Found a pack of wild hog backstraps hiding behind some veggies my wife stuffed into the "meat freezer".

Decided to go old school. A little flour, a lot of black pepper, some salt, a little Tony's.

Flipped em into a hot skillet with some olive oil and butter. (next time I am using regular veg oil). Fried up till brown and crispy with the centers at 143'. Plated while I carved off a big hunk of home made crusty french bread. Shoveled a couple scoops of green beans from the garden and had an awesome old school home cooked/produced meal.

Now I am full as the fat kid from Willy Wonka when he found the river of chocolate. Man that was good !

* Note... the flavor of the olive oil was slightly over powering the delicate flavor of the wild pork. Hog had been gorging on acorns and has a fantastic slightly sweet nutty flavor.
If you can't trust people with freedom, how can you trust them with power ?

Olive oil's smoke point is really too low for an effective sear most of the time. I hear coconut oil is great.

Sounds good.

Clarified Butter is my go to "oil" for searing. Might want to try that next time.
