This recipe was emailed in from Leslie , who has been buying Wild Game for many years.
Preheat oven to 240 C. Pat the Wild Pork Belly dry & season the flesh side with pepper & half the salt. Sprinkle the sage leaves on the bottom of the metal baking dish (do not use glass baking dish as it might shatter when you add the milk) & put the pork on top, flesh side up. Season the top with the remaining salt.
Roast for 20-30 minutes at 240 C until the flesh is starting to blister. Watch closely for burning.
Pour the milk around the meat to come about half to two thirds of the way up the sides of the Wild Pork. Reduce the heat to 160 C & roast for a further 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is melting tender. Check the levels of the liquid during cooking & if it has evaporated add a little more to the pan.
Remove the Wild Pork from the oven, lift it out of the dish and allow to cool. Discard the liquids (they will break into curds).
For easy cutting , place the meat flesh side up on a chopping board and use a heavy, sharp knife to cut it into slices about 3-4 cm thick.
Serve warm or at room temperature with Roasted Pepper Pest if desired.

What Our Clients Are Saying
"Our son works for Tristram European car dealership in Auckland. He was given a range of your game meat products as a Christmas gift from their major parts supplier. We have really enjoyed your wild pork mince and bacon, and have yet to try your salami. They were amazing! My husband and I are keen and knowledgeable cooks and meat-eaters, and we are very impressed with the overall quality of your meats. They smell clean, cook clean, and the flavour is superb. These days it is very hard to find meat that doesn't release liquid on cooking and your meat is the best. We will be telling everyone about your meat. Thanks!"
