A terrific dish from central africa.
- 2 lbs wild boar (or pork cut into bite-sized or serving-sized pieces)
- salt (to taste)
- black pepper (to taste)
- 2 onions, chopped
- 2 tomatoes (peeled, chopped)
- 1 cup peanut butter (natural or homemade)
- oil (for frying)
- Heat a few spoonfulls of oil in a large pot. Add the meat and fry it until it is browned but not done. Reduce heat. Add water, salt, and pepper and simmer for about half an hour.
- Add the tomatoes and onions and contine to simmer until the meat is done and becoming tender.
- Remove some of the liquid and mix it with the peanut butter to make a smooth sauce. Add this to the meat-tomato-onion mixture.
- Continue to simmer on a very low heat until the meat is very tender (30 mins to 60 mins depending on cut).
This is a terrific dish. So easy, not very many ingredients and fabulous taste. At first I thought maybe it needed some heat (like cayenne) and discovered that it was great without it. I used boneless pork chops; they only took about an hour from beginning to end. I trimmed off all of the fat first. Since we don't have good tomatoes in the store, I used two smallish ones from a can. Pork in a peanut sauce is a very wonderful, savory dish.
