The solution to your Moose in the Freezer problem – get cooking!
A little over a week ago, in a post about hunter's survey, we mentioned the the NRA Members Wild Game Cookbook. Apparently it wet the proverbial appetite as there was a call for more. No, not more surveys ... more recipes from the cookbook.
Now normally we don't like to give away all the good stuff at the beginning, but when I found the following formula, well, I just couldn't resist.
So for those of you looking for a big game cooking solution, this one's for you. And you're going to love the first ingredient ... moose.
Moose and Broccoli
- 1 pound moose cut into bite size cubes
- 1 large onion cut into bite size pieces
- 1 pound of broccoli, stalks thinly sliced, florets cut into (you guessed it) bite size pieces
- 1/4 cup of oil
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of salt, pepper and garlic powder
- 1/2 cups of water
First you have to get the moose. After that, the rest is simple.
Combine the soy sauce, cornstarch, sugar, salt, pepper and garlic powder in water and set aside ... we'll get to that later.
Heat one third of the oil in a skillet. Once ready, stir fry the broccoli florets for two minutes. Have a big bowl ready to hold the florets.
Add another third of the oil to the skillet with broccoli stalks and onions. Stir fry this selection for three minutes and add to the florets.
The remaining portion of oil is for the moose. Brown the meat on all sides while adding the seasoning you set aside in the first step. Simmer away until the mixture is thick. Add the broccoli and onions until everything is hot and ready to go.
Best when served over rice.
So when the significant other tells you that you need to get that animal out of the freezer, here's a good way to start.
For additional ideas or solutions, go get the NRA Member's Wild Game Cookbook at our Programs Material Center. As luck would have it, she's going for a rock bottom holiday price of $10.95 plus taxes and shipping.
