Mangalitza Pork - NOT JUST PORK - ON THE COUNTER

Welcome to Alternative Meats - Deliciously Different

Mangalitza Pork

Mangalitza Pork

This is the story of the journey of the Mangalitza Pig, especially created for the high table of The Hapsberg Royal Family and the Aristocracy of Europe in the early 1880's, brought to the verge of extinction almost a century later, and now appearing in the pages of this website for your enjoyment in the 21st Century. It is difficult to describe with mere words how delicious, how unctuous and tender, juicy and succulent this pork is - you can only find out by trying it yourself. Our never ending gratitude to Lisa at Otterburn Mangalitzas (follow her on Facebook and Twitter - @otterburnmangalitza), where the piggies are lovingly farmed. Here you can see Kevin Bacon enjoying the sunset in his field in Helmsley, Yorkshire, who's story is told on our facebook page in detail, and who is actually the first of Lisa's pigs that we have purchased to sell here on the website.

  • Mangalitza Pork Rump Steak Min. 220g

    Although slightly firmer in bite than a loin steak, we found this cut of the Mangalitza had such flavour and was still very succulent, which is due the marbling of this wonderful ruby coloured meat. We have pan fried, grilled and slow-cooked this cut which is very versatile and perfect for a weekend lunch or dinner. Learn More

  • Mangalitza Pork Prime Rib Steak Min. 220g

    The prime rib is usually associated with a beef animal - but we cut the Mangalitza in a very specialised way to get the best out of the animal. Look at the marbling on this steak - once you have tasted Mangalitza pork, the percentage of fat on a chop or steak will take on an entirely different meaning! The fat is softer, runnier, its melting point is lower and it is much easier to digest. This makes it a better food source as it does not burden the digestive system. The meat is juicy and succulent, and the melted fat does not make the mouth feel greasy at all, just moist. Learn More

  • Mangalitza Pork Loin Steak Min. 170g

    Once you have tasted Mangalitza pork, the percentage of fat on a chop or steak will take on an entirely different meaning! It is important though to realise that all the rules are there to be broken when it comes to Mangalitza - which contains healthier fatty acids than ordinary pork, with 15 - 20% higher levels of unsaturated fat than for instance, the Duroc, a commonly used pig in the UK. The fat is softer, runnier, its melting point is lower and it is much easier to digest. This makes it a better food source as it does not burden the digestive system. The meat is juicy and succulent, and the melted fat does not make the mouth feel greasy at all, just moist. Learn More

  • Mangalitza Pork Black Pudding Min. 300g
