Pork Back Fat

Pork Back Fat

2 pound avg

This fat comes from the exterior of the hog, often the back and shoulder. It has more pronounced pork flavor than the leaf lard. Render it down to use when making Carnitas or Pork Rinds.

Pork back fat contains monounsaturated fats, which promote heart health and aid in reducing LDL cholesterol levels. Its high smoke point makes it ideal for frying, roasting, and sautéing, adding depth and richness to dishes without compromising nutritional integrity. 

Use it to crisp up vegetables, create deliciously golden pan-seared meats, or render for homemade lard, enhancing both savory and sweet recipes. 

Additionally, its absence of corn and soy ensures a cleaner, allergen-friendly option for those with dietary sensitivities.
