When prepared with care, feral swine makes for a tasty meal
Feral hogs provide hunters with an opportunity to continue to pursue wild game when most hunting seasons for other species are closed.
Although it gets a bad rap from some folks, the meat from wild swine will taste as good as any store-bought pork when it’s properly taken care of and prepared correctly.
Slowly cooked in a juicy, scrumptious sauce, a hunk of wild pig can be effortlessly transformed into a mouth-watering, tender pile of pork. When placed between two halves of a Hawaiian sweet roll, it makes the perfect pulled pork slider. The combination of the succulent meat and sweet bread is enough to bring anyone back for seconds, not to mention, creating this dish is as easy as turning on a crock pot.
PULLED PORK SLIDERS
3-6 pounds wild hog shoulder meat
18 ounces honey chipotle barbecue sauce
1⁄2 cup of diced onion
Pork rub seasoning
Hawaiian sweet rolls
Place a 3- to 6-pound chunk of wild hog shoulder meat into a bowl and soak in cold water in a refrigerator for 12-24 hours. After soaking, drain the water and rinse the meat.
Generously season all surfaces of the meat with preferred pork rub, and make sure to rub the seasoning into the meat.
Place the seasoned meat into a crock pot. Smother the wild pork with honey chipotle barbecue sauce and 1⁄2 cup of diced onion. Cook on low for 10-12 hours.
Pull meat apart using two forks. Add more barbecue sauce as desired and serve between two halves of a Hawaiian sweet roll.
