Moose Meat

A guy at our church shot a moose not long ago and was asking if anyone wanted any (there was something like 626 pounds of meat!). Jeremy, of course, jumped on the chance. I mean, when will we get the opportunity for some free moose meat again? Jeremy told him he would take "a little bit" of meat. He gave us close to 9 pounds, not quite what I'd call "a little bit", but as Jeremy pointed out, it is a little bit when compared to 626 pounds.

We ended up with steaks, ground meat, and breakfast sausage. Our first attempt at cooking it was to make a stew. I used a recipe for beef stew and it turned out great! We both thought that the moose meat tasted like beef. If we didn't know better, we would have thought that is what we were eating.

Now we just have to figure out what we're going to do with the rest of the meat. Jeremy is wanting to grill some of the steak before it gets too cold. I'm thinking a chili with the ground meat might be good.

Awesome! I can't imagine 600+ lbs of meat, wow. Thank goodness it tastes good and not too strong.
