October KFC Monthly Special: Antelope Bites 4oz
Our antelope comes from small Texas farms where the nilgai antelope are raised. The nilgai is the largest Asian antelope and is ubiquitous across the northern Indian subcontinent. Antelope are related to goats.
"Nilgai" means "blue bull" in certain East Indian dialects. They were originally introduced to Texas in the 1930's by ranchers who decided that South Texas was too tough an environment for cattle. The search for an animal that could thrive in the South Texas climate and produce a high quality, lean meat led ranchers to the nilgai antelope.
The meat has a mild flavor with a good texture, much like veal. It is extremely low in fat, averaging well under 1% for most cuts. These are large animals, weighing an average of 280 pounds on the hoof.
Ingredients: Hand-cut Texas nilgai antelope shoulder.
Not a complete meal. Bites are meant to be added to food or a treat, not a meal themselves.
