PR’s Porky Pine Soup

Ha! Bet that got your attention!  Well let’s clear the air right up front—NO, this is not a recipe for porcupine.

(But seeing as we’re on the topic of them, did you know that you can eat a porcupine raw? As disgusting as that may sound to you, for me it’s a gem of knowledge I’ve carried for years, and truly appreciate knowing about.  Because it’s such a slow moving and practically blind animal, it’s fairly easy to sneak up on and dispatch with a strong blow to the head or a sharp stick.   It can literally be eaten raw.  If you were stranded in the wild and possibly injured, a porcupine could be the difference between life or death for you.  Oh there’s so much more to share, but I’ll save it all for another day….)

Instead, picture the delectable combination of sweet pork and pineapple, and you’ve got my extremely yummy Porky Pine Soup! This tastes spectacular with wild boar, but it works just fine with every day pork from the market, too!


  • 1lb cooked cubed or shredded pork (I usually cube it)
  • 1chopped onion
  • 1 chopped green pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • 1 can Rotel
  • 1 20 oz container of pineapple chunks
  • 3 C water
  • 1t chili powder
  • 1t cumin
  • 1t turmeric
  • 3C cooked rice blend *


*Rice blend:

  • 2T butter
  • 3 cubes chicken bouillon
  • 1T garlic powder
  • 1T tumeric
  • ½ C Quinoa
  • ½ C Frekah grains
  • ½ C Barley
  • ½ C Orange lentils
  • Cook in the rice cooker—this will give you at least 3 cups cooked and a little left over.


  1. Saute’ the onion and garlic for 10 minutes
  2. Add soup, Rotel, green pepper, and water and heat to low boil
  3. Add pork and turn heat down to simmer
  4. Add chili powder, cumin and turmeric, continue to simmer for 10 – 15 minutes
  5. Add the pineapple.
  6. Fold in the rice and continue to simmer until heated through
  7. Dish up into soup bowls and enjoy!


Serves 6 – 8 people
