bear meat

If it is prepared right it is deliceous The meat is coarse and if not prepared propperly it can be a bit strong As much fat as possible must be removed the fat has a kind of oily taste to it My brother corved some of the one I got last season and gave me a feed and it was very good .This year I have a 1/2 green garbage can full for my son and I . I gave my brother some more this year but he won't have to give me any . Corning recipe try a small batch first in cace U don't like it in a 5 gallon bucket about 1/2 fill it with water add a medium sized potato and keep adding pickling salt and stirring until the potato floats . I like mine with a bout 1/4 cup of mixed pickling spice . Beautiful flavor .Make sure the meat is clean and lean Add the meat to the mixture and put a plate on top and weight it down so all the meat in under water change the pickle after 5 days and make a new batch .Leave for another 10 days . then get into it Can be frozen also I can't wait to get my deer cause some is going to be corned this way Bear steak and chops are good to

bear meat?

We like to cut the backstraps (or whatever) into about 4 inch serving pieces and then cover with strips of bacon, secured with round toothpicks. Put on the grill, turning often enough to cook the bacon.

Serve with garlic toast, salad, whatever.........tastes like well done sirloin steak!

bear meat

Ya got a few dishes of good looking stuff there . That's mouth watering . We're going to have some sausages made . I think w3hat happened to my corned bear was that it was too warm and I didn't get enough fat off it . All the fat should be removed and corn pure meat ,that wasn't the case .I've done deer in the pickle and it was beautiful. I will certainly be doing some deer

Yes, we do it all ourselves. We just got a new stuffer so we bought some beef and pork to test it out. It worked great.
Soon as the seasons are over we will make some out of game meat.

Between 4 of us we have 3 deer and 3 bears in the freezer. Now if we can get at least one elk...........
