These cuts are all easy to cook and very delicious!
Pekin duck (aka Long Island Duckling) breasts are somewhat similar to chicken breasts in size and shape, with a robust dark meat flavor and a layer or intensely tasty fat beneath their skin.
Wild Boar is actually wild & eats a wild-foraged diet. It is humanely trapped in Texas Hill Country, where it is a destructive invasive species (so you're actually helping the environment by eating it!).
Silver Fern Farms Venison is 100% grass-fed & pasture raised free range year round. Farm-raised venison doesn't have the gaminess of wild venison. It's very lean, but still flavorful & tender.
Included in your order will be a packet containing recipes for a Duck & Raddichio Salad, Venison Striploin with Cherry Sauce & Wild Boar Rack with Cider-Glazed Roasted Vegetables, along with shopping & prep lists.
Store frozen meats in your freezer until you need them, then thaw before cooking.
RECIPES & TIPS
Duck breasts are most commonly roasted or seared after first having much of their fat slowly rendered off. Rendering the fat not only crisps the skin delightfully, but it imparts more flavor and moisture to the meat. Rendering is actually quite easy. See How to Render Duck Fat for step by step instructions.
You will end up with a lot more duck fat then you need to cook the breasts, and it can be saved for later use as an alternative to cooking oil or butter, as you would bacon grease. It's one of the most flavorful cooking fats available!
Duck breasts are very versatile, pairing well with a wide variety of other flavors. Ingredients often used with duck include apples, ginger, lemon juice, soy sauce, wild mushrooms, oranges, rich & fruity red wines, green onions, honey, cilantro, star anise, thyme and berries.
Venison striploins are incredibly easy to use, as they're completely cleaned before being packed. All you need to do is season them & grill, sear, or sear then roast to your desired level of doneness (we recommend taking venison no further than Medium Rare, though the USDA recommends cooking to 160°F for safety).
Because venison is extremely lean, it will cook quickly.
Slice the cooked striploin into medallions & serve with your choice of sauces & sides.
You can also cut the striploin into smaller pieces before cooking to speed things up or use it in stir fry, kebabs & other dishes calling for cubes or strips of meat.
Venison is commonly paired with fruit (apples, pears, or cherries), fresh mushrooms, juniper berries, thyme, rosemary and red wine.
Wild Boar Racks:
Wild boar racks are an excellent roasting cut that can then be sliced into chops after a short rest. If you're in a hurry, you can also slice into chops and then grill or sear them separately.
Before cooking wild boar racks, consider brining them for an extra flavorful and moist finished dish. Because wild boar is substantially leaner than pork, it will cook more quickly.
Wild boar meat 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 the always game meat friendly juniper berries.
