Wild Pork help!

nadzalive, Apr 23, 1:12am
I've been given a lump of Wild Pork and have no idea what to do with it. I've tried googling but all the recipes seem really convoluted. What is a relatively easy recipe, I have red wine, cloves, thyme, garlic, can I just marinate overnight in all that and then slow cook it tomorrow?

Yes you can. It's a lot leaner than most meats, so slow cooking is the way to go. Roast it in an oven bag with the marinade for extra softness.
(I'm assuming it's skinned)

You can certainly do that Nadzalive. Long and slow for the cooking.

I cook it with a layers of sage leaves and sliced apple under it, salt n pepper on top a little olive oil as well, but you could add garlic thyme etc.

I use the same as a normal roast pork. So either roast in over or slow cooker. But your marinade would work well too.

Thanks guys! I've got myself an oven bag, I might use an apple and flag the garlic. I think there may even be some sage in the garden I'll chuck in too.

I used to do it in vinigar in the oven before oven bags.

Treat as normal pork - but only those recipes you would use for a tough piece.

Keep basting (or turning in the oven bag/slow cooker) as they are lean meat and will dry out.

Yes it drys out quicker than standard pork. Its lovely. I have a pulled pork recipe for the crock pot if you need it.

Yeeks! I think I ended up overcooking it. (also didn't read last few posts before cooking which may have helped) The gravy I made was good though. Helped with the dryness and my Husband was very kind about it. I'm not sure it's something I'll try again in a hurry. It's the first pork roast I've ever attempted. My beef roast was far more successful. Living and learning:-) Thanks for all your help.

Yes must cook wild pork slowly, very different from the stuff you buy in the supermarket, I always slow cook wild pork, don't add anything extra to it, just make apple sauce once it cooked to have with it
