Sophie’s provencal stew

For those of you who, like me, have hunting brothers and are given wild boar as a gift, this recipe is pure delight. I prefer it served with homemade gnocchi or polenta.

INGREDIENTS 1 kg of wild boar (steack or chuck), 1 l of Côte de Provence red wine, 200 g of whole mushrooms (button mushrooms or porcini mushrooms are best!!!), 4 carrots, 2 onions, 200 g of bacon, 1 bouquet garni (thyme + bay leaves + rosemary), 3 cloves of garlic, 2 ripe tomatoes, 2 squares of chocolate.

 

RECIPE :

  1. Prepare the marinade the day before: chopped onions + sliced carrots + mushrooms + crushed garlic clove + peeled and chopped tomatoes.
  2. Pour the wine, salt and pepper, bouquet garni, bacon, chopped wild boar and vegetables into a large salad bowl.
  3. Mix well !
  4. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.
  5. The next day, drain the meat and bacon over the marinade (to retain as much of the juices as possible).
  6. Heat some olive oil in a casserole dish over high heat, then add the meat and bacon, and cook until all the liquid has evaporated.
  7. Add the vegetables, marinade and olives and cook on low heat for an hour and a half.
  8. Leave to cool, then reheat over a very low heat for another hour and a half, until the meat is very tender.
  9. At the last minute, add the chocolate squares to bind the sauce and give it a glossy finish. Yummi !
