Wild Pig Chile Verde

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds boar shoulder, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 2 cups yellow onion, chopped
  • 8 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 green bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 Anaheim peppers, chopped
  • 3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoons dried oregano flakes
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups fresh tomatillos, skin removed; quartered (or canned / drained)
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add boar and brown evenly. Drain off any fat or liquid rendered during browning. Add 1-1/2 quarts chicken broth and any additional broth or water to cover meat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 2 hours or until meat is tender and breaks apart, but doesn’t fall apart with moderate finger pressure. Drain liquid from stockpot. Add remaining 2 cups of chicken stock and all other ingredients except cilantro. Simmer until peppers are tender. Stir in cilantro and season with salt and pepper to taste.
