This is the premiere cut of our superbly sweet, nutty, and juicy free-range wild boar. To enjoy, we encourage you to simply quick sauté or grill over high heat.
It doesn't get more free range than this. Our wild boars are actually wild, and are humanely cage trapped in Texas then brought to USDA-inspected processing plants. The wild boars eat greens, native roots, acorns, and pretty much any agricultural crop they can access. As a result, farmers and ranchers in Texas are fully supportive of the law that encourages hunters and trappers to cut down on the population of these nuisance hogs. This works to your advantage, because even in a state as large as Texas, they can’t eat all the wild boar!
Wild boar meat offers a distinctive taste—lean, and pork-like, but more intense, with darker color and tighter grain. Like pork, it is adaptable to many recipes and spice combinations. Robust enough in flavor to stand up to a strong red wine, or think medieval and pair with strong ale in a tankard.
The tenderloin is, as its name implies, a tender cut of meat which makes it easy to cook—marinate it or rub with your favorite spices and then grill or roast it.
