Take a walk on the wild side of pork. We'll admit that we just like saying “shank.” And when you add wild boar, it has a certain ring. It brings to mind regal feasts on long tables in medieval halls. Nothing says lord or lady of the manor quite like a platter of wild boar shanks.

However you imagine them, the flavor is exquisite. Wild boar is pork-like, but more intense, with darker color and tighter grain.

When you braise meat on the bone, especially a cut like the shank, with all its connective tissue, the result is a dish thick with gelatinous sauce, simply oozing with intense flavor. It takes time and heat to make that miracle of transformation occur, which gives you a few hours to do something else as the house fills with wonderful aromas.

Cooking & Serving

The deeply flavored meat of this cut (from just above the knee joint of a wild boar hind leg) is very lean, high in gelatin and is best prepared using a slow, moist cooking method such as braising. This allows all the connective tissues and marrow to break down and create a thick sauce as it cooks. Be sure to have potatoes or bread to soak up all the delicious juices.
