Wild Game Rub
Are you ready to "up your game" in the kitchen? Wild game, that is.
Whether you are a seasonal hunter (or are friends with someone who is a hunter), this is a great time of year to try your had at cooking with wild game like pheasant, wild turkey, duck or venison.
Why wild game? For one, game meat is out of the ordinary, something different to learn to cook and serve. What’s more, wild game is pretty much the definition of paleolithic eating - lean, low in fat, high in protein - and generally free from antibiotic or hormone treatments or additives.
But what can you do if you don’t have the inclination or time to hunt for wild game? Although it technically doesn’t count as “wild game” if it’s not caught, you know, in the wild, some traditionally wild game animals (such as rabbit, elk and bison) are now raised on farms and ranches, making those meats available for purchase from farmers’ markets and grocery stores.
Intense flavor for sophisticated tastes. Wild game has a stronger, more intense flavor than blander-tasting domesticated meat. Some stronger-flavored herbs and spices may be the best match for your game meat recipes.
Add a generous spoonful of Wild Game Rub to your marinade of red wine, olive oil, or lemon juice, or use on its own as a dry rub.
Whether your recipe is wild or farm-raised, Wild Game Rub is sure to become a staple for your hearty dishes.
Wild Game Rub contains: Spices, Garlic, Salt, Chiles, Onion, Turbinado Sugar, and Juniper Berries.
