Recipe - Asian Wild Boar with Noodles


This Glasgow Food Blogger has been off getting experimental this month... the team from Wild and Game recently sent me some wild boar steaks to try as part of their Spring recipe campaign and I've been cooking up a storm in my Glasgow kitchen trying out their Asian Style Wild Boar recipe.

This was super easy (time consuming but worth it, trust me) and we'd never had wild boar before. The long, slow cooking process creates a deliciously tender meat, rich in Asian flavours.  Fancy trying it for yourself?  Recipe and some cook-along photos below for you... to prove how easy this asian style wild boar recipe really is!

Also, did you know, game birds such as pheasant, partridge and grouse contain less fat than chicken, more protein and lower cholesterol, while wild boar is higher in protein and lower in saturated fat than beef? Facts!

“Game is in plentiful supply in the UK but many people still lack confidence when it comes to using it,” says Steven, who co-founded Wild and Game with Michael Cannon a year ago. 
“Our mission is to get more people in the UK enjoying game by highlighting how healthy, delicious and easy to use it actually is.”

Asian Style Wild Boar with Noodles
Serves 2


2 Wild and Game wild boar steaks, cut into bite-sized pieces

Half a medium onion, sliced

1 large tsp garlic paste
1 large tsp ginger paste
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp cornflour
Sesame oil
600ml water


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees centigrade, gas mark 3
  2. Heat some sesame oil in an oven-proof pot, add the meat and cook until browned.
  3. Mix the soy sauce, honey and cornflour in a small jug
  4. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for a couple of minutes, then pour in the soy, honey and cornflour mix. Stir and cook until thickened then top up with the water.

  5. Keep on the heat until bubbling well, then put the lid on and transfer into the oven and cook for 2 - 2.5 hours. Check regularly and top up with water when necessary. You want the sauce to end up quite thick and sticky.
  6. Heat some sesame oil in a wok or frying pan and fry the vegetables for a few minutes – don’t overdo it; you want them to retain their bite.
  7. Add the vegetables to the pot of meat and stir well. Serve with noodles or rice.
