Wild Boar Osso Bucco
7 packs, approximately 2-3 osso bucco per pack (about 10 lbs.)
Wild boar osso bucco is disks of bone & meat cut from the leg. These pieces are cut 2” thick so they look very impressive on the plate. While osso bucco is too tough to be cooked quickly in a pan or on the grill, when slow braised it becomes luxuriously fork-tender with a delicious full flavor.
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.
Wild-caught wild boar has 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 osso bucco in your freezer until you want to cook it, then thaw as many packs as you need.
RECIPES & TIPS
Wild boar osso bucco needs to be slow braised (either conventionally or sous vide) until tender. They’re then traditionally served with some of the braising liquid as a sauce and a starch (risotto or polenta are excellent choices).
Flavors wild boar pairs well with include red wine, apples, brandy, chestnuts, juniper berries, thyme, sage, and rosemary.
Recommended Cooking Temps:
The USDA recommends that all wild-caught game be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
