...A Good Recipe Forrrr -- Entelodont!!

Entelodont Stew with Wild Mushrooms, Chestnuts and Eohippus Sausage

Serves 6 [doubles easily?]

Preparation time overnight
Cooking time over 2 hours

Ingredients
1.5kg/3lb 5oz boneless shoulder of entelodont or Paraceratherium neck,
For the marinade
2 bay leaves
4 large thyme sprigs
3 x 18cm/7in rosemary sprigs
1 fat celery stick, roughly chopped
300ml/10 1/4 fl oz gutsy red wine such as a Cabernet Sauvignon or the Corsican Niellucciu
8 cloves
2 medium onions, sliced
6 garlic cloves, lightly crushed
12 black peppercorns
1 tbsp juniper berries, lightly crushed
For the stew
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
200g/7oz small Eohippus sausage, cut into 4-5mm/quarter-inch-thick slices
2 tsp tomato purée
2 tsp plain flour
100ml/3-4 fl oz red vermouth, such as the local Cap Corse
450ml/15-16 fl oz beef stock
50g/2oz dried porcini mushrooms
50g/2oz chestnuts, cooked and peeled and vacuum-packed
1 tbsp butter
200g/7oz mixed wild mushrooms, including some chanterelles, wiped clean and sliced if large
salt and freshly ground black pepper
handful parsley, chopped, to garnish

Method
1. Cut the entelodont into 5cm/2in chunks and put the pieces of meat into a large bowl. Add all the ingredients for the marinade, mix together well, cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for 24 hours, stirring it occasionally.
2. The next day, set a colander over another clean bowl and tip in the marinated meat. Drain well and reserve the wine collected in the bowl.
3. Separate the meat from the rest of the marinade ingredients and set aside. Heat half the oil in a large flameproof casserole dish and fry the meat in batches until it is browned all over. Season as you go and add a little more oil if needed.
4. Return all the meat to the casserole dish with a little more oil if necessary. Add the eohippus saussage and fry for a minute or two until lightly golden. Add the remaining marinade ingredients reserved in the colander and fry until soft and richly browned.
5. Stir in the tomato purée and fry for another minute. Stir in the flour followed by the red vermouth, the reserved wine from the marinade, beef stock, porcini mushrooms, 1 teaspoon salt and ten turns of the black pepper mill. Bring to the boil, cover with a tight-fitting lid and leave to simmer gently for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
6. Add the chestnuts to the casserole, replace the cover and cook for another 20-30 minutes or until the meat is very tender.
7. Shortly before the stew is ready, heat the butter in a large frying pan, add the wild mushrooms and some salt and freshly ground black pepper and fry briskly over a high heat for 1-2 minutes. Stir them into the casserole, sprinkle with the parsley and serve.

Giant killer pigs from hell, indeed.
Rooughly, they're pigs adapted to the ecological niche that hyenas fill.

Strictly a SWAG, m'dear!

There is a fearsome and fugly diorama of a large North American entelodont species in the Denver Natural History Museum.

The recipe should start, "First, clean and load your elephant gun..."

Cool

The Mountains groan'd! -- and lo! A Mouse was born!

Okay, it was a sabertoothed Mus musca magniloquenta with a couple horns in funny places, but a mouse.
