Purebred Iberian
Bellota Top quality: pig fed exclusively on acorns (more)
Hog cuts: loin
The outer fat is removed from the loin and the meat is seasoned and marinated for 48 hours, then stuffed into colon casings and dried and aged for 8 to 12 months.
When the sausages reach the optimum point of curing, they are stored in the tradition of the matanza (pig butchering season) in Extremadura by placing them in an earthenware jar and covering them with white lard from the same pigs.
Ingredients: Ham from bellota-grade purebred Iberian pigs, paprika, garlic and salt.
Bellota-grade purebred Iberian pigs. A purebred Iberian pig comes from parents of 100% Iberian bloodstock (not cross-bred) and accounts for less than 5% of the country's Iberian pigs. The animals add at least 37% of their initial weight on a diet consisting mainly of acorns, grass, roots and tubers.
Enjoying your lomo embuchado
Remove the plastic vacuum packaging and leave at room temperature at least 1 hour before consuming.
Keep in the fridge, or in some place under 15ºC / 59ºF. Do not freeze.

Pork loin sausage ships in a cardboard carton. It is vacuum-packed (see picture).

probably the best tasting lomo ever produced

From the first time i travelled to Spain and tasted lomo/jamon/chorizo I've been hooked, the only problem with purchasing these products is when you bring them home from Spain they don't always taste the same. For a number of years i have been finding it increasingly more difficult to find a good quality product that travels well, finally i can say i have found it.
When you open the packaging around your Maldonado lomo you release the distinctive, delicate aroma which evokes emotions that will immediately transport you to sunny days, long nights and memories of happier times. I purchased 1.4 kg for my family of four (with other products), the lomo lasted 6 weeks from start to finish the lomo never lost flavor or taste. The foil backed packaging and layer of grease kept the flavor locked in and maintained the premium products' shelf life.
When i first slice in to this product had to control my self as i felt the urge to eat everything my self. As i slice the lomo thinly it released the naturally liquefied grease/fat (the healthy kind that's good for you) from the matured product releasing more flavor, as you place the first slice on your tongue the lomo has a melt in your mouth sensation that is intoxicating.
I can highly recommend this product and as an authentic, premium quality Spanish product, for me its one of the best tasting lomo's ever produced. If there is any product you purchase this year from Ibergour make it this one you will not be disappointed. The taste is priceless.

Well balanced in seasoning

A very understated item, its aroma was subtle giving away none of the surprises when it was eaten, amazing depth of flavour, well balanced in seasoning.
