Berkshire Pork Rib Roast

Berkshire Pork Rib Roast Recipe

We’ve all heard of wagyu beef, being the highest quality, most desirable type of beef available. But what is the pork version of wagyu? Is there such a thing as wagyu pork?

While there is no such thing as wagyu pork, there is the top of the food chain when it comes to fine swine – Berkshire pork.

The Berkshire variety of pigs was introduced to the US from England back in the 1800’s, and thanks to a small handful of farmers and enthusiasts, the Berkshire has remained a heritage breed. These pigs are tended to by a small group of farmers in the American Ozarks. Berkshire pigs are allowed to forage in their own pastures with their own family and are not given any hormones or antibiotics.

Berkshire pork meat has excellent marbling, silky fat (this is what we loved most about it) and yields incredibly juicy, soft, and delicate meat. We really enjoyed making this video with the Berkshire rib roast. It was absolutely delicious, and has certainly raised the bar when it comes to pork.
