Wild Boar / Thanksgiving Recipes

Baked Green Bean Casserole With Wild Boar Or Duck Bacon

Baked Green Bean Casserole With Wild Boar Or Duck Bacon

Odds are, if you grew up celebrating Thanksgiving you’ve probably had the classic green bean casserole with crunchy French onions in it. That one is great, but I thought it would be nice to have an updated take on green bean casserole this year. This version has Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (you could also use coconut aminos or soy sauce), a little coconut sugar, butter, garlic and - most importantly - bacon. Whether you use our wild boar bacon, duck bacon, or both, you’ll find that it takes green bean casserole to a level you never realized was possible.

Wild Boar Is One Of The Most Sustainable Meats Available


Our Southwestern wild boar roam the forests, foraging their natural diet. They love to eat berries, nuts, roots and tubers which give their meat its unique and delectable flavor profile. They’re trapped under the supervision of specialized veterinarians and butchered by a small scale, species specific facility. Just like all of our products, we care about where this meat comes from. Wild boar are actually an invasive species to North America, and their population continues to grow. They ruin crops and disrupt the growth of endangered plants in forests by digging in the soil. When we eat humanely trapped wild boar meat it helps to protect our food supply and forest ecosystems.


If you’ve never tried our wild boar bacon before, get ready to be obsessed. Bacon is already known for being one of the most delicious foods in existence. Our wild boars roam the forests of the Southwest, foraging their natural preferred diet of roots, nuts, berries and tubers. This gives our wild boar meat a nutty, complex flavor profile that has so much depth and dimension compared to conventional pork bacon. It’s also slightly less greasy than conventional bacon and contains more vitamins and minerals.

Duck Bacon: Your New Favorite Indulgence


Duck bacon is actually meat cut from the breast of the duck where there is a large amount of fat. Nonetheless, it’s incredibly similar in texture and flavor to more familiar varieties of bacon. Our ducks are raised in quiet, spacious barns on a small group of farms in rural Indiana. They are often raised by Mennonite or Amish farmers, and are lovingly cared for on family farms. They are White Pekin ducks, bred for their tender, mild flavored meat that is preferred by most people with an Americanized palette. This duck meat easily adapts to a wide range of flavor profiles and cuisines.


Ingredients:



  • 2 pounds fresh organic green beans, trimmed if desired
  • ½ pound wild boar or duck bacon, cooked and roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Bison bone broth, if you have it on hand to cook the beans in
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions:



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Move an oven rack to the middle of the oven.
  2. Bring the bison bone broth (or, alternatively, salted water) to a boil in a large pot. Add in the washed and trimmed green beans. Simmer for approximately 15 minutes. Strain the water out and place the green beans in a baking dish.
  3. Add the cooked wild boar or duck bacon in with the beans. Then, melt the butter in a small bowl. In the same small bowl, add in the coconut sugar, liquid aminos, garlic powder and freshly ground black pepper. Stir to combine. Pour over the green beans and bacon. Toss to distribute everything evenly through the green beans.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 25 minutes, or until tender and cooked all the way through.
  5. Remove from the oven, give it a stir and serve immediately.

Ethically Raised, Delicious Elk Meat


Our elk live completely free range, roaming on 20,000 to 100,000 acre ranches. We source from two locations, one being the Rocky Mountains of the United States. The other source that fit our strict quality standards was an elk ranch in the pristine mountain valleys of New Zealand. They wander as they please, grazing and foraging as they engage in all of their natural instinctive behaviors. As with all of our meat, these animals are never administered hormones, antibiotics or steroids of any kind. Elk is some of the most delicious and healthy meat you can eat, considered by many to be the most heart healthy meat in existence. Chefs love using our elk for its delicate flavor and outstanding tenderness.
