Wild Pork and Beans with Green Onion Cornbread

0.0 from 0 votes

This dish was created with the wild pork meat supplied from a Paso Robles, CA hog hunt earlier in the summer. I was given a portion of the ribs containing the loin which is commonly known as the back strap. The back strap runs the length of the spine on the top side. I placed the remaining bones and trimmings in a stock pot which will be used for soup stock in later recipes.
