Our Nilgai antelope is richer in flavor and lower in fat and calories than other more familiar forms of meat. Also known as pronghorn, antelope is one of the best tasting game meats available, and our gourmet Nilgai shoulder roast is the perfect cut to prove it! With a tender texture, a mild flavor, and a fine, velvety grain, antelope are often compared to veal. Sold singly, each of our boneless Nilgai antelope shoulders weighs in at approximately five pounds, so you have plenty to go around! Rolled and netted for ease of preparation, our Antelope shoulder is a versatile and delicious cut you’ll find yourself coming back to again and again. Also available in packs of five, buy them in bulk and keep several on hand in your freezer!
Categorically similar to chicken, antelope is one of the healthiest protein sources you can find on the market. Low in fat and cholesterol and high in protein, antelope is also a great source of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients. With more omega-3s than a salmon fillet and less fat than a skinless chicken breast, antelope is not only one of the most flavorful and satisfying meats but a veritable superfood.
Completely grass-fed and finished, our Nilgai antelope are raised on the brushland of small sustainable ranches situated throughout southern Texas and Alabama. These areas of the country offer an environment similar to the Nilgai’s native Indian and Nepalese homes. Imported here at the beginning of the twentieth century, our Texas-raised antelope have thrived thanks to the hot climate and limited rainfall. Considerably more mild than antelope raised in colder climates, our Nilgai store almost no fat thanks to the warm and balmy weather. This results in milder tasting meat as the fat of wild animals is where the oft abhorred 'gamey' flavor comes from. Enjoy some of the most refined and ultimately delicious game meat of your life with our Nilgai Antelope.
