The Snake River Farms pork collar is a beautifully marbled cut with a rich, remarkable flavor. Pork collars are a familiar item in Europe and because of their intense marbling are used to make traditional sausages such as coppa. This boneless cut is starting to gain a following in the U.S. and makes the occasional appearance on restaurant menus. The collar is cut from the shoulder portion that runs from the neck to the tip of the loin. This versatile, boneless item is excellent roasted, braised in stock or cut into chops and grilled.
Due to the unique conformations of this product, approximate weights can vary up to +/- 0.5 pounds.

Very good for a family dinner. I would have appreciated more advice on how to cook this cut.

Awesome piece of porky goodness
I cut the collar into 5 nice size chops then I seared them in a cast iron pan with clarified butter, garlic and rosemary. Super basic prep but they were still very tender and the taste was exquisite. I think I'm hooked on the collar, already ordered another one.

Size not as advertised
I ordered three pork collars, all of them were below the 4lb advertised description. I understand the variation in sizes but for all three to be below the weight advertised is misleading. Out of the three only one was within the variation listed weighing in at 3.9 pounds. The second was 3.4 pounds and the last was only 2.5 pounds!

Kurobuta Pork Collar - misleading ad info
The product is advertised as approx. 4 lbs weight but what I've received was 3.02 lbs.Disappointing.

Ordered 2 of these and did them together on the smoker low and slow. One was done Texas style with only Kosher salt and some course black pepper. The other was slather in spicy mustard and a nice Cajun style blackened seasoning added.
Both of these came out FANTASTIC! A very sweet and unique porky flavor. I don't think there was a favorite except on an individual level. The spicy one to me was absolutely delicious and what little was left I quickly put up to enjoy for lunch at a later time. I would not hesitate one bit in ordering these again. Thanks as usual SRF!
