Wild Boar Shoulder (5-6 lbs)
Physical Description: Each order includes a package of wild boar shoulder, averaging about 7-8 lbs per package, providing a substantial amount of flavorful meat.
Cooking: Wild boar shoulder is exceptionally suited for slow cooking recipes. It can be prepared through roasting, grilling, smoking, or braising methods. Thanks to their natural diet consisting of nuts, fruits, roots, and tubers, wild boar meat possesses a unique flavor profile. With its lower fat content and darker coloring compared to pork, it delivers a delightful combination of sweetness and nuttiness. Due to its natural leanness, we recommend cooking wild boar at lower temperatures to prevent dryness. Ensure proper thawing before cooking to optimize results.
Nutritional Information: Wild boar is an excellent source of protein, providing ample amounts of monounsaturated fats and essential minerals like zinc. It is also rich in iron, sodium, niacin, selenium, thiamine, vitamin B6, and zinc. In comparison to pork, wild boar is significantly lower in fat and cholesterol.
Hunting Practices: Our wild boar operations are located just south of San Antonio, Texas. We directly source wild boar from trappers throughout the Texas Hill Country. To minimize stress, our wild boar are humanely trapped and transported under the supervision of trained veterinarians. Each animal undergoes USDA veterinary inspection, ensuring compliance with all necessary requirements. Being truly wild, these boars roam freely without the use of added hormones, steroids, or antibiotics. While a considerable portion of the United States' wild boar is exported to Germany, Italy, and France, this delectable meat is gaining popularity in America. We are thrilled to deliver this high-quality meat straight to your doorstep.
