How to Make Peggi's Poke Salat'


  • 1First 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.
  • 2Drain poke well & place in cast iron skillet, if you have one, with the bacon grease. Heat through.
  • 3While 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.
  • 4Serve with homemade pepper juice (vinegar in peppers)
