This Wild Boar Burger is a great way to cook burger patties! This high protein recipe is fast and easy to make - and a perfect way to make a good burger loaded with flavor. Grab your favorite burger toppings and enjoy.
Making a good burger during the summer months is key. Not only does nothing quite hit the flavor notes quite like a grilled burger patty, but those fresh and in-season toppings just add to the experience and flavor. You can find the ground meat at your local grocery store or talk to someone in the area to see if this is something that a local butcher offers.
This is a great protein option that has so much flavor! I think that this has more flavor than regular pork and is a great texture for cooking burgers. I've made these low fat wild boar burgers for years, and people always compliment how delicious they are.

Ground wild boar - You can buy this ground already or grind it on your own. Check with your local store or butcher to see options.
Salt - Salt enhances the natural flavor of the meat.
Garlic powder - We enjoy the flavor of garlic in our burgers.
Onion powder - Onion powder gives a more mild onion flavor than use raw onion.
Ground black pepper - Pepper also enhances the other flavors of the wild boar burgers.
How to make Low Far Wild Boar Burgers
Step One: Add all the ingredients to a large bowl, and mix well.
Step Two: Form a wild boar patty that is about 3 ounces in size. Repeat until all the meat is used.
Step Three: Preheat the grill to high heat. Once the grill is hot, put the burgers on and grill for about three minutes per side.
Step Four: Top your burger with your favorite toppings. Enjoy.
Add more ingredients to your meat mixture - The great thing about cooking with wild game meat is that you can add more flavors. If you want to add cayenne pepper or smoked paprika, both could be delicious options to do.
Pile high the toppings - There are so many burger toppings that you can enjoy. Sauteed mushrooms, lettuce, tomato slices, dill pickles, various types of cheese, and sliced red onions are just a few options to pick from! Even a naked burger is a good one!
At what temperature is a wild boar burger safe to eat?
The internal temperature of these burger patties needs to be at least 150 degrees to consume safely. The best way to check the internal temperature of burgers is to insert the tip of a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the burger.
The reading will show you the burger's internal temperature so that you know exactly when it's time to remove the burger from the grill.
Can I cook board burgers in a cast iron pan?
Yes, you can. When I'm cooking a burger on the stove in a skillet, I always like to add a little bit of melted butter for flavor and sticking worries. I then cook the burgers over medium-high heat. You can also use a grill pan so that you get those grill marks on the burgers that you might be looking for. This is optional but a great way to cook burgers inside without having the need to heat the grill.
What else can I use boar meat for?
Lots of things! You can make a killer wild boar meatloaf with a few simple ingredients too. The main thing to keep in mind is that you want to be sure to cook the boar meat all the way through, no matter what recipe you use it in. We also have a recipe for Wild Boar Sausage.
Can I grind my own boar meat?
You can. All that you need is a food processor or even a meat grinder to be able to make your own burger meat. You can do this not only with boar meat but with beef for beef burgers, buffalo meat for buffalo burgers, and more.
People will often do this because the actual prices for buying meat and then grinding it on their own are a lot cheaper. (and many think it has better taste, too!)
Can I cook boar burgers in advance?
You can! Just grill the burgers and then store them in the fridge in an airtight container. For the best flavor and taste, eat the leftover burgers within two days of cooking them.
