Pork & Wild Boar Scotch Eggs With Dijon Dipping Sauce

Pork & Wild Boar Scotch Eggs With Dijon Dipping Sauce

Scotch eggs might sound like they’re from Scotland, but they’re actually quintessential English pub food. They’re really popular largely due to their convenience - they can easily be sold ready made in grocery stores and convenience stores. But eating one of those versions doesn’t do the Scotch egg justice. To truly experience how wonderful Scotch eggs are, you need to make your own. Traditionally they’re usually made with just pork sausage wrapped around the eggs. I did half ground wild boar to add more dimension to the flavor of the meat. I like my yolks a little runny, so if you like yours more hard boiled just cook them a couple minutes longer.

Free Range Heritage Pork Raised On The Rio Grande River


Our heritage pork is raised completely free range on a beautiful small farm here in Northern New Mexico. Each animal has approximately one half acre of land. These pigs roam as they please, swimming in the Rio Grande river. The farm is a rehabilitation center for those struggling with drug addictions. The center features agricultural therapy through caring for and interacting with the pigs. These animals get daily interaction, treats and live a completely stress-free life. Living stress-free is important for all animals, but particularly essential for pigs because they are quite sensitive. This pork is USDA Certified and grain fed with a nutritionally balanced diet. The pigs consume a nutritionally ideal ratio of crude protein, crude fiber and plant fiber. This pork is completely hormone, steroid and antibiotic free, just like all our other meat.

Wild Boar: One Of The Most Sustainable Meats You Can Eat


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.

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or 1 tablespoon fresh)
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley (or 1 tablespoon fresh)

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon half and half

  • 1 cup finely crushed cornflakes
  • 1 quart safflower oil

For the Dijon dipping sauce:

  • 2 cups Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Pork & Wild Boar Scotch Eggs With Dijon Dipping Sauce - Beck & Bulow

Instructions:



  1. Place 8 of the eggs into a small pot and fill with cold water until the eggs are completely submerged. Bring the pot to a boil. Watch closely because as soon as it reaches a boil, you need to reduce the heat to low, set a timer and simmer for four minutes. This will give you eggs that are perfectly soft boiled with a runny yolk. Use a slotted spoon or tongs to transfer the eggs to a bowl with ice water. Submerge and chill for 10-20 minutes. Carefully and gently peel the eggs and set them aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pork sausage, ground wild boar, mustard and nutmeg. Season as desired with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Use your hands to mix just until combined (take care not to overmix). Divide the mixture into 8 evenly sized balls.
  3. Take three small bowls. In the first, lightly beat the remaining two eggs with the tablespoon of half and half.
  4. In the second bowl, season the flour with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir to combine. In the third bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, corn flakes and herbs.
  5. Place a small piece of plastic wrap flat on a clean counter. Put one of the balls of meat in the center, cover with another piece of plastic wrap and then use your hands to flatten it out until it’s large enough to wrap around one of the eggs and cover on all sides. Repeat with the remaining meatballs.
  6. To assemble the scotch eggs, remove the top piece of plastic wrap from one of the sections of meat. Take one of the peeled eggs and coat it in flour, shaking off any excess. Place it in the middle of the meat. Wrap the meat completely around the egg, then remove the plastic wrap. Coat the outside of the scotch egg in flour, then egg, then the breadcrumb and cornflake mixture. Then dip once more in the egg and the breadcrumbs and cornflakes to make a double coating. Repeat the process with the remaining eggs, and set aside on a plate.
  7. Fill a large, thick bottomed pot or Dutch oven with about three inches of safflower oil. Heat over medium-high heat until the oil reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit. If you don’t have a thermometer, check it by flicking a few breadcrumbs in. If they sizzle and turn golden without burning, the oil is the right temperature.
  8. Fry the eggs, working in batches so they have plenty of room. Cook each batch for about 6 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and crisp all over. Set the fried scotch eggs on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  9. To make the dipping sauce, simply whisk together all the ingredients.
  10. Serve and enjoy! Scotch eggs are good cold too, so they make great leftovers.

Nori Furikake Wild Boar Stir Fry With Brussels Sprouts

Nori Furikake Wild Boar Stir Fry With Brussels Sprouts

In Japan, nori furikake is the go-to seasoning for just about anything - akin to how we use salt and pepper here in America. This earthy, salty seasoning is absolutely delicious and consists of dried seaweed, kelp, salt and nutty sesame seeds. You’ll love the flavor it gives your food and it’s especially tasty in stir fries. You can find nori furikake seasoning on the Asian cooking aisle of most grocery stores (it’s also readily available online). Our ground wild boar meat makes this stir fry rich and satisfying. Chopped brussels sprouts add vibrant green color and crunchy yet tender texture.

Instant Pot Hoisin Meatballs With Bison & Wild Boar

Instant Pot Hoisin Meatballs With Bison & Wild Boar

Meatballs have got to be one of the most versatile and convenient things that I make. They reheat well, can go on top of just about anything, and there’s endless possibilities when it comes to flavors, seasonings and sauces. These hoisin meatballs are the perfect sweet and savory combination of Asian flavors. Hoisin sauce, also known as Chinese barbecue sauce, is awesome for cooking (it also makes a delicious condiment). It’s wonderfully salty, slightly sweet and rich in flavor. A little bit goes a long way. It makes for a really tasty sauce for these bison and wild boar meatballs, and they’re incredibly quick to make using an Instant Pot. You can have these ready in less than 30 minutes from start to finish. Serve on top of rice, on their own, over noodles or any other way that strikes your fancy!

Free Range Bison Raised On Our Beautiful Ranch


Our bison live free range on 10,000 beautiful acres here in New Mexico, or roam freely on our carefully selected partner ranches. They are pasture raised and never administered any amount of hormones, steroids or antibiotics. These are powerful, strong animals that live essentially wild with minimal handling. There were once 60 million bison roaming North America, and we hope to see their numbers increase back to even 1 million during our lifetime. By increasing the demand for ethically sourced bison meat, we can help to bolster their population. The more people that want to purchase this nourishing and nutrient dense meat, the more farmers will be encouraged to raise bison. This directly helps to increase the number of herds which assists in providing genetic diversity for the population.

Recipe: Mini Meatloaves With Ground Bison & Wild Boar

Recipe: Mini Meatloaves With Ground Bison & Wild Boar

The crispy top and edges of meatloaf are my favorite part. That’s why I love these mini meatloaves so much - each serving includes the maximum amount of crispy outer crust. They also keep really well as leftovers and are excellent reheated in the oven. I used ground bison and ground wild boar meat, my favorite combination for meatloaf. They both have delicious flavor and the wild boar has just enough fat to pair perfectly with the lean and tender bison meat. I love using a combination of ketchup and barbecue sauce on top of the meatloaf because it gives me the option of using a barbecue sauce that has a little kick to it. That sweet and spicy topping really makes meatloaf taste amazing. The mini size is fun and convenient - kids and adults alike will love these!

Italian Wedding Soup With Bison And Wild Boar Meatballs

Italian Wedding Soup With Bison And Wild Boar Meatballs

I always thought that Italian wedding soup was served at weddings. As it turns out, this soup actually gets its name from the “marriage” of the flavorful meat and greens. It’s a poetic culinary concept and a beautiful name fit for such a delicious dish. The meatballs in this soup are small in size for easy eating out of a spoon. Orzo pasta and plenty of vegetables create wonderful texture. A combination of chicken stock and bison bone broth give rich layers of meaty flavor and the perfect amount of Italian herbs make this soup completely irresistible. You might even want to make a double batch.

Super Quick & Easy Lasagna With Bison And Wild Boar

Super Quick & Easy Lasagna With Bison And Wild Boar

Lasagna is definitely one of my favorite foods, but I hardly ever make it because it’s time consuming. This recipe is the perfect easy, quick way to make lasagna - the secret is using pre made cheese raviolis instead of layers of lasagna noodles. I like to use a combination of ground bison and ground wild boar meat. The flavors are so good together and the fattier wild boar perfectly complements the lean and tender bison meat. You can whip this up as a quick dinner and enjoy the delicious results in about an hour total (and around 40 minutes are hands off time in the oven). If you don’t have bison broth on hand, just substitute water. It’ll still turn out delicious!

How To Make Meatloaf In A Slow Cooker Or Instant Pot

How To Make Meatloaf In A Slow Cooker Or Instant Pot

Meatloaf is one of my all time favorite foods. It’s really easy to make and you’d be hard pressed to find a meal that’s more satisfying or comforting. Meatloaf is quick to prepare, but can take up to an hour to cook in the oven. Luckily, there is a way to prepare this meal during the day and have it ready right when you get home from work. If you have a slow cooker or Instant Pot, you can cook your meatloaf while you’re away from home and simply finish it with a few minutes under the broiler right before serving. This recipe uses bison and wild boar, which is my favorite combination for meatloaf. The fattier wild boar meat balances well with the lean bison and the flavors of both are excellent.

How To Make Meatloaf In A Slow Cooker Or Instant Pot - Beck & Bulow

Free Range Bison, Raised The Way Nature Intended


Our bison live free range on 20,000 beautiful acres here in New Mexico, or roam freely on our carefully selected partner ranches. They are pasture raised and never administered any amount of hormones, steroids or antibiotics. These are powerful, strong animals that live essentially wild with minimal handling. There were once 60 million bison roaming North America, and we hope to see their numbers increase back to even 1 million during our lifetime. By increasing the demand for ethically sourced bison meat, we can help to bolster their population. The more people that want to purchase this nourishing and nutrient dense meat, the more farmers will be encouraged to raise bison. This directly helps to increase the number of herds which assists in providing genetic diversity for the population.


Ingredients:



  • 1 pound ground bison
  • 1 pound ground wild boar
  • 1 large onion, finely diced
  • 12 oz herbed bread crumbs
  • Approximately 1.5 cups milk, as needed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce of choice
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar (optional, depending on the sweetness of your ketchup and barbecue sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

How To Make Meatloaf In A Slow Cooker Or Instant Pot - Beck & Bulow

Instructions:



  1. Use heavy duty aluminum foil to line the crock pot, making sure it also covers two of the sides (this will allow you to remove the whole thing later and finish under the broiler). Lightly grease the foil.
  2. Before cooking, let the ground meat sit out at room temperature for approximately 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat with a little bison tallow or avocado oil. Add in the diced onion and cook slowly, stirring often, until it becomes golden brown, tender and fragrant. Set aside to cool.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground bison, ground wild boar, bread crumbs, cooked onion, milk, eggs, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Using your hands, mix together just until combined. Take care not to overmix as it can cause the meat to become tough.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the ketchup, barbecue sauce, coconut sugar, mustard, apple cider vinegar. Season with freshly ground black pepper to taste. Set aside.
  6. Shape the meat mixture into a loaf and add it into the prepared crock pot. Pour ½ of the ketchup mixture over top. Put the lid on the crock pot and cook on low for approximately 6 hours. If using an Instant Pot, turn on the Slow Cook function and plan for a slightly longer cooking time (check after 6.5 hours).
  7. When the meatloaf has finished cooking, remove it from the pot using the foil liner. Put it on a baking sheet, then pour more of the sauce over top. Reserve some of the sauce for serving.
  8. Broil for 3-4 minutes, or until it’s hot with a sticky, shiny appearance.
  9. Serve and enjoy with more sauce over the top as desired.

Recipe: Wild Boar, Tart Apple & Cranberry Stuffing

Recipe: Wild Boar, Tart Apple & Cranberry Stuffing

This wild boar stuffing is what wintertime dreams are made of. The sweet tart combination of crisp green apples and dried cranberries make this seasonal delight a total crowd pleaser. Our ground wild boar has an amazing, complex flavor profile that I love using in a huge variety of recipes. This stuffing is super easy to make and is the perfect accompaniment to any dinner, but fancy enough for Christmas dinner or any other special wintertime occasion. It would also go great with any of our other ground meats, although personally I particularly love it with wild boar.

A Delicious & Sustainable Meat Choice


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.


Expertly Butchered For Exceptional Meat


People are always asking us about the best ways to eat wild boar. If you’re used to eating pork, the nutty and delicious flavor of wild boar meat will blow your mind.

Homemade Spaghetti With Bison & Wild Boar Meatballs

Homemade Spaghetti With Bison & Wild Boar Meatballs

In my opinion, homemade spaghetti basically requires making meatballs. Okay, yes, it’s still delicious even if you just put ground meat in the sauce. But there’s just something about meatballs that makes spaghetti so incredibly good. Whenever I make something that involves ground meat, I love experimenting with different combinations of our ground selections. Bison and wild boar is one of my all-time favorite duos, and once you try it out you’ll know why. Treat yourself and your family and make this for dinner - it’ll be one of your new favorite recipes.

Instructions:



  1. Place the pieces of crustless bread in a bowl, then pour the ⅔ cup cold water over top. Let it sit for a few minutes to absorb and get soft. Then mash with a fork and set aside.
  2. Place the (completely thawed) ground bison and ground wild boar in a large mixing bowl. Use a wooden spoon to break the meat up into pieces. Add in the ¼ cup of grated parmesan cheese, minced garlic, egg, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix just until combined.

  4. Form the mixture into meatballs (aim for about 1.5 inches in diameter). Coat the meatballs in flour, gently shaking off the excess. Set the flour coated meatballs aside on a plate.
  5. Heat bison tallow or avocado oil in a dutch oven over medium heat. Cook the meatballs in batches until they’re golden brown all over. They will cook all the way through later in the sauce. Set the browned meatballs aside.
  6. If desired, brown onions at this stage to add into your sauce.
  7. Add the tomato sauce to the dutch oven along with the bay leaves if using. Cook until boiling, then add in the meatballs. Cover halfway and cook at a simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring the meatballs occasionally.
  8. In the last five minutes, add in fresh basil, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Meatballs should be cooked all the way through and tender. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
  9. Cook the spaghetti noodles according to the instructions on the package. Drain, then put the spaghetti back in the pot and pour the sauce and meatballs over the top. Toss to combine.
  10. To serve, garnish with grated parmesan cheese and fresh basil as desired.

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.

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.
