[Costco] 20 x 4oz Wild Boar Medallions with Bacon

late at night and came across this on costco.ca. Never tried wild boar, but what can go wrong with bacon wrapped around it..:)

based on a quick google search of wild boar cost @ 23/lb, this should be a fairly hot deal, especially with the $25 masterpass deal ($84, for almost 5 lb of good cut meat)

Make sure you cook the meat to the correct internal temperature otherwise you risk trichinosis

With today's farming practices this is not much a concern. In fact, those of us that sous vide, we cook pork pink! That being said, sous vide uses a time/temp log scale to effectively pasteurize it. Although Grandma might not eat pink pork!

Decent article here:

I do not believe trichinosis risk should be an issue here; despite the moniker "wild" in their name (Wild Boar Medallions), these are not from wild animals, but rather from farm-raised boar, which gets government inspected (both before and after slaughtering, similar to farm-raised pigs).

Agreed. I've been cooking pork to 145 degrees. The new accepted safe temperature

Has anyone order these before? Assuming they are frozen? Cryovac'd? Individual?

This seems like a great Christmas dinner for you and 19 close friend... Or I guess 10 regular sized people who eat 8oz steaks.

Nope. It comes alive, in a big crate. Pack of bacon is stapled to the side.

Hope you are handy with a butcher knife.
