Om produkten

Gurpi is a traditional Sami delicacy that consists of minced reindeer meat mixed with reindeer fat, wrapped in netted reindeer fat and finally cold-smoked in a hut.

The process involves first drying the reindeer meat overnight, grinding it and then mixing it with reindeer fat. The meat is wrapped in mesh fat (called leksusbuoidi in Northern Sami), which is the fat that surrounds parts of the reindeer's stomach. Leksusbuoidi is chosen with precision and can only be taken in autumn or winter before the reindeer loses much of its fat during the lean winter. Gurpin is finally cold-smoked in a hut where it acquires its characteristic flavour.

Gurpi is best cooked simply in a pan or on a skewer over a fire. Cut Gurpin into 1 cm thick slices and fry it on each side for about 1 minute in a pan with butter or (preferably) reindeer fat. Serve with potatoes, mushrooms and lingonberries, for example. The book Smak på Sápmi has two good recipes for Gurpi. Also try grilling the slices for a short time on direct heat. This will give you a nice crispy surface along with the delicious smoky flavour. At the same time, it is more low-fat as a lot of the fat drips into the grill.

Ingredients: Lightly smoked minced reindeer meat, reindeer fat, salt

Gurpi is sent vacuum-packed and frozen.

        Top quality

        This Gurpi is very good quality, full of flavour, properly smoked.The fat content is much lower than I expected, which is great, it means there's more meat. Will definitely buy again.

        High quality game meat

        Our concept is to offer the best game meat available, directly to you, the end customer. We make sure you can buy the cuts that are otherwise only sold to wholesalers and fine restaurants.

        100% natural

        We would argue that there is no meat in the world that is as gentle on animals, requires so little of the earth's resources to produce, and has such a low carbon footprint as Swedish game meat.

        A healthy alternative

        Game meat is naturally lean and nutritious because the animals live a free range life and graze naturally. This makes for a cleaner and healthier meat choice.
