The Instacart guide to capicola steaks
About capicola steaks
Capicola steaks come from the pork collar up around the shoulder of the hog. The collar has an intense flavor and tenderness very similar to the loin. It has more fat than the loin, which contributes more flavor, making pork collar steaks a delectable and affordable cut.
You can roast the pork collar steak, slice it thin, dry it out, bake it, or grill this versatile cut. The pork collar has excellent marbling that sets it apart from other pork steaks. It goes by several different names like pork neck filet, Boston butt steak, and pork shoulder steak.
Your local grocer likely has already included some version of the capicola steak in their daily cutting and packaging routine. You may find the capicola steak labeled as a pork shoulder steak, pork collar steak, or even find the whole pork collar ready to roast.
Neapolitan Italians have been making capicola salami for centuries from the pork collar meat. Capicola producers take the meat from the collar and season it with red or white wine, garlic, and herbs. A spicy version adds crushed red pepper.
After seasoning, the capicola is massaged with salt before hung out to dry, intensifying the flavors. Curing time takes up to six months to complete. In some instances, producers rub the exterior with paprika for more zest. You can find capicola in your deli section. It goes by the name capocollo as well and essentially mirrors the cured beef bresaola.
