D'Artagnan Wild Boar Mini Roast: what did I do wrong?

robotcoupe | Feb 28, 201010:42 AM     9

I'd been eyeing this one for a while and finally decided to take stab at it. The D'Art website had two recipes - slow cooking at 275 for 2 hours and the other, a high-heat sear and then oven roasting at 375 until medium/rosy on the inside. I winged a Mexican-style rub of sorts and then opted for the slow cooking route, hoping it resemble carnitas. At 2 hours it was still super tough, so I cooked it an hour longer, checking often. Then I pulled it out and declared it a failure.

I guess the high-heat method may have been the way to go, since it was a very lean cut. One (of the few) recipes for the same roast I found online said this one was from the knuckle, for what it's worth. Anyone had success with this?
