A friend gave me about five pounds of moose the other day. Other than just pretending it's venision, I have no clue as to how to cook it. Suggestions would be highly appreciated. Things I've considered:
- moose chili
- moose stew
- shaved moose caesar salad
- moose mousse cous cous
Daughter of an avid hunter here: I find moose to be more gamey than venison, so when I prepare it, I use it in dishes where it's not the centerpiece- you don't say if it's ground or not, but if so, use in place of ground beef in chili or tacos. Would also be good in stew- I think you're on the right track.
One Thanksgiving my dad fried moose in the same grease he fried the turkey in.
He used to get his grease from a coffee shop that made beignets. They gave him the grease they were going to throw away anyway. It tasted like beignets, but it was free.
That's the Thanksgiving I discovered that even McDonald's is closed on Thanksgiving in Baton Rouge, and wound up eating at 7-11.
