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.
