León pimentón rubbed smoked panceta has the perfect balance of lean and fat and is marinated in Pimenton to give a spicy heat to the rind. It adds a deep, salty smokiness to any dish or gourmet sandwich.
In Spain, Panceta is also often referred to as Bacon. Selection of quality raw ingredients is key. The cured belly pork is cut and then smoked over oak. Panceta is wonderfully versatile and adds flavour to the other ingredients it is combined with. In traditional slow-cook Spanish dishes such as Cocidos, often just a little is added for depth of flavour.
