Pork Mince – More Superior in Nutrients & Flavour than Standard Pork

Our free range pork mince is made from prime cuts of shoulder and is incredibly tasty. We feel our pork is more superior in flavour and nutrients compared to standard pork products.

This is due to the natural forage based diet of the pigs. Free range pork mince makes a great alternative to beef mince and many recipes work well using with both beef and pork mince together. Why not try making some classic meatballs?

Our free range pork is reared in a system that has health and welfare at its heart. These pigs are not certified organic but have the space to roam and root.

The pigs are reared on a high proportion of pasture approved foods including fresh pasture, local vegetables and Lucerne silage.

The pigs will receive some grains and a mix of foods to help them achieve essential nutrients such as copper sulphate. They are also reared without the use of routine antibiotics.

Pork Mince Recipes

There’s no doubt that beef is something of a behemoth in the minced meat world. Lamb and turkey do occasionally enjoy some time in the sun, but pork mince remains somewhat overlooked.

While there are many reasons to embrace this unsung hero – pork mince is delicious, generally lean and cheaper than its aforementioned meaty counterparts – the most common factor in holding people back is simply not knowing quite what to do with it.

Fortunately, this collection of pork mince recipes contains plenty of inspiration for cooking with this fantastic ingredient.

Meatballs with tomato sauce

ITALIAN MEATBALLS AND TOMATO SAUCE

  • 100g of breadcrumbs, slightly stale
  • 250ml of milk
  • 350g Minced Meat (a mixture of Pork & Beef Mince say 50/50
  • 2 Eggs Beaten
  • 2 tbsp of flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 3 tbsp of pecorino, grated (ideally Pecorino Toscana cheese)
  • 30g Parmesan Grated
  • 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 125ml of dry white wine
  • 300g Tinned Chopped Tomatoes
  • Salt & Pepper

Method

1 To begin, place the breadcrumbs and milk in a bowl and leave to soak for 10 minutes. After this time, remove the bread and squeeze out any excess liquid
2 In a large bowl, combine the mince, half of the parsley, the garlic, cheeses and eggs, mixing well with your hands. Season with salt and pepper, add the soaked breadcrumbs and mix well
3 Using your hands, shape the mixture into round meatballs, each about 2cm in diameter
4 Add the oil to a large frying pan and place over a medium heat. Once hot, add the onion and sweat for 2–3 minutes until soft but without colour. Add the meatballs to the pan and fry for 5–6 minutes, turning often until evenly coloured on all sides
5 Add the wine to the pan and cook down until it has entirely evaporated. Pour in the tinned tomatoes and simmer for 20–25 minutes – after this time the meatballs will be cooked through and the sauce will have thickened nicely.
Sprinkle with the reserved parsley and serve
