The 'Cabecero" is an extremely well-marbled cut that boasts a uniquely nutty taste from the free-range lifestyle and flavorful diet of the Spanish Black Iberico breed. Consisting of the pork shoulder and collar, which is misleadingly also referred to as the “butt” in butcher shops and groceries. Longing for low and slow cooking, at which point the fat marbling is rendered and the meat becomes fall-apart tender. One of the most flavorful cuts available, we love it braised or smoked for hours on the grill.
Each piece weighs an average of 3 lbs.
