Sauteed Maui Wild Boar, Baby Shiitake, and Pohole (serves 2 as part of a shared meal)


While on Maui our friends invited us over for a BBQ and we had an abundance of fantastic food including wild boar and venison hunted by one of them. There was so much food that I took some delicious meat home. I purchased some fresh baby shiitake and pohole (fern shoots that grow in the Maui rain forest) and sauteed them with the BBQ wild boar meat. This is a tasty way to extend another meal with some leftovers! Thank you Curt and family for your hospitality and friendship!

Check out my other pohole recipe: Sauteed Maui Pohole and Beef Heart

Sauteed Maui Wild Boar, Baby Shiitake, and Pohole (serves 2 as part of a shared meal)

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp grated garlic clove
1 tsp of grated ginger
1 bunch of pohole (fern shoots), washed, trimmed off a little of the ends cut into 1-inch lengths
4 oz baby shiitake mushrooms, wiped or gently washed, trimmed off the ends
About 6 oz of cooked wild boar meat, sliced into 1/4 inch widths
1/4 cup pork broth
1 Tbsp soy sauce
A pinch of brown sugar

Method:

1) Heat a pan with oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and ginger. Saute about 30 seconds. Try not to burn the garlic.
2) Add the pohole and shiitake mushrooms. Saute about 7 minutes or until everything is a little wilted.
3) Add the wild boar slices and broth. Season with soy sauce and brown sugar. Cook for about another 2-3 minutes or until the meat is heat through.
