Wild Boar Shank - avg. 10 oz

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Wild Boar Shanks are very flavorful, but because of the high levels of connective tissue, can be tough if not slow cooked. During braising or slow roasting, the tissue melts into the braising liquid as gelatin, which gives any dish featuring the shanks extra body and mouthfeel.

This Wild Boar is truly wild caught in the hill country of Texas. It has a slightly sweet, nutty flavor thanks to the animals' natural diet of acorns, hickory nuts, pecans and roots. Wild Boar has a richer and more robust flavor than farmed “wild” boar or conventional pork. All natural, no hormones or antibiotics. Wild Boar meat is leaner than conventional pork, so most cuts will cook more quickly.

Twenty four ~10 oz Shank, ~ 15 lbs total. Origin: Texas
