This acorn fed, free range Ibérico pork from is marbled with flavorful fat that melts away when you cook it. When we first cooked pluma, we couldn't believe how tender and rich it was. This is how pork is supposed to taste!
Salt and pepper these pluma end loins and grill them over medium high heat, or in a cast iron skillet. The delectable pork will sizzle and crisp on the outside, with a juicy pink center. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
The pluma is a cut from the end of the loin, and is juicier than the presa steak or the solomillo tenderloin. Pluma is fairly thin, but leaner than the 'secreto' skirt steak.
Ibérico de Bellota pluma is a cut of pork from black Ibérico pigs that range freely across the extensive 'dehesa' oak forests of southwestern Spain. There they feast on huge amounts of sweet acorns and natural grasses. This special diet lends an incredibly complex flavor to the pork, and all that exercise allows the meat to be marbled with beneficial fats.
Your order will contain two pieces of pluma pork end loin, frozen and packed in dry ice.
The USDA recommends cooking all whole cuts of meat (including pork) to 145° F as measured with a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the meat.

"Mediocre product. Nothing really special about it. Expensive for what it is. Still had to remove silverskin which made it more expensive. Would not buy it again. "
Panagiotis - Pasadena , CA September 2019
"The pork had a good taste (not quite what I was expecting) but both loins were completely split the length of the product which made cooking a challenge; for the price I would have expected a much better cut."
Greg - Atlanta, GA May 2019
"Very juicy and flavorful! Taste more like beef than traditional pork! Pricey - so I will probably serve to special guests or on special occasions!"

"Pluma is my favorite among the Iberico grilling pork. Grilled over binchotan charcoal, the flavor is truly amazing - like no other pork you could get and just as good as Kobe beef. On several occasions that we've cooked this, there were no leftovers."
M. - New Albany, OH June 2017
"Far and away the best pork I have ever tasted. I buy my meats from a very good butcher not from the super market and the pork I usually purchase is better than the dry, fatless stuff from most grocery stores but it doesn't compare to this. I tried one and then quickly ordered 3 more. At the price I consider it a treat but Oh, what a treat it is. Weather did not permit outside grilling so I just seared in a hot skillet after salt and peppering it. Could not have been simpler nor better. Don't bother getting fancy with it."
Annie - San Francisco, CA April 2017
"Fantastic! Arrived frozen in 2 days, it is delicious pan-seared in olive oil with a bit of salt and pepper before cooking. Little crispy bits at the edges, juicy on the inside, like no other pork I've had. "
Peter - Huntingdon, PA August 2016
"Regular shipping to DC area arrived less than 2 days still totally frozen and with dry ice not yet melted. Found this page of cooking instructions that worked perfectly for me -- very hot fire in a weber kettle. http://paisdequercusblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/GOURMET-BARBECUE-blog.pdf "

"Great. Moist and flavorful. Roasted it in the oven with some salt, pepper, ancho chile powder and olive oil. Turned out great to eat by itself and I used leftovers to make amazing sandwiches."
Long - pittsburgh, PA August 2013
"Very rich and succulent. Be careful to not overcook as the amount of fat on the inside will dry up quickly. "
Kurt - New York, NY June 2013
"I grilled this very simply seasoned with a little salt and honey. My friends thought it was beef. Such great flavor!!"
Allen - Starkville, Mississippi January 2013
"I ordered this after Christmas and prepared it today. Salt, pepper, and broiled it in the oven. Unlike any meat I've ever tasted and so good. Pork, but a delicate, faintly sweet flavor. I sliced it thin and served in on Galician bread. Couldn't be a better sandwich or meal."
