Lomo Ibérico Extremeńo

Lomo Ibérico Extremeńo originates in Extremadura, a western Spanish region bordering Portugal and comprises the provinces of Cáceres and Badajoz. It’s a remote area of mountains, forests, lakes/ plenty of oak trees and reserves. Black Iberian pigs roam in the area and consume acorns from oak groves. This special diet of acorns, herbs and grass, along with lots of exercise, gives Iberic meat its delicate flavor and a texture.
