Meat knowledge

The topside of the pig is cut from the hindquarter. The coveted imperial part comes from the inner side of the leg and is divided into the shell and the cap.

Lean and delicious at the same time

In general, the topside without cap is an extremely lean, finely fibrous and evenly textured cut.

It has hardly any fat and flax and should therefore only be cooked briefly to avoid drying out. The cap must be removed when portioning and can be used for goulash or ragout, for example.

The Topside without cap alias the fabulous Kaiserschnitzel

The Topside without cap, or Kaiserschnitzel, is, as the name suggests, something very special. You could say it is the most sought-after cut of pig's leg. Especially for wonderfully juicy schnitzels or cordon bleu, this meat is an absolute hit.

Lean, fine fibres and an even texture - these characteristics probably best fit the description of the Kaiserschnitzel. This makes it easy to handle and guarantees an optimal result.

Cows image

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

For us at Fitmeat, this kind 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 the careful and stress-free individual slaughter of the pigs, our butchers leave the straw pigs to mature on the bone for a few days. The result is juicy and tender pieces of pork with a wonderful aroma.
