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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 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)


  1. 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.
  2. Add the tomatoes and onions and contine to simmer until the meat is done and becoming tender.
  3. 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.
