Wild boar medallions have great flavor and are easy to simply sear on the stove. This makes them a good way to try wild boar for the first time.
Wild boar's flavor is slightly sweet and nutty from its diet of foraged nuts and other foods from the forest.
Food & Wine Magazine has called our wild boar “the ultimate sustainable meat” – read the full article. Unlike much of the wild boar on the market, ours isn’t farm-raised—it’s truly wild, trapped in the Texas Hill Country.
The wildness of true wild boar meat gives it a distinct game flavor that farm-raised wild boar simply cannot match. Although similar to domestic pork and farm-raised wild boar, wild wild boar has a deeper color, leaner texture, tighter grain, and bolder taste.
Store wild boar medallions in your freezer until you’re ready to use them, then thaw them completely before cooking.
RECIPES & TIPS
Wild boar medallions can be grilled, roasted, butterflied and stuffed, cut up for sautes and stirfried dishes, etc. They’re adaptable to most cooking dry-heat methods.
Because wild boar is significantly leaner than pork, it is likely to cook more quickly.
The slightly sweet flavor of wild boar pairs well with rich, fruity flavors like red wine, prunes, brandy, and apples. Herbs and spices frequently used with wild boar include rosemary, thyme, and juniper berries.
Recommended Cooking Temps:
The USDA recommends that all wild-caught game be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
