1Prepare beans ahead of time in accordance with their packaging and place in medium-large crock-pot on high heat.
2Warm large saucepan. Add wild boar meat that has been roughly chopped and brown thoroughly. Remove meat and add to crock-pot, reserving grease.
3Toss first four ingredients into boar meat grease (half the grease if using beef) and sweat until onions are opaque.
4Add Garlic, spices and Cilantro and allow to saute 2-3 more minutes. Throw it all in the crock-pot + tomatoes.
Spice tip: Start with the recommended amount and adjust as it works in the crock-pot.
5You have a couple of options here.
Leave crock on high, stirring often and enjoy in an hour,
Turn on medium (low if you have two settings) and walk away. Let cook a minimum of 3 hours. The longer it cooks, the bolder the flavors.
