The Secreto is a cut of meat that is hidden on the side of the famous Iberian pig’s neck, between the shoulder blade and the loin. It’s a thin cut, with a distinct intramuscular marbling of fat, and is the best cut on the Iberico pig—considered a delicacy in Spain! It’s the juiciest, most tender cut, with all the buttery, nutty goodness of authentic Iberico.
The Iberico Secreto by Estrella de Castilla is best prepared in the simplest of ways. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper on both sides, and quickly sear over a griddle. That’s it! Slice into thin pieces before serving. Enjoy with a glass of Rioja or Ribera del Duoro.
Guijuelo is found at the foot of the “Sierra de Gredos,” and is the land of Iberian tradition. Estrella de Castilla is the heir to this tradition, continuing on the time-loved custom of quality Iberico ham. Guijuelo is surrounded by cold winds, more than 1000 meters above sea level. It has the perfect climate to raise Iberian pigs, surrounded by ancient oak and cork trees, producing the best acorns, the pigs’ staple diet. The incredible quality of their acorns is one of the secrets to their special and unique curing processes.
