Pluma - Gris

Post by harryc » Thu May 18, 2017 10:59 pm

Anyone familiar with a cut of pork that is called Pluma på Svenska?

I've asked at several 'lihatiskis' and they said they didn't know - they only worked there.

Hi!
HK has that product, so keep asking for it at better shops - or order home delivery at kauppahalli24.fi

It's 'etuselkä' but haven't found what it is called in English.

I saw someone grilling it - some 100 pcs looking like pork steaks.

No 'etuselkä' pictures show anything looking like what I saw.

I did find a Spanish reference:

I wonder why so unknown in Finland - at least judging from the answers I got from 3 Kesko big markets.

OK - good - it's gotten that far. Had tried another K-Supermarket today and found a big zero - never heard of - not interested.

But I WON'T be buying the HK - have L-O-N-G decided to give ZERO (usually less) to any commercial meat or fish product that is smoked, marinated, etc.

This one isn't smoked or marinated. It's in my local Prisma so I guess it's in all of them.

Thanks - recall the price?

Interesting they are retaining the Swedish term. Anyone happen to know what this cut is called in English?

I still haven't found any 'liha' people at a number of markets in PK area rgar have ever heard of it - I guess the 'grilling season' will find it getting known.

I's the etuselkä cut horizontally - and is rather THICK - so will require special cooking if not 'smashed' to 'leike'

I don't think it's a Swedish term!

Spanish:

In English it is just called pork pluma (or pork end loin). Traditionally it comes from Iberian black pigs but I guess the Snellman / HK cuts are from regular Finnish pigs, the neck end of the tenderloin, which contains more fat that the other parts of the tenderloin and is therefore more flavoursome and tender. I've never tried it but might give it a go. I guess it's a new trendy thing, like lamb shanks were for a while. Personally, I think I prefer lamb shanks.

Sorry - I meant Finns using same term as Swedes (not that is was Swedish language) - but I had forgotten the page I had found was from Spain. It's Spanish for 'feather' but those hunks I've seen in pictures don't look they would aid flying :)
