Braised Wild Boar

Cooking wild boar might sound intimidating. Perhaps you don’t see it very often, or have never seen, at your local grocery store. In fact, this past weekend was the first time I remember seeing it at our local Wegmans. We had to try it.

Wild boar is lean, so you have to be mindful of how you cook it. We kept ours moist with a blended red wine that really added a savory element to this otherwise sweet and nutty meat. Cooking wild boar was certainly an experiment, but we think it came out well and we hope you will try it!
