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 Burgers - Min. 170g

    A very natural step for us along the research and development path was to look at producing a delicious burger from this amazing pork - and by George have we had success! It's very hard to compare the Mangalitza with anything else, as the attributes of this pork are just so amazing - the depth of flavour, the wonderful "umami" that we all know about but can't pinpoint terribly easily .... make this an exceptionally juicy, tasty burger, the like of which you will not find on the high street!

  • 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 Diced Min. 500g

  • Black Pudding with Mangalitza Pork Fat - Min. 300g

    1 Review(s)
    This Prince of Black Puddings is produced by an artisan butcher who really understands how to bring out the best in a pudding - although he definitely has a head start when it contains Mangalitza Pork Fat. We love this product so much that it has taken us three orders to be able to keep enough in stock in the office to sell to the public!! Use it for VERY special breakfasts or to complement fresh scallops .... make an apple stack with it and present your guests with a starter that they will never forget! Learn More

  • Mangalitza Dry Cure - Min. 200g

    At last we are announcing the launch of two new Mangalitza Products - which we are calling "Dry Cure" and "Black" (which is featured below). We use Mangalitza loin and dry cure it for 10 days - producing what Michelin Star Chef Gareth Ward of Ynyshir Restaurant called ........ "Some of THE best bacon I have ever had" ..........and Mike Church, Executive Chef at Ty'n Rhos Country House Hotel was quite lost for words ...."It's insane" he said (with the odd expletive mixed in!).The fat that edges this bacon is in no small way responsible for the delicious full flavour and tenderness of this stunning product. The packs contain 200g min. and we've cut generous thick slices.
    This really would make an amazing treat for your family and guests over the Christmas holiday, and if you combine the bacon with our lovely Mangalitza Sausages and Black Pudding, you will surely produce the Best Breakfast in the Whole World!!! Learn More

  • Mangalitza Black - Min. 200g

    At last we are announcing the launch of two new Mangalitza Products - which we are calling "Black" and "Dry Cure" (which is featured above). We use Mangalitza loin and dry cure it with the addition of treacle for 10 days - producing what Michelin Star Chef Gareth Ward of Ynyshir Restaurant called ........ "Some of THE best bacon I have ever had" ..........and Mike Church, Executive Chef at Ty'n Rhos Country House Hotel was quite lost for words ...."It's insane" he said (with the odd expletive mixed in!).The fat that edges this bacon is in no small way responsible for the delicious full flavour and tenderness of this stunning product. The packs contain 200g min. and we've cut generous thick slices. We would caution you that the treacle, being sugar-based of course, will "catch" quite easily - although the burnt sugar flavour when mixed with the very gorgeous fat is a sublime experience!
    This really would make an amazing treat for your family and guests over the Christmas holiday, and if you combine the bacon with our lovely Mangalitza Sausages and Black Pudding, you will surely produce the Best Breakfast in the Whole World!!!Learn More

    In response to many requests from our adoring Mangalitza devotees, we have now decided to produce Mangalitza Pork Chops for you. They are chunky, well marbled and completely delicious! We have been butchering these lovely piggies in the style of a beef animal due to their immense size and muscle formation, but having recently been asked if chops were a possibility, we decided to experiment and the results are stunning.

  • Mangalitza Pork Fat - Min. 300g

    Sometimes known as "White Gold", this fat really is something special. We're not just saying that. It has a velvety feel on the lips, and adds an amazing flavour to your cooking - whether it's roast potatoes ......or pastry......... or a coating on the roast parsnips at Christmas time. The fat has been artfully rendered to produce a smooth, creamy white dripping when it is refrigerated, and when at room temperature it will be liquid.Lard has less saturated fat and more unsaturated fat than an equal amount of butter, and contains no trans fat, unlike margarine, vegetable shortenings and hydrogenated fats. Lard has been seeing a comeback in recent years, as chefs realize that no other cooking medium has the qualities and flavor of lard. Foodies and farmers are rehabilitating the reputation of lard, and science is even re-examining the studies on lard, so we are here to say - Try It !! Learn More

  • Mangalitza Dry Cured Gammon - Approx. 1kg TWO GOLD STAR WINNER 2018 GREAT TASTE AWARDS

    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

    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
