This is one of the juiciest cuts to be found in any meat-producing animal. It has an evocative texture that is surprising as the very first bite. This piece holds the starring role in pork-based gastronomy. The cut is thick and it is hidden deep between the pig’s two sides of bacon, hence the reason for its curious name - "secret". The marbling of fat is what gives rise to its pink, rosy colour and an unbeatable delicious silky texture.
