It simmered for 5 hours. I just shushed it with a fork. It's was tender enough I didn't need to shred with fingers. It's alot more tender than expected. And tasty.Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1376605757.734552.jpg

Bump back to the top cause I made a big batch last night. Remember this recipe when you kill those summer hogs.

Very interested in the venison stock. Was thinking of making some with this year's harvest. Any tips? My wife makes/cans chicken stock, but always interested in knowing if there are any subtle differences with larger/wild game animals

I made the stock with the leg bones of a wt after I had bones them out. Then roasted them with onions, celery, and carrot. After roasting they went into a stock pot to simmer with salt, peppercorns, bay leaves, and thyme. Venison stock has great flavor, it's not as sting as beef stock. My favorite use for it is making black eyed peas.

We love wild pork carnitas! I use a roast and make them in the crockpot. The orange juice sounds good.

One of my cooks from northern Mexico turned me on to using oranges aswell as limes, I think it makes a big difference.

Can you explain the "translucent" and "deglazing" steps? I'm a noob in the kitchen.

Translucent is cooking the onions till the loose most of their color and have pulled a lot of flavor out of them. Deglazing is adding a liquid to the pot to pull the "burnt" seasonings and goodies from the bottom and sides of the pot.

Some pics from today
Browning the pre marinated hog shoulders and hams.

Searing the onions before adding the garlic.

Deglazing with fresh oranges and limes.

Adding the pork back to the citrus juice. I don't have any venison stock since I didn't shoot a dear this year so skipping it. Now to let it simmer. I'll post more pics towards finishing.

Can't forget the beer!

I think he wants to cut down on his cooking time. My sister bought a pressure cooker and I've been amazed at what she cooks in it. She Browns her meat before and throws it in there and bam comes out good. Even foods with gravy.
