Traditional New Mexico green chile enchiladas filled with dove meat. Easy, really good – and you can sub in any meat if you want.
The Venerable Popper. This little appetizer is a Labor Day tradition — it’s what you do with the first doves of the year, a way to celebrate the return of hunting season.
In this episode of Hunt Gather Talk, I team up with Minnesota’s Sean Sherman, the Sioux Chef, to talk about native American cooking and cuisine, and what everyone can learn by paying attention to how the various Indian groups worked the land for thousands of years.
Easy to make, lip-smacking teriyaki duck legs, finished on the grill. The trick is to braise the duck or, in this case specklebelly goose legs, until they’re tender, then get them sticky and charred over coals.
Wait, what? Chinese venison with cumin? These are words many people think would never go together in Chinese food, but this, done with lamb, is actually a very traditional northern Chinese dish.
The moment I shot my first javelina, I knew I needed to make cochinita pibil. My instincts were not wrong. This is slow cooked, pulled meat (normally pork) marinated in citrus and achiote (annato) paste. Damn good on tortillas with pickled red onions.
Why people hate on javelina I have no idea. They are excellent eating, and the infamous stink gland on their back is very easy to dispense with. Here’s what you need to know about cooking your “skunk pig.”
I would never have thought to do this recipe if it weren’t for my friend Jesse Griffiths in Texas, who does this with his blue-winged teal ducks. My version is different, more desert Southwest, but I am really happy with it. Great for dinner parties or for weeknight portions made on the weekend.
