Wild Boar Chops
Hillview Heritage Pork does it again with their Alberta-raised wild boar chops. Our favourite thing about wild boar is that it's leaner than traditional pork and packed with more protein than beef (and it tastes like a cross between the two). Boar chops are cut from the loin, a piece from the middle to backside of the boar with the rib bone still attached. It's a versatile piece that's low in fat and high in protein. Compared to a boneless chop, the bone means it'll cook a bit slower but is also less likely to dry out if overcooked.
COOKING TIP: There's so much you can do with these wild boar chops - pretty much anything that a regular pork chop can do. They can be seasoned and put on the grill or marinated and baked. If marinating, we recommend starting with some soy sauce, crushed garlic, thyme sprigs - then add your favourite flavours. Pop them in an oiled baking pan and into the oven until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F. You can even broil them at the end if you want to crisp up the outside a bit further.
