Unlike other exotic meats, wild boar must be fully cooked. Also, wild boar is extremely low in fat, which means it can dry out easily when fully cooked. Once you learn to deal with the demands of wild boar meat, it is easy to prepare.
Wild Boar Ropa Via
One of our favorite wild boar recipes, Ropa Vieja (ropa via) came originally from the Canary Islands, a Spanish territory where ships would stop before the long run to or after the long trip home from the Americas. This resulted in a culture that was an interesting mixture of Spanish and Caribbean cultures, and thankfully, food.
