The day finally arrived that my long awaited lomo reached 35% loss
Started with this nice loin from my recent hog aquisition
Seasoned and vac packed

The verdict? The flavours are very subtle and the texture is sublime.....if sliced thinly enough it just melts in your mouth. Surprisingly there is very little heat from the red pepper. Although i've never tried a Lomo before so i dont really have a point of reference.
Next time i think i will use a beef bung and up the spices a little
