What to do with Wild Boar Tenderloin?

We got a few samples of Wild Boar in and I am bringing a couple of tenderloins home tomorrow. They are bigger than regular pork and a bit darker. They are still in the shrink wrap so, I will inspect it further when I get home after my shift. I'll take a few photos if anybody is interested. Right now, I am wondering how to do it up. I am coming up with a lot of sweet type sauces that GF is scrunching her nose up at. I would suspect that it is leaner, thus, dryer than commercial pork, so you would want to sauce it. Any recommendations?

T'were it me, I would slice it up into medallions, fry it and make an onion gravy. Serve it with garlic mashed potatoes.

It's been a while since we've had wild boar. I used to cook it as a normal store bought chop. Season then cook until it's tender.

It makes great a great sweet & sour pork dish. We'd have that over rice often.

I thought Hoot's suggestion sounded pretty good too.

Now that I think about it. Hubby used to take some of the boar, it didn't matter what the cut was. I know he only left a small amount of fat on it and cooked it in the oven with some water, seasonings covered pan until it was really tender. He then added B-B-Q sauce to it.

When I first read the title of the thread, I thought I saw "bear tenderloin". I'm thinking, "Bear doesn't have tenderloins, does it?"
