Nothing beats a simple and delicious stir fry for a weeknight meal, particularly with wild game! Here, I took thin slices from the bottom round of a wild pig, marinated them into tenderness with a Chinese velveting technique, then stir fried them in a hot wok along with green beans, garlic, chilies, and a classic Chinese stir fry sauce. You could use top round, eye of round, sirloin, sirloin tip, or loin for this stir fry rather than the bottom round I used, and you can even change up the meat to pretty much any wild game, whether that be bear, turkey, duck, venison, goose, etc. You could also change up the vegetables, replacing the beans with asparagus, broccoli, snow peas, snap peas, or Chinese greens; just follow the same procedure with whatever vegetable you end up using.

Wild Pork and Green Bean Stir Fry

The wild pork I used in this recipe came from a pig I shot at the Harvesting Nature Wild Pig Hunting Culinary Camp in Texas.
