Team Wild Expert, Cai Ap Bryn shows us how to make a tasty lunchtime treat!
Wild Boar is one of Cai’s most popular meats used at the Wild Food Catering Company. The meat is so versatile, you can rustle up many favourite dishes.
Just a warning this dish does require several hours in the oven, so it would be best to cook it the night before or early on in the day for a afternoon treat. Don’t worry, you wont be disappointed once you tuck in!!
The ingredients used for this particular dish are simple whilst individual, but when combined they help create a really delicious and flavoursome Wild Boar Sandwich!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 kilos of wild boar shoulder meat.
- 2 sliced red onions.
- 4 garlic cloves.
- 2 ½ teaspoons brown sugar.
- 2 teaspoons of Worcester sauce.
- 2 teaspoons of chilli powder.
- 2 teaspoons of salt.
- 1 ½ tablespoons of paprika.
- 1 ½ tablespoons of jalapeno peppers.
- 1 ½ tablespoons of Dijon mustard.
- 250gm tomato puree.
- 200ml cider vinegar.
- 1 pint of water.
- Some bread of your choosing.
You’ll also need a good size oven dish to fit the wild boar shoulder, a large pan for the marinade and some foil.
Now we have everything ready, let’s get started:
- Place the boar shoulder in the oven dish ready for the marinade to be added later.
- Before getting started on your marinade pre-heat the oven at 170 degrees ready to add the boar in a little while.
- Now let’s move onto the marinade.
- Bring the pan to heat and add the sliced onions, pour in some olive oil and keep on the heat until the onions are soft.
- Now its time to make the marinade. Combine all the other ingredients to the pan with a pint of water.
- Bring it to the boil then take it off the heat and begin mixing everything in the pan.
- Continue mixing until the marinade has consistency similar to a thick soup.
- It’s time to add it to the boar meat.
- Spread the marinade over the boar meat evenly and tightly cover the oven dish with foil.
- Put the dish into the oven for 5 hours on a medium heat, the meat will start to fall apart whilst cooking.
- After the 5 hours have passed take the dish out of the oven.
- Use two forks and start pulling the meat apart.
- After you split the joint and the meat is nice and moist you need to choose your bread.
- Add as much of the meat as you like to the bread and dig in!!
And there you have it, a great, easy way to make a lunchtime snack.
Not only are the wild boar sandwiches a good meal at lunch time but there perfect for a quick late night snack to solve any late night munches, it’s also a great pick me up for those long days out at work. You just can’t go wrong!!
