Tips for Cooking Wild Boar
- Many people think that wild boar is tougher than domesticated pork. It can be just as tender, but it depends on how it is cooked. This is one of the reasons for browning the meat before baking. The browning helps to seal in the juices and keeps the pork from becoming too dry.
- Wild pork also has a different type of fat than domestic pork. It is more of a soft fat than what is found on domestic pork. Trimming this fat from the meat that is being prepared is desirable because it is not a healthy fat.
