Presa from the Austrian straw pig makes even beef look pale. Not only in terms of colour, because the intense red is characteristic, but above all in terms of taste. It is ideal for grilling or cooking and can also be served pink.

Meat knowledge

The trendy Spanish cut from the Austrian straw pig. Presa is still a relatively unknown cut here, but it has a fabulous aroma. Presa is cut from the neck of the pig, which gives it a deep red colour and an exceptionally fine marbling. The succulent meat is perfect for barbecuing, but also roasts beautifully or can be cooked sous vide. Due to the high quality of our straw pigs, the meat can be served pink. In other words, relatively similar to a beef steak.

Where exactly is the Presa located?

Basically, every pig or breed of pig has a presa. It comes from the neck of the pig. However, the quality of the meat is not the same for all breeds.

In Spain it is traditionally obtained from Iberico pigs. At Fitmeat we offer the perfect Austrian alternative, from the straw pig.

The relatively high fat content of straw pigs makes the meat wonderfully aromatic. The hearty, heavily marbled cut is perfect for roasting whole or as a steak. The marbling also ensures that the meat remains extremely juicy.

Grilling Presa properly

The same rule of thumb applies here as for quality beef steaks. Presa should always be cooked pink, with a core temperature of 60°C. Bear in mind, however, that a whole Presa will naturally take a little longer to cook than when cut into fine steaks.

. It is best to sear the meat and then, once the roast aromas have developed, finish cooking it in the indirect oven at a low temperature.

We recommend one kilogram of presa for three 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.
