Wild Boar Mini Roast
Wild boar meat comes from truly wild animals that are trapped – not hunted – in Texas. The animals forage and root, eating a natural diet of grass, roots, nuts, fruits, acorns and grains. Wild boar meat is similar to pork, only darker, redder and more intensely flavored. Lean wild boar meat lends a unique flavor to your favorite recipes.

Cooking & Serving
Cooking Methods: Roast, Pan-Roast, Braise, Stew, Barbecue
Cooking Tips: Cut from the knuckle, our wild boar mini roast comes in a roasting net to hold its shape. You can roast as-is, or remove the netting, season all-over and tie with butcher’s string. Removing the net allows you to pan-sear to get a nice brown crust before finishing in the oven or braising. You can also cut the roast into smaller chunks before cooking, if desired. Because it’s so lean, a quick brine, barding with bacon, or frequent basting will help to keep the roast moist. If using the net, don’t forget to cut it off and discard before serving. Cook to a finished temperature of 155-160 degrees F and rest before cutting. Download our Wild Boar Cooking Guide.
