Default Bear meat

Friend of mine just gave me some bear meat. I have no idea on how to prepare it. Any tips would be apppreciated. Looks like a couple of roasts. But not much fat

Bear meat is dry and tuff. Slice it and make jerky or smoke it.

If itís a roast, put it in your crockpot with a package of Lipton onion soup mix and some red wine. It will fall apart and be like roast beef. We ate a 400 lb bear and enjoyed it all.

Your favorite beef recipe. Bear is awesome! There’s a recipe in this thread for bear pot pie that is delicious.

cook it on low for 5-6 hours. also water, salt and pepper with a bay leaf is a good recipe. I use it for bison, elk and deer and it's my favorite. if it looks like it might be dry you could add a pork roast to it. ladle some of the juice over it when you think about it if you like. I usually add chopped potatoes and carrots about an hour before I'm going to eat.



for leftovers you can shred the pork and bear and mix together, fry or roast some green peppers and make a philly cheesesteak sandwich on a hoagie. or roll it in a tortilla with some sour cream and salsa.


we eat these recipes fairly often because they are simple to make and the kids love em. That said I am not a fan of bear, I shot one in colorado in 2008 that was a 6' 7.5 year old bruin in october. nasty thing. I heard spring bears are better? not sure I want to try any again though. I hope your experience is much better

Here's how I would cook it.

-Go to the store, get ribeye steaks (your choice in size)
-Cook a pile of mushrooms and onions in a large amount of butter. Grill steaks to medium rare (5 min per side).
-throw bear meat in the trash or feed it to the dogs.
-enjoy ribeye.

Have you ever been to a rural landfill to watch black bears? They'll eat the most disgusting, maggot infested waste imaginable. It may taste good when properly prepared but I'll pass thank you.

I'd cube it up and stew it or pressure cook it. Definitely want to cook it until well done to avoid trichinosis.
