This acorn fed, free range Ibérico pork from is marbled with flavorful fat that melts away when you cook it. When we first cooked pluma, we couldn't believe how tender and rich it was. This is how pork is supposed to taste!

Salt and pepper these pluma end loins and grill them over medium high heat, or in a cast iron skillet. The delectable pork will sizzle and crisp on the outside, with a juicy pink center. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

The pluma is a cut from the end of the loin, and is juicier than the presa steak or the solomillo tenderloin. Pluma is fairly thin, but leaner than the 'secreto' skirt steak.

Ibérico de Bellota pluma is a cut of pork from black Ibérico pigs that range freely across the extensive 'dehesa' oak forests of southwestern Spain. There they feast on huge amounts of sweet acorns and natural grasses. This special diet lends an incredibly complex flavor to the pork, and all that exercise allows the meat to be marbled with beneficial fats.

Your order will contain two pieces of pluma pork end loin, frozen and packed in dry ice.

The USDA recommends cooking all whole cuts of meat (including pork) to 145° F as measured with a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the meat.

    "Great. Moist and flavorful. Roasted it in the oven with some salt, pepper, ancho chile powder and olive oil. Turned out great to eat by itself and I used leftovers to make amazing sandwiches."
  • Kurt Huhner - New York, NY  
    "Very rich and succulent. Be careful to not overcook as the amount of fat on the inside will dry up quickly. "
  • Allen Proulx - Starkville, Mississippi  
    "I grilled this very simply seasoned with a little salt and honey. My friends thought it was beef. Such great flavor!!"
  • Joy - Madison, Alabama  
    "I ordered this after Christmas and prepared it today. Salt, pepper, and broiled it in the oven. Unlike any meat I've ever tasted and so good. Pork, but a delicate, faintly sweet flavor. I sliced it thin and served in on Galician bread. Couldn't be a better sandwich or meal."
