Pigs are remarkable creatures.
However, there is one particular pig out there that reportedly has the best pork, with unmistakable flavor and texture. We are talking about the Mangalitsa.
While they are rare, with only 60,000 living across the entire world, the meat from the Mangalitsa has a buttery, melt-in-your-mouth flavor. It also melts right in your mouth.
With a 50 percent fat content, the meat is considered a delicacy by chefs. (1, last) While some speculate the Mangalitsa’s meat could serve as the world’s best bacon ever, others are more amazed by the appearance of the pigs.
Described as a cross between a pig and a sheep, the animal has the body and face of a typical pig weighing 300 pounds. However it’s the coat that garners attention, making onlookers do a double take. The animal has wool-like fur.
The Mangalitsa is a real animal, not genetically engineered in any way. They have absolutely no sheep Dna in them.
They are predominantly found in Austria and Hungary, so that heavy coat keeps them warm during the frigid European winters.
How do you like these pigs?
