Braised Wild Boar Soft Tacos

Brian - "the best killer in the family" according to Dylan - hunts wild boar in south Monterey County on a regular basis. So, we get boar meat from him every so often. This weekend he gave me a chunk of leg which I braised in a red wine-tomato sauce with fresh oregano and sweet vidalia onions. We feasted on it for dinner last night with steamed broccoli and roasted sweet potatoes.

For lunch today, I revamped the boar for a quick, easy lunch: soft tacos.

shredded meat
small flour or corn tortillas
tomatillo salsa
fresh cilantro

Heat the tortillas quickly on a skillet, layering it with cheese and meat. Once the cheese is melted and the meat warmed through, top with cubes of avocados. Generously spoon on tomatillo salsa and sprinkle with fresh cilantro.
