At the country inn Reitling we were allowed to have a look over the shoulder of the creative kitchen crew and learned how to make a venison wrap. Thanks for the opportunity!
The meat of the saddle of the wild boar is trimmed. That means cords and other disturbing parts are cut off.
Afterwards it is cut into slices which then are cut into quarters so that you get small and flat pieces.
No we have all the ingredients.
In a pot onions are heated and peppers are added and roasted.
The meat is roasted in a pan.
The rest of the chopped vegetabls is added, deglazed with the red wine and flambéed.
Meanwhile you can decorate the plate with a little bit of salad and add the previously prepared tzatziki. Cream and spices are added to the vegetables and simmered.
Then the vegetables are put onto a wheat tortilla. Some rocket is put on top.
The meat is added.
The tortilla is elaborately folded and decorated on the plate.
Some french fries with it… Ready!!
We tried it of course. It was very yummy!! The vegetables are viscid and gets an aromatic taste from the wine. It goes well with the wild boar. The tzatziki adds a freshness. The different aromas are a good match and complement each other.
Don’t be angry if you won’t get the “Wild Wrap” as it is called when you go there because it is not offered. Those young chefs have so many ideas that the menu changes very often. But we are sure there will be another delicious dish! Just try!
