Neck without fat

from the Austrian straw pig


ca. 1 kg (18.9 € / kg)

Ready for shipping. Delivery time: 1 working day

The shank is a heavily marbled cut of straw pork. It is one of the most popular cuts when cut into slices or as a roast pork. Our straw pigs tend to have a higher fat content, which makes the meat juicy and flavourful. The shank is ideal for pulled pork, as an alternative to Boston butt.

Meat knowledge

A top-quality, fat-free neck is delicious in itself! Tender, juicy meat and a wonderful flavour of its own - what more could you want? With us you will find a delicious rindless roast from Austrian straw pork that will exceed your highest expectations.

. The neck is ideal for steaks, roast pork or to prepare as pulled pork. Our Strohpig has a high fat cover and a strong marbling. When properly matured, it develops its full flavour.

This is the best way to prepare the neck without fat

Most of the time, the fatless neck is cooked whole, as this is where all its advantages come to the fore. As a roast, it is a guaranteed hit - as long as the cooking time and core temperature are right, of course.

Without much effort and singing that it will be good, the fatless neck develops its full flavour and becomes decidedly tender and succulent. There is a very simple secret to this that the neck brings with it. We are talking about fat.

Both fat and connective tissue are well distributed in this cut, which is a real advantage when cooking. The meat comes from the muscles of the neck and is therefore rather dark, crumbly and wonderfully intense in flavour. The fat also acts as a flavour carrier and prevents the meat from drying out. So the roast practically feeds itself and helps itself. Isn't that nice?

We recommend two kilograms of crested meat for six to nine people.

Pigs are extremely intelligent and clean animals. Therefore, species-appropriate and caring rearing is the be-all and end-all for us. A requirement that is also reflected in the delicious taste.

If you compare pigs from factory farms, for example, one thing is immediately clear: due to the constant stress, the meat is much firmer, loses a lot of water when roasted and hardly has any flavour of its own.

For us at Fitmeat, this type of rearing is out of the question for many reasons. We fight for animal welfare and the appreciation of meat products and strictly distance ourselves from immoral factory farming.

After careful and stress-free individual slaughtering of the pigs, our butchers allow the straw pigs to mature on the bone for a few days. The result is juicy and tender pieces of pork with a wonderful meat flavour.
