Ingredients

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil

3 lemons, juiced

1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons chopped garlic

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh rosemary

Salt

Freshly ground black pepper

8 wild boar chops

1/4 cup minced shallots

1 pound fresh chanterelle mushrooms, cleaned

Fava beans, shelled, blanched and skin removed

2 cups veal reduction

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves

8 thin strips of preserved lemon

Directions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk 1 cup of the oil, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of the garlic, and rosemary. Whisk well. Season with salt and pepper. Season both sides of the chops with salt and pepper. Place the chops in a shallow glass pan. Pour the marinade over the chops. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, turning every couple of hours. Remove and bring the chops to room temperature. Preheat the grill. In a large saute pan, over medium heat, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the shallots and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Saute until wilted, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the remaining garlic and fava beans. Continue to saute for 1 minute. Add the veal reduction. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley. Set aside and keep warm. Remove the chops from the marinade. Place on the grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side for medium rare. Remove from the grill and allow the chops to sit for a couple of minutes before serving. To serve, spoon the ragout in the center of each plate. Lay two of the chops in the center of the ragout. Garnish with a couple of strips of preserved lemon.
