Tender sliced cured beef with a deep red color and rich smoky flavor is León's answer to jamón. This is cecina, a premium cut of beef cured with sea salt and smoked over oakwood with no preservatives. Cecina is Spain's culinary secret, just as worthy of culinary acclaim as Spain's famous hams. And like jamón, over thousands of years the people of Spain have transformed the curing of beef from a necessity to an art, creating a delicate, flavorful meat unlike any other in the world.

Always serve cecina thinly sliced at room temperature as you would Spanish jamón. It is usually enjoyed as a tapa with a glass of wine, but can also be added to fresh salad. Because it is leaner than ham, we usually drizzle a little bit of extra virgin olive oil on the slices. Cecina can be served alongside a plate of sliced Serrano ham, where the similarities and contrasts between these two classic cured meats can be enjoyed.

Quality is our goal, and our cecina is cured with just salt and smoke - no nitrates or nitrates added. Spain is not permitted to export beef to the United States, so we work with a small family curing house to create an American-made cecina. The cure masters take whole pieces of premium, hormone free beef and carefully cure and cold smoke each piece with oak wood in the Spanish tradition.

León, in northwest Spain, was founded by the Romans (León probably derives from the word "legion," as opposed to its modern spelling which means "lion"). Because of a cooler, greener climate, there is a strong tradition of cattle farming. Smoking and curing beef became an important way to preserve meat starting in Roman times, and over countless generations the method was perfected. Today, the full flavor and delicate texture of cecina speaks to this history, and makes cecina a truly special cured meat.

This cecina was carefully sliced at our facilities and is kept refrigerated to preserve its flavor. Cecina does not require cooking, but can be added to recipes.
