Made from heritage-breed Berkshire pigs (referred to as Kurobuta in Japanese), this is absolutely among the highest quality and most meticulously produced pork available anywhere in the United States. With smooth, luscious fat that can crisp beautifully on the outside while retaining its juiciness on the interior, this ground pork is stellar for burgers, meatballs, sausage, soups, or as the base for a bolognese sauce.
Berkshire is a heritage pig breed from Berkshire County, England. Prized for their exceptional tenderness, deep color, complex fat marbling, and richly flavorful meat, they have gained recognition as pork’s closest approximation to Wagyu beef. In the nineteenth century, Berkshires were first introduced to Japan and the United States, and Japanese Kurobuta pork continues to be the prime choice for elite chefs in Japan and beyond.
