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. Lisa's animals are all Pedigree Mangalitza and come to us complete with a certificate of authenticity - and a lovely personal story about each special piggie.

  • 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 Prime Rib Steak Min. 220g

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.

  • Mangalitza Baby Back Ribs Min. 650g

You can prepare the ribs to any recipe that you would normally use, but remember that the meat will tastier, the fat will be meltier and the flavour will be more intense than anything you have had before!!
    When we tried them at home we popped them in the slow cooker for about 8 hours and then simply brushed them with the barbecue sauce (ingredients below) and finished them in the oven for half an hour. Don't have the heat up too high until the very end, or the sugar will burn. Then - added bonus - take your stock and make a delicious soup with the addition of peas or lentils!

    2 garlic cloves
    2 tbsp olive oil

  • Mangalitza Dry Cured Gammon Min. 1kg ** 2 GOLD STARS GREAT TASTE**

    Using a traditional dry cure, we have taken the fabulously marbled Mangalitza Pork legs and created one of the best gammons that we have ever tasted! The meat is a dark ruby red and retains a lot of its succulence due to the amazing intra-muscular marbling, and of course the fat covering is absolutely delicious. Place your joint in a large plan of water and bring to the boil, discarding the water and refreshing the pan after that. We would recommend boiling the gammon for approximately 30 minutes / lb (or 1hr/kg) and then cool the joint for about 15 minutes. You can then score the fat into diamond shapes and it does look very attractive to stud with cloves in the centre of each square or diamond. A particularly tasty glaze can be made by simply combining a whole grain mustard and honey or maple syrup, spread over the ham and place it in a foil lined baking tin. It will usually take about twenty five minutes at 200C for the glaze to turn a beautiful golden brown and to fill the kitchen with the glorious aroma of baked ham! Learn More

  • Mangalitza Shoulder Butt or Boston Butt Min. 1.8kg

    A pork shoulder, as the name implies, comes from the upper front leg of the pig and is generally divided into two sections. At the top of the leg is a rectangular roast known in the U.S.A. as the butt or Boston Butt. Legend has it that this name comes from the packaging methods used to ship pork in Colonial America, when it was put into wood casks known as Butts. The Butchers, particularly in Boston, developed a singular method for cutting the shoulder which subsequently became known as the "Boston Butt".Due to it's size and the fat content, a slow cooked "butt" can lose as much as 50% of its weight in a cooking process so do bear that in mind. What results though!! Completely and utterly delicious, succulent, juicy, flavoursome pork, the likes of which you will never have tried before - we promise!! Learn More
