La Prudencia Iberico Secreto

The most delicious best-kept secret

Uniron¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly, one of Spain‚Äôs best kept secrets, the Iberi¬≠co Secre¬≠to is a pork cut that is so deli¬≠cious and suc¬≠cu¬≠lent, you‚Äôll won¬≠der why it‚Äôs not more well-known.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

A dark¬≠ly col¬≠ored pork, this secret cut is so incred¬≠i¬≠bly ten¬≠der and shows off that very dis¬≠tinct pata negra taste, mild and nut¬≠ty. Thin¬≠ly por¬≠tioned, it‚Äôs a high¬≠ly prized cut from the shoul¬≠der area of the Iber¬≠ian pig. It‚Äôs striped with a mar¬≠bling of fat, which we know is what gives Iberi¬≠co pork it‚Äôs excel¬≠lent juicy and rich texture.

PREPA­RA­TIONS AND PAIRINGS

The fat in Iberi¬≠co pigs is the mono-sat¬≠u¬≠rat¬≠ed kind, aka the ‚Äč‚Äúgood fat.‚ÄĚ Much like olive oil, it‚Äôs high in ole¬≠ic acid; in fact, Iber¬≠ian pork is some¬≠times called olive oil meat. It‚Äôs juicy and fla¬≠vor¬≠ful all on its own, and tru¬≠ly needs lit¬≠tle to no addi¬≠tion¬≠al dra¬≠mat¬≠ics when preparing.

  • Heat your pan. Add a lit¬≠tle bit of oil, and cook on a grid¬≠dle or fry¬≠ing pan.
  • Cook for a cou¬≠ple of min¬≠utes, until it shows a rich, gold¬≠en-brown color.
  • Remove, and let the steaks rest for around four min¬≠utes. It will puff up a bit; this is that beau¬≠ti¬≠ful fat melt¬≠ed, and sat¬≠u¬≠rat¬≠ing it with flavor.
  • Sea¬≠son with pep¬≠per and salt, Mal¬≠don Sea Salt being a good option. 
  • Slice across the grain
  • Serve imme¬≠di¬≠ate¬≠ly, with some warm bread and a light sal¬≠ad with zesty dressing

Pair with this with a Vil¬≠lard Expres¬≠sion 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.
