TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

A darkly colored pork, this secret cut is so incredibly tender and shows off that very distinct pata negra taste, mild and nutty. Thinly portioned, it’s a highly prized cut from the shoulder area of the Iberian pig. It’s striped with a marbling of fat, which we know is what gives Iberico pork it’s excellent juicy and rich texture.

PREPARATIONS AND PAIRINGS

The fat in Iberico pigs is the mono-saturated kind, aka the “good fat.” Much like olive oil, it’s high in oleic acid; in fact, Iberian pork is sometimes called olive oil meat. It’s juicy and flavorful all on its own, and truly needs little to no additional dramatics when preparing.

  • Heat your pan. Add a little bit of oil, and cook on a griddle or frying pan.
  • Cook for a couple of minutes, until it shows a rich, golden-brown color.
  • Remove, and let the steaks rest for around four minutes. It will puff up a bit; this is that beautiful fat melted, and saturating it with flavor.
  • Season with pepper and salt, Maldon Sea Salt being a good option.
  • Slice across the grain
  • Serve immediately, with some warm bread and a light salad with zesty dressing

Pair with this with a Villard Expression Reserve Pinot Noir.

A STORIED HISTORY

La Prudencia is the brainchild of Don Prudencio Benito, who set up the renowned company in 1910, in Villacastín, in Segovia, Spain. Within the Campo Azálvaro highlands, northwest of the Guadarrama Mountains, La Prudencia is found in the region historically acknowledged for centuries to be an area known for the production of pork products of high quality.

Continuing the region’s age-old tradition of artisan products, La Prudencia has perfected the integration of traditional preparation and modern technology, controlling the breeding, feeding, and rearing of Iberico pigs. Their drying and curing facilities are found in the middle of the mountains, and it is the combination of the climate and geographical conditions that gives La Prudencia products their magnificent quality.
