Jerk Wild Pork

Jerk Wild Pork is one of the more unique tasting things I have made before, and I highly recommend it if you have wild or regular pork on hand!

I have had a back ham from a wild boar my husband shot, in our freezer for close to half a year now. I have been trying to think of different recipes that might mask certain off flavors that sometimes accompany a 100+ pound wild boar. It worked great with the Pork Dumplings I made a couple of months back, but it was not as good in other recipes I attempted. Thinking of cuisines with strong aromatic flavor profiles normally brings me to Asian food, but something else that came to mind was Caribbean!

I love jerk chicken and the strong normally spicy flavors that accompany it. Furthermore, I had never really seen wild pork used in a jerk recipe, but I had a feeling it would be delicious.

Another side I wanted with it was some mango salsa. I have been wanting to try mango salsa for a while now. I always see pictures of this bright sweet dish on Instagram. The combination of the flavorful pork with the sweet and slightly spicy salsa on top of a soft Hawaiian bun was absolutely delicious! If you have a hog that you think might be a little off, this is the perfect recipe for you. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did!
