A Dutch Suckling Pig

When you opt for our Dutch suckling pig, you're guaranteed meat of the highest quality. We place great value on the origin of our pork and ensure that we only collaborate with reliable suppliers who uphold the same high standards as we do.

Due to its young age, approximately 2 to 6 weeks, the meat has a fine texture and a light pink color. Additionally, it is well-marbled, meaning there are small veins of fat running through the meat that provide extra juiciness and flavor. This combination of factors contributes to the delicious taste of the meat. Purchasing a suckling pig is perfect for festive occasions, especially when it's roasted on a spit!

Origin and Quality of the Meat

We pay a lot of attention to our meat. We believe that animal welfare is important, and that naturally applies to the taste of the meat as well. Therefore, we closely monitor the origin of our products to ensure we can offer the best quality.

Our products undergo regular testing and checks to ensure they meet our strict standards. We do this not only to offer the best quality but also to provide you with a safe and reliable shopping experience.

Tips for Preparing a Suckling Pig

Preparing a suckling pig, usually weighing between 7 and 9 kg, requires some care and attention to ensure that the meat remains juicy and flavorful. In addition to the natural taste of the meat, seasoning also plays an important role in enhancing the flavors.

Below are some tips on how to do this:

When preparing a suckling pig, it's necessary to first clean and pat it dry before marinating with a mix of rubs, such as garlic, rosemary, thyme, and citrus fruits. Let the meat marinate for several hours to overnight to allow the flavors to infuse.

Buying and Grilling or Roasting a Suckling Pig

You can prepare a suckling pig in various ways, but grilling or roasting are perhaps the most popular options. Preheat the grill or oven to the appropriate temperature and place the meat on the grill grate. Turn it regularly to ensure even cooking. The most convenient and festive way to prepare it is, of course, on a spit!

To ensure that the meat reaches the correct temperature, you can use a meat thermometer. The core temperature should be between 67 and 70 degrees Celsius to ensure that the meat is fully cooked.

Another delicious option for grilling is Iberico meat or Livar pork.
