Free-range Hand of Pork
Our Free-range Hand of Pork (actually the upper part of the pig’s foreleg) is an absolute bargain and our go-to choice for succulent slow-cooked pulled pork. It’s a really generous bone-in cut – typically 2-3kg – so you get a lot of meat for your money: perfect for bigger families or if you like plenty of leftovers. Just make sure you cook it low and slow – up to 12 hours – for maximum succulence and flavour. For inspiration, check out these pulled pork recipes from the Love Pork people.
Please note, we sell our hands of pork as a whole cut rather than per kg, so there will be some natural variation in weight, depending on the size of the pig.
