Moose - It's what's for dinner!

2 posts in this topic

I had the good fortune to kill a moose with my longbow this past September. Since then, I have been doing my best to eat the meat as fast as I can thaw it out. At the rate I'm going, I will need another Bullwinkle by April!

If you haven't had moose, you are missing out on one of the finest tasting wild game meats available. It's more like beef than anything else and you could easily substitute it for beef in any recipe. Here are a few photos of the fare we've been having at my house lately.

I made this last Tuesday night. Grilled moose ribeye in a morel mushroom cream sauce with a baked potato and fresh corn. There were two ribeyes to a package so I had the other one for lunch the next day

Two days before that I made Swedish mooseballs served over noodles with fresh green beans..

My father would say that this is the only way to fix moose; pan fried with fried taters, gravy and homemade buttermilk biscuits.

My wife love the burritos that they make at Chipotle so I figured out how to make the same thing at home. Ground moose, fresh corn, cilantro, rice, black beans and cheese all rolled up in a homemade tortilla and topped with homemade salsa.

This is probably my favorite so far. I slow cooked a moose roast in a dutch oven and then sliced it very thin. I put it on an asiago cheese bagel and topped it with caramelized onions and homemade horseradish sauce. Then I served it au jus with the drippings from the pan. Elbow licking good!

I made moose chili last night and my wife officially stated that she was a fan of the meat. Now I just need to convince her that I need to hunt them every year!
