Introduction: Slow Cooked Wild Boars Head
I got a 160lb Wild Florida Boar but could not figure out what to do with the head as there was not a recipe I could find that dealt with the head so I came up with a multi-stage process.
Step 1: Preparing and Cooking
The head was whole, so I had it split at the butcher. I then threw in on a grill to get some charcoal flavor and burn off any extra hair. Its best if the heat is high just to get a burnt color and not fully cook it.
In a Large pot pour in a quart of water. You can add a tablespoon of salt, 2 bay leaves, 10 pimento seeds, and bring to a boil. You will not steam the heads until you see the meat separate from the bone. Cool the head and then cut them into small pieces. I took the ears, tongue and eyes and fed my do which he enjoyed. The choice is up to you.
I added the meat,2 idaho potatoes diced, 1 small onion, 1 clove garlic pepper, 1 hot pepper(you choice, i added a ghost pepper) and 2 tablespoons Cajun or Creole seasoning.
Slow cook for about 5 hour or until tender, stirring occasionally. Enjoy.
