More on Javelina
Lisa; a friend of mine has sent this recipe and it’s perfect timing with javelina season in full force:
Try this one with Javelina Chorizo. It’s a house favorite in the winter time and easy to fix.
˝ lb Javelina Chorizo
4+ (15oz) Cans S&W Zesty Chili Beans
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
Chili Powder to taste
Red Chili (optional)
1 lb. Pork Stew Meat, cut small (you can substitute with beef or javelina)
1 (15oz) Can Diced Tomato
4oz Can Tomato Sauce
Water for desired thickness
Combine these all in your crock pot. I normally start out in the morning with the uncooked meat and enough water to cover it. Later in the day I add the additional ingredients. You can jazz it up however you like with diced green chiles, bell pepper, fresh tomato or celery. Nobody will ever know that they are eating javelina unless you tell them! Serve with tortillas for that Southwestern flair.
Remember, good tasting javelina meals start in the field. You must take care when field dressing this animal. Especially if you want your family to ever try it again. Here are a few pointers:
These are just a few pointers to try out once you get your animal down. Good Luck!
I also tried the Javelina Sausage Chili recipe with Cajun Javelina. Great spices! Annette Urquides , Wild Cooking Editor for AZOD
