Description

The lean pork roasting joint of choice, the Pork Leg is a roasting special, ideal for pot roasting and boasting the rich, succulent flavour that makes our free range pork so special. The dry aging process concentrates the porky taste of the meat, which is by virtue of the strict use of native breed pork reared on a rich diet and being allowed to mature at their own pace.

How to cook

The quality of our native breed Pork Leg makes for a delicious, lean 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 joint aroma, serving with traditional roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, and buttery apple sauce.

About the cut

Pork Leg Boned

A roasting joint well loved for its leaner finish than other pork joints, and carefully boned by our Master Butcher. Our pork joints are sourced from a supply of free range pork, to ensure deep colour and character that mass produced pork cannot match. This is added to upon dry aging for a minimum of 14 days, which concentrates the rich flavours and gives the meat its standout quality.

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.
