Default Moose recipe

My brother gave me a 3+ lb Moose Sirloin Tip roast a little while ago and I'm thinking it's time to cook it up. It's been a long time since I've cooked moose so I refered to my wild game cook books and the Web for some sort of direction.

So far I'm thinking in the slow cooker with
garlic
onion
beef broth
dry mustard
red wine
bacon
dry onion soup mix
cream of mushroom soup
perhaps some soy sauce and worcestershire sauce
and maybe some veggies

Any one have other thoughts? add or drop something from the list

Well, here's what I ended up doing.

Marinated overnight in
1 cup red wine
6 cloves garlic crushed
2 tsp Keens dry mustard
2 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup onion soup mix

In the morning I dumped the works in the slow cooker and added 1 can of sliced mushrooms and 2 cans mushroom soup. Let it simmer all day.

It came out so tender it fell apart when I tried to slice it. The sauce turned out and had just a little tang to it.

Shared a bit with my elderly neighbour who said it took him back at least fifty years when "If you didn't shoot a moose in fall, you didn't have much to eat all winter". He hung it skinned and let it freeze. During the winter, just cut off what was need for the meal and come spring can what was left over.

Sounds good DBA, Glad it turned out well for you! I've never had the opportunity to eat Moose.

Talking Moose Turd Pie

Because I just can't resist:

Moose turd pie:

A logging camp has two rules:

-Any new lumber jack becomes the camp cook until another new lumber jack arrives.

-Any lumberjack who complains about the food becomes the cook.

A new lumberjack arrives, who hates cooking and wants to get outside and chop trees. So, he searches the swamps until he finds a large fresh steaming hot moose turd, which he brings back to the camp, places in a pie shell, and serves for dessert.

The biggest lumberjack in the camp cuts himself a large piece of this fresh hot pie, takes a big bite, roars "THAT'S MOOSE TURD PIE!", then quickly adds "but it's gooood!"
