & waste.
The way we make these belly pieces are; we take a thick whole belly & remove the piano bones (rib bones) individually, leaving the meaty rib fingers on top, then the pork belly is turned over & the outer rind along with some of the hard fat is removed on a special machine. The fat underneath that remains is a white soft fat that gives the pork belly extra flavour & moisture. As they say “fat is flavour”.
The texture of pork belly is slightly course & has good intramuscular fat running through it that will render down during your cook. The colour of the meat is a light pink, indicating quality young pork that has been well fed & processed properly to get perfect pork. This will give an easy to chew meat that is easily digested, whilst not being overwhelmed by the fat flavour.
Pork belly that is prepared like this is ideal to be cut in different ways; you can slice into thin bacon like rashers for the pan, cut into thick steaks for cooking under the grill, stuff & tie up the whole piece for roasting or place on the BBQ & get the smokey flavour into the piece. These are just a few ways that you can use this pork belly.
If you really love pork belly candy bites… then make the delicious PBBE Pork Belly Burnt Ends), these are simply to die for, see the recipes at the bottom of the text.
Good quality meat is a great source of vitamins, minerals & protein. Pork is no exception to this & because our pork, as we mentioned earlier, has a good meat to fat ratio, you will still get a nutritious meal from our pork belly even though it is one of the fattier parts of the animal. We make sure that all our meats are packed correctly to ensure that you get all the benefits of these when opened at home.
Our expert butchers prepare & pack our pork in clean, temperature-controlled cutting rooms to make sure that we produce the freshest, most hygienic meat possible. The low temperatures help to keep the natural bacteria found in meat from reproducing to give the meat its natural taste. We pack all our cuts within a few minutes of production into vacuum-sealed clear recyclable pouches.
The clear pouches protect the meat from becoming freezer burnt & also when being delivered to your door. The vacuum process sucks all the natural moisture of the meat back into it whilst gently holding the shape of the meat. Freezing immediately after this will keep the pork belly in perfect condition until you open at home.
The pouches will protect the pork belly when you are bringing it up to room temperature before your cook because it won’t dry out.
By packing them this way makes them easy to freeze & store. The recyclable clear pouches are one way we can reduce our carbon footprint by our online customers recycling responsibly at home. Reducing our use of plastic to lower our carbon footprint for a greener future is something we are always trying to do.
The process from farm to fork is designed to maximise value for money & minimise waste, with welfare & the environment top of the list. All our production facilities are BRC Approved & we are always using local herds to support local farmers.
We are very selective on our preferred choice of pork because it suits our cuts to give better results in cooking. There are many breeds of pigs in the world, each with different characteristics, some large fatty ones, to small very lean types. Our choice of pig is the Pietrain Pig because it is a low cholesterol breed that has fantastic meat to fat ratio that has excellent flavour with guaranteed results in the kitchen.
Having access to a large volume of a good grade, perfect sized pork sides to choose from on a daily basis enables us to create the consistent “Restaurant Quality” pork cuts that people have come to expect from the Sherwood brand. We have a daily delivery of pigs to the production facilities from long-standing local countryside farms in Belgium & Northern France.
Our select breed of pigs gets their name Pietrain from the small village of “Pietrain” in the Wallonia region of Belgium where they mainly originated from.
