Wild Boar Pacific Rim Sliders #SundaySupper

There are different kinds of 'food' hunters. Wild game, forager, and shopper. What you're into, where you live and possibly how you live might help define which kind of  hunter you are. Or maybe you fall under more than one category.

Sir Sportsalot doesn't hunt wild game. He just get's wild watching a game (hence the name "Sir Sportsalot"). I've never gone foraging, although I'd love to. It does intimidate me a little though.... being able to identify what you're picking...knowing the difference between what you can and can not eat...that sort of thing. So that puts me in the category of a shopping hunter. Hunting for that one, hard to find, ingredient. Driving to specialty stores, exploring markets in ethnic neighborhoods, just to try something new, exciting and authentic.

Well, I didn't really have to go far for this wild boar. I just happened to stumble upon it locally and it sorta ended up in my cart with very little struggle. Easy prey if you ask me. Much easier (and safer) than actually hunting a wild boar. And it comes so nicely packaged, too.

Wild Boar Pacific Rim Sliders

Printable Version

4 oz mushrooms, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
2 teaspoons fresh, grated ginger
1 lb ground wild boar
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
12 slider buns

2 teaspoons oil
2 cups fresh bean sprouts
4 green onions, sliced diagonally
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce

Wasabi Aoli
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon wasabi sauce
1/2 teaspoon teriyaki sauce

Preheat the oven to 400'F

In a food processor, combine the mushrooms, onions and ginger and process until finely chopped

In a medium sized bowl, combine the wild boar, chopped mushroom mixture, teriyaki sauce and bread crumbs. Mix until just combined.

Press the mixture evenly into an ungreased 11 x 7 rectangle baking dish.

Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool slightly.

While the meat is baking, let's get everything else ready:

Heat the 2 teaspoons of oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add the bean spouts and green onions. Allow to cook until just beginning to wilt and the bean sprouts are barely opaque. Stir frequently. Add a tablespoon or 2 of water if needed to prevent sticking. Add 2 tablespoons of teriyaki sauce and continue heating until the sauce is slightly reduced, about a minute or two, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, wasabi sauce and teriyaki sauce. Mix until thoroughly combined and chill until everything else is ready to serve.

Once the meat is cooked and slightly cooled, carefully drain off the excess grease and gently remove onto a cutting board. Slice into 12 even squares

Spread the Wasabi Aoli onto your slider buns, place a patty on there and then top with your sauteed bean sprouts.

The wild boar flavor is wonderful. Slightly sweeter than your typical pork. I love each component from this slider separately, but when they're combined....wow!! So fun, so delicious and simple to make. And now I can say I've eaten wild boar!

Now tell me....what's your favorite food to 'hunt' for?

Here are some recipes for ingredients that are hunter or foraged for...enjoy :)

  1. My nephew shot a wild boar a couple of years back and his father took it to be processed into sausages which they then kindly shared with the relations. I thought it was pretty tasty so I'd love to try your sliders. You made me laugh about getting them into the cart without a struggle. :)

  2. Oh my goodness your post made me smile. And I've never wanted to try wild boar more than I want to after seeing this.

  3. Sent by @familyfoodie... great post. I love to forage for berries! (Wild Black Raspberries)

  4. I've never seen wild boar around here...but I've honestly never looked! If it tastes a lot like pork, my family would love your sliders :)

  5. Very nice!!! We have wild boar in Alabama, I have been told. I'll be going hunting this year - maybe one of them will be spotted through my scope ;)

  6. Wow, wild boars sliders, I have never seen wild boar here. It is so perfect for our theme. Great recipe!!

  7. Never had boar before but it looks so rich! Would be a great change up

  8. I more of a hunter-shopper type also! I love ordering any kind of boar when we're out to eat, but I will have to "hunt" this down the next time I'm in the grocery store! Thanks for sharing!

  9. I'm so jealous, I can never find ground wild boar in my regular supermarket! Occasionally there are some precooked sausages. Which are good, don't get me wrong, just not as much fun. I'd love to make your sliders sometime, they look and sound so delicious!

  10. I know there are areas overrun with wild boar. Sounds like a tasty solution!

  11. These sound so amazing! So excited to try this #SundaySupper recipe!!

  12. What a great find! I also like the concept of pairing it with the aioli.

  13. Goodness what a find! What a great way to use it.
