Presa is a beautiful, flavorful cut of pork that melts in your mouth - we call it "the other red meat!" Grilled medium rare, it has a juicy, tender bite and a full mouthwatering flavor that speaks of its free-range acorn fed source.
Presa is a thick shoulder steak unlike any other. It is thick and juicy, but leaner than the "pluma" end loin or the "secreto" flank steak.
Ibérico de Bellota pork comes from free range, acorn fed Ibérico pigs indigenous to Spain. They live an ideal life munching on grass and acorns under cork and holm oak trees. Their diet provides a complex flavor and a fat that literally melts in your mouth. The exercise provides the beautiful marbling that distinguishes Ibérico pork from any other.
Our favorite way to prepare this incredible pork is to season with salt and pepper and grill or sear the presa, then cook at medium high heat until done. The center of the steak should still be pink. This cut has less fat than other types of Ibérico pork, so be careful not to overcook. Let it rest for 5 minutes, then cut thin slices to best enjoy the flavor.
You will receive one frozen 'presa' steak, delivered on dry ice. Thaw to room temperature before cooking. Be sure to serve with a fine bottle of wine and a good, crusty loaf of bread!
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.

"I've never had pork this good!"
MARK - PARK CITY, UT May 2016
"I was cautious about this because any shoulder steak needs some consideration as how to prepare it, and I thought grilling was a bit far-fetched. This was a step beyond. I've always loved Ibérica de Bellota cured and sliced products, but the grilling meat is way better than most American beef. Grill it for your very best friends and family, as you would the best cut of any meat you love. "
CSS - Edenton, NC May 2016

Keith - Augusta, GA May 2014
"This meat was just amazing. Tender, and bright red. Could hardly believe it was pork. Brushed with olive oil, a little salt and some red pepper flakes. Seared for about 2 minutes per side, then moved to indirect heat for about 5 minutes per side. Remove, cover and let sit for 10 minutes then slice thinly. Nyum Nyum! We had with pan fried asparagus and a veggie salad."
