The Flat Pork Belly is a versatile cut with the creamy layering of fat offering rich succulence, and is left unrolled on the bone by our Master Butcher as neat slab of pork. Well suited to marinating or slow roasting, the impressive flavour of the pork belly reflects the rich diets of our free range hogs which are allowed to mature at their own pace for the best results in the kitchen.

How to cook

The quality of our native breed pork belly makes for a delicious joint perfect for a slow roasting as well as being well suited to marinating. Try roasting on a trivet of onion, carrot, and celeriac to give the Flat Pork Belly aroma, and serving with ragout pulses with bacon and shallots, alongside a rich grain mustard.

About the cut

Flat Pork Belly

An example of contemporary meat cutting styles, the belly is ordinarily rolled, however this joint is the preferred favourite for chefs, looking for roasting joints that can be marinated or cut into individual portions easily, and offer the fat cover whilst left on the bone for meat full of flavour and natural juiciness. Matured for 14 days, the belly demonstrates why our native breed pork is so special.

About the breed

Mangalica

Region:

At first glance, the Mangalica might be mistaken for another creature. Wrapped in a distinctive woolly coat, they're a hardy breed, well suited to outdoor rearing where they can forage and dig for grubs at their own pace - imbuing the meat with flavour and unrivalled marbling. This curly haired creature is laid back in nature, and were once so prized they traded alongside gold in Central European markets. The mechanisation and rationalisation of agriculture almost drove the breed to extinction, however chefs have led the charge to revive the breed, hailing the Mangalica as the wagyu of the pork world. Traditionally they were reared for lard and prized for their mellow, silky fat, and as you'd expect from this breed, the pork is beautifully marbled throughout. The breed has become popular with home cooks meaning British breeders are able to revive this old-world breed for years to come.
