How to Make Peggi's Poke Salat'


  1. First off, if starting with fresh poke:
    Pick when leaves are young. If some are larger with large stems in them, strip leaves from stems.
    Parboil it 3 times, using clean water each time & boiling each time for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Drain poke well & place in cast iron skillet, if you have one, with the bacon grease. Heat through.
  3. While still heating on medium heat, slowly drizzle in the beaten eggs, stirring constantly, until all eggs are in. Cook only long enough to cook the eggs. About 1 more minute, I would say. Salt good. You want to taste it.
  4. Serve with homemade pepper juice (vinegar in peppers)
