Wild Boar

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!

Bringing Back The American Bison


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.

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.


Ingredients:



  • 1 tablespoon bison tallow
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ⅓ cup bison bone broth
  • 1 tablespoon double concentrated tomato paste
  • 1 ½ pounds ground bison
  • 1 pound ground wild boar
  • ½ cup Japanese panko bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup barbecue sauce

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.

Zuppa Toscana With Heritage Pork Sausage & Wild Boar Bacon

Zuppa toscana is a traditional Italian soup originating in Tuscany. It’s really easy to make and full of flavor with a little kick (if you desire) from crushed red pepper. Our heritage pork mild Italian sausage was practically made for this recipe, and it’s a match made in heaven with our wild boar bacon. This flavorful soup is delicious, creamy and satisfying with thinly sliced potatoes and chopped kale. It’s a real crowd pleaser and perfect for soaking up with breadsticks.

Our Best Selling Wild Boar Bacon


If you’ve never had the opportunity to try our wild boar bacon before, you’re in for a real treat. Bacon is already known for making any dish extra delicious, and wild boar bacon is even more craveable than the bacon most of us grew up eating. We can barely keep it in stock because it’s so popular. These boars roam the forests of the Southwest, foraging for 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. It’s tastier, healthier and on top of that it’s one of the most sustainable meats you can eat.

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 - like all of the meat we offer.

Recipe: Thai Moo Ping Skewers With Wild Boar Shoulder

These Thai moo ping skewers have an amazing, exotic flavor that will transport you directly to the tropical jungles of Thailand. The wild boar shoulder is sliced thinly against the grain and marinated overnight in an incredibly flavorful mixture to make tender, mouthwatering meat. The skewers should be filled generously with the meat as close together as possible to create a relatively uniform shape. This will help the meat grill evenly.

The Sauce Is Optional But Amazing


While you cook the meat, coconut milk or cream is constantly brushed on to create moisture and rich creaminess that make moo ping so unique and delicious. The dipping sauce is an extra step that is totally worth the time. Sure, these will still be great if you dunk them in store bought Thai sweet chili sauce, but the nam jim jaew sauce is an explosion of flavor that truly adds to the moo ping experience. The toasted rice powder can be found at Asian grocery stores, or omitted if necessary. It adds a nutty, rich taste to the sauce that you’ll love.

There are few foods more comforting and satisfying than mashed potatoes. And who knows how to make potatoes better than any other country in the world? Ireland, of course. These colcannon potatoes are mashed potatoes taken to the next level with mouthwatering bacon and garlicky cabbage whipped in. Aside from making it a more nutritionally well-rounded dish, the combination is downright delicious. Colcannon has a long history in Ireland, and was traditionally served on Halloween. Legend has it that there were hidden trinkets inside the potatoes to tell your fortune - often thought to predict marriage and other life events.

Delicious Baked Ziti With Wild Boar & Elk Meatballs

This baked ziti with meatballs is cheesy, full of flavor and also really easy to prepare. The meatballs can easily be made in advance, or just use leftover meatballs if you have some on hand. Extra meatballs can be frozen or used for meal prep, so making a big batch definitely has its perks. I chose to combine elk and wild boar. Wild boar has a higher fat content to balance the lean elk meat, making a tender and juicy meatball with amazing flavor when the two combine. There’s nothing like gooey, cheesy baked ziti with meatballs straight out of the oven when it comes to comfort food.

Elk That’s Raised The Way Nature Intended


Our elk live completely free range, roaming huge expanses of land on family owned 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 meat for its delicate flavor and tender texture.

Delicious Baked Ziti With Wild Boar & Elk Meatballs - Beck & Bulow

Instructions:


Note: This will make lots of extra meatballs to freeze or enjoy later. The meatballs can be made in advance if desired, or reduce the recipe. Only ½ lb meatballs total are needed for the baked ziti.



  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  2. In a large cast iron skillet, sauté the onion over medium heat until translucent, golden brown and flavorful. Set aside to cool slightly. If making the ziti directly following the meatballs, sauté all of the onion for that portion of the recipe as well.
  3. Mix all the ingredients for the meatballs, including the onions, together in a large mixing bowl. Using your hands, mix just until combined.
  4. Form into meatballs, about 1 ½ inches in diameter.
  5. Bake the meatballs in the preheated oven, in batches if necessary. Bake for approximately 20 minutes. Wild boar should always be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit.

  3. Combine the tomatoes, tomato paste and seasonings in a saucepan with the 2 cups of water. Bring to a simmer and cook for approximately 5 minutes. Stir in the cooked onions and remove from heat.
  4. Add one cup of the tomato sauce into the bottom of the baking dish, spreading to make an even layer. Add half of the uncooked ziti pasta in a layer on top, followed by another cup of sauce.
  5. Add meatballs on top, followed by half of the mozzarella cheese. Spread another cup of sauce over the cheese, followed by the rest of the pasta, followed by the rest of the sauce.
  6. Cover with foil and bake for approximately 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, uncover and add the remaining mozzarella cheese on top. Bake, uncovered, for an additional 15 minutes to finish.
  7. Remove from the oven and rest for 15 minutes before serving. Garnish with chopped fresh basil. Enjoy!

Feijoada (Brazilian Black Bean Stew) With Wild Boar & Bison

Feijoada (Brazilian Black Bean Stew) With Wild Boar & Bison

Feijoada is the national dish of Brazil, and it’s just as delicious as you would think. Traditionally made with pork, I’ve created a version with wild boar shoulder, bacon and bison sausage. It’s an easy way to feed a crowd and chock full of flavor. If you can find it or want to make your own, traditionally this stew is topped with farofa, a fried mixture of cassava flour and bacon. I’ve left it out for simplicity’s sake, but it makes a really tasty addition.

Feijoada (Brazilian Black Bean Stew) With Wild Boar & Bison - Beck & Bulow


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. It’s so much more flavorful and satisfying than conventional pork. Customers tell us all the time that they find themselves unable to go back to eating conventional pork after trying out this meat.

In addition to the unbeatable flavor, wild boar meat offers a multitude of health benefits that really outshine conventional pork. It’s lower in total fat and calories while offering more omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. We are big believers in the advantages of eating wild meat and the nutritional profile of wild boar is a perfect example of this. Our wild boar meat is unparalleled in flavor because we work with small-scale, species specific master butchers who know how to properly process this meat.


Feijoada (Brazilian Black Bean Stew) With Wild Boar & Bison - Beck & Bulow

Free Range Bison That Roam Our Beautiful Ranch


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.

Lunch Recipe: Greek Souvlaki With Wild Boar Tenderloin

Lunch Recipe: Greek Souvlaki With Wild Boar Tenderloin

Souvlaki is basically like the Greek version of a kebab. It involves giving the meat a lengthy soak in a flavorful marinade and then grilling the tasty chunks on skewers. Then the skewers are served inside pita bread with fresh (or grilled) vegetables and tzatziki sauce drizzled generously over top. Often available as satisfying street food in Greece, souvlaki is portable, quick and delicious. It’s most often served with pork, chicken or beef, but I chose to recreate authentic Greek souvlaki with our wild boar tenderloin. Although you don’t really need to marinate the meat for a full 24 hours, you’ll be glad you did if time permits. However, if you’re making these on the fly and time is short, marinating for 30 minutes or an hour will be just fine.

The Perfect Recipe For Slow Cooked Wild Boar Osso Buco

The Perfect Recipe For Slow Cooked Wild Boar Osso Buco

Osso buco is a great choice for even the most inexperienced cooks. It’s virtually impossible to mess up. The longer you cook it, the more tender it gets. The flavor is incredible. Being in the slow cooker category of cuts of meat, osso buco, or leg shank, comes from muscles that get a lot of use. This means that the meat is incredibly flavorful but quite tough - that is, until it’s slow cooked to tender perfection. If it’s not so tender it’s falling apart when you check for doneness, simply cook it longer. The flavors meld together beautifully in the dutch oven (you could also make this in an Instant Pot or crock pot). Since the leg shank is cut horizontally across the bone, there’s even more complex and rich flavor added from the melted bone marrow.

Instructions:



  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Let the wild boar shanks sit out for approximately 15 minute at room temperature before cooking.
  2. Season the osso buco generously on both sides with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Dredge them in the flour, shake off the excess and set aside.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of bison tallow in a large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Sear the wild boar shanks, forming a flavorful crust on each side (work in batches if necessary). Set the seared shanks aside on a plate.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium and add the rest of the bison tallow to the dutch oven. Cook the chopped parsnips, onion and garlic until tender.
  5. Add the red wine to the pot and cook for a few more minutes. Add the can of tomatoes, crushing them with a wooden spoon or your hands, and one cup of bison bone broth. Then add the herbs, tomato paste and lemon zest. Stir to combine and cook for approximately 5 minutes.
  6. Add the seared wild boar shanks back into the pot. Nestle them in so they are mostly covered by the sauce. If necessary, you can add more bone broth to create more liquid.
  7. Put the lid on the dutch oven and cook in the preheated oven for 2 ½ hours, or until the meat is fork tender. Check halfway through to see if more liquid needs to be added. Serve over mashed potatoes if desired. Enjoy!

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!
