Wild boar stew with pappardelle

Difficulty : Reasonably easy

Cooking time : 2-3 hours

Ingredients 2 persons

  • 800 g Vogely wild boar stew, sprinkled with salt and pepper

  • olive oil

  • handful of finely chopped mixed fresh rosemary and thyme leaves

  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped

  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 carrot, finely chopped

  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped

  • 2 wine glasses Chianti

  • 2 tins of peeled tomatoes (400g)

  • 2 tablespoons pearl barley

  • 400 g fresh or dried pappardelle

  • 100 g butter

  • 2 handfuls of grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat a casserole, cut Vogely wild boar meat into 5 centimetre cubes, leave pigeon whole and divide hare into pieces.

  2. Fry the meat in some oil until brown and then add the herbs with the onion, garlic, carrot and celery.

  3. Reduce the heat and fry the vegetables for 5 minutes.

  4. Add the red wine and let it simmer until the liquid has almost completely evaporated and everything has acquired a beautiful colour and scent.

  5. Then add the tomatoes, the pearl barley and just enough water to cover the meat by 1 cm.

  6. Make a cartouche (paper lid) from baking paper. Wet it under the tap, brush it with some olive oil and place it over the contents of the pan.

  7. Put the lid on the pan so that as much liquid as possible remains in the pan during the stewing. Let everything simmer on the lowest possible heat for 2-3 hours, depending on the tenderness and type of meat of the wild boar.

  8. It's done when you can push the meat off the bone and it falls apart in 'threads'.

  9. Now season everything carefully and allow the meat to cool slightly before removing it from the pan.

  10. Loosen the meat with two forks and discard any skin or bone. Return the meat to the pan over low heat.

  11. The meat is now ready to serve, so cook the fresh pappardelle for 3 minutes in a pan of boiling water with salt and dried according to the instructions on the package.

  12. Drain the cooked pasta in a colander, collecting some of the cooking water to dilute the sauce if necessary.

  13. Take the meat off the heat, stir in the butter and the Parmesan cheese with some of the cooking liquid, this will make it nice and shiny.

  14. Shake the sauce through the pasta and serve immediately.
