Venison en orza is a meat preserve from Jaen. The traditional recipe from the southeast and centre of Spain is usually made with pork loin or sirloin (lomo), but in this case, we have Venison ham. The meat is slowly fried on its own fat and spiced with garlic, black pepper, and oregano (or with other spices, as every family has their own recipe). Once the meat is very tender, which a rich flavour and aroma, it would be placed on its own fat at a jar (orza), that would usually be terracotta but may also be a glass jar. The fat would then solidify, preserving the meat for the whole year-round. A second option would be to use olive oil, which does not get solid and makes it easier to take the meat out of the jar. This is usually done in lands that produce lots of olive oil, as in Jaen. Lomo en orza would translate as loin in jar.
Artemonte is a company that sources responsibly from the mount Sierra Morena in Jaen. They protect and respect the land and the animals while making meat products of high quality. Using traditional recipes and always making an exhaustive selection of raw materials, they do their best to improve the manufacturing processes, for products that have an exquisite flavour and don't disappoint.
This venison en orza has an intense flavour and a delicate texture. It is not made out of loin, but with ham, because this cut of the venison seems more appropriate on the recipe. The game is responsible sourced from the own Artemonte dehesa. Serve it as it comes, over a slice of sourdough bread and enjoy. It pairs well with red wines, especially red bobal.
Venison ham, extra virgin olive oil, salt, garlic, pepper, oregano.
