Recipe: Moose Stew

Monday, September 22nd 2008 by sarah

Being that it is officially Fall (since yesterday, but really since early July,) my thoughts are turning to steam rising from hot bowls of soup, crusty bread, falling leaves, hot apple toddies…that sort of thing.

So, here is a recipe for moose stew (thank you, Ann and Joe) that I made today and shared with the boys. Everything is extremely approximate, as I don’t really like to measure.

Heat olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pot on medium high and add 2 lbs. moose meat. Brown for a few minutes, then add chopped onion, chopped green pepper, salt and pepper. After a few minutes of sautéeing that action, add 1/2 cup water, a couple of cans of beef broth, and some spices: oregano, crumbled bay leaves, and a little cumin. Bring to a boil, then turn it down and simmer for 30 minutes. Add a couple of cubed potatoes, or other root veggies, and the following interesting but delicious-making items: a handful of chopped green olives (sorry, Aaron), a handful of capers, and some chopped dates. Cook until the potatoes are done.

Yum, yum. Oh, so hearty and satisfying.

  3. Fascinating! We started purchasing whole cows from the local farm last year, and it’s working out really well for us. We found a great website with lots of great dishes like this meat recipes to keep us going.
