BBQ Wild Boar Saddle with Cassis Sauce

June 17, 2014

3 cups red wine
2 stalks celery
4 gloves garlic, salt and pepper
1 carrot diced
1/2 onion quartered,
1 cup pineapple juice

Pour the red wine, vegetables, garlic and season. Add the meat and refrigerate for 24 hours.

2 lb. boneless wild boar saddle
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup cassis liquor
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 cup port wine
1 cup blackcurrant
2 cups demi-glace
2 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 tablespoon olive oil
salt and black pepper to taste
2 tablespoon blackcurrant jam
2 tablespoon olive oil



Preheat the grill to medium heat. Remove the meat from marinade and pat dry with paper towel. Trim the silver skin off of your meat and lightly season with salt and pepper. You may choose to apply some of your favorite rub or fresh herbs, just go easy on it. Then lightly oil and grill for about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to an oven proof skillet, brush with the blackcurrant jam and place in the preheated oven to roast until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 140 F, about 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. While you are waiting you can make a quick pan sauce.

Caramelize the sugar in a casserole dish. Deglaze with cassis liquor. Add port wine, blackcurrant, demi-glace and allow to reduce by half over a moderate heat. Add the tablespoon of balsamic, whisk in the butter and remove from heat. Slice the meat across the grain and arrange on a platter. Pour the cassis sauce and blackcurrant over and serve with a side dish such as mashed potatoes and buttered haricot vert (French for green beans). Enjoy!!!
