    My father in law bagged a moose in Newfoundland and we have about 400 lbs. of moose meat. We have steaks, chop meat, etc. but I have no idea how to prepare it, nor do I even know what moose tastes like (chicken??).

    Today I am going to take some of the chop meat and marinate it - not sure in what yet - and make sliders.

    Any suggestions otherwise?

    Since the ground meat was too lean, we added goose grease (pet goose) to it and made chilli. Best chilli I ever had!

    A lot of folks will do a pot roast. I find Moose too dry for this, so if you do don't forget to make a nice gravy. Personally I prefer in marinated and/or stir fried in smaller pieces.

    I've always heard moose was really good. Never had it.

    I did get a few elk and I always heard they are a rather similar.

    some tips that worked for elk, I would assume they work for Moose:

    -cook it slower than you would beef
    -it is darker in color and will always appear to be under cooked.
    -if you overcook it, it gets kinda gross, cooking it to med or med-rare is Key!

    Roasts, steaks, ground, sausage, jerky... its all good.

    I like the better cuts grilled just like a beef steak.

    Roasts were good, I think I cooked it the same as any roast but at a lower temp, getting too dry is an issue. Tricked a family member telling them it was a different seasoning on beef, they bought it till halfway through the plate they realized not beef.

    I got really sick of eating elk, and i would slow cook it with bbq sauce using the less desirable pieces of meat.

    If its as lean as elk, you will have to add some fat to it for burgers.


    Enjoy The Moose!

    back to bone stock.
    i hope whomever did the butchering paid attention to the moose parts. trust me, just like a cow and real estate..it is all "location location location". the rump cooks much differently that say the shoulder.

    treat it like beef. taste like beef. really lean beef. it is delicious.

    i want to bowhunt a moose more than anything. congrats to your FIL.
