Wild game

Fave is whatever I'm eating @ the time. I'm blessed with a wife and son who both cook like angels. (Well, OK, Son cooks more like a roulette wheel) but everything they make is VERY tasty. I can do a little w/ a Weber or a Dutch oven or an omelette pan myself if pressed. We eat prety well.

I love venison backstrap and slow-cooked feral hog. If you've never had a small S. Texas feral hog put in the ground and cooked right by the Mexican ranch hands down on the Callaghan ranch, and rolled up in homemade tortillas, then you're missing out. But I have to say, my alltime favorite is quail. Seasoned up just right and grilled...mmm, the best.

fav meat

I'd say it's a tie between Mn. moose and Wyoming antelope. Both tender and good. Makes it easy for me to go on my hunting trips.

Read it and weep!

Mrs Meek's latest recipe for leftover deer roast will absolutely bring tears to your eyes:

For each serving

Half an onion, diced about 1/4 inch size
One potato, diced about 1/2 inch
One clove of garlic, chopped fine
One cup of leftover deer roast, diced about 1/2 inch size
One tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
One cup of water
Salt and pepper
Mustard
Whole wheat toast cut into points
Rosso Di Montalcino wine


Sautee onion and garlic in olive oil until barely brown then add potato and sautee for 2 more minutes. Add deer meat and 1/4 cup water and simmer on low for 15 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Add mustard to taste. Serve over toast points, with a glass of your favorite Italian red wine.

(If you can't drink the whole glass of wine with dinner, this is a good wine to drink with chocolate afterward.)

Mrs. Meek's recipie

Meek--Sounds lasciviously luscious--hope you treat your bride right--but one little problem occurs to me, namely: From WHERE do you get leftover venison roast???

Venison for me. Good 'ol Michigan whitetails are hard to beat.

However.....I had a Michigan bear loin roast that was unreal...lightly smoked.
I also had slow cooked BBQ Beaver that was amazing. served on grilled onion rolls with a sweet coleslaw.
Rabbit Gumbo is good.
Quail with a port wine reduction and roasted hazel nuts is good.
Smoked duck and pumpkin ravioli with a wild sage cream sauce is good.
Roasted Canada Goose with sweet potato/eggplant gravy is good.
Grouse stuffed with apples and cranberries and morel mushrooms is good.
Woodcock breasts grilled with bacon and fresh herbs is good.
hmmm...steelhead trout is good...then again so is walleye, perch and bluegill.
Pheasant is always good.
Is Elk and Moose venison? if it aint, then i like that too.
uh..wait a minute...what was the question?

Elk, Pronghorn, Corn-Fed Missouri Whitetail are my favorites. Of course, I'll eat almost anything, especially if I kill it. Had moose from a big old NE Washington bull and although it tasted as close to beef as any meat I've eaten, it was so tough we ended up grinding most of it for hamburger and sausage. Heard that caribou is as good as anything but I've never tried it. For non big game, pheasant and ruffed grouse are hard to beat.

Elk for 4 legged critters...reindeer ain't bad either.

Quail followed closely by pheasant then Dove for our feathered feasts.

I don't do rodents, nor will I eat (though I have tried some): Armadillo, skunk, possum, coon, jack rabbit, turtle, snake,.

Lots, of others I haven't tried but would like to.

Nutria

Speaking of rodents, the other day on TV, they had cooked up over an open fire some homegrown Louisiana nutria and were raving about how good it is. This was that crazy American alligator/shark wrestler dude with the long hair, and he was trying to get the nutty MTV2 punks to eat it, so he may have been kidding about how good. :dunno: Anyone tried Nutria?

Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep was "the" best wild game I have ever eaten. Dad shot one when I was in Highschool. My mom and sisters wouldn't touch it, which worked out good for Dad and I as we got to eat the whole thing.

Man was that good.

The Best

Elk is the best. My eldest daughter got married two years ago, my wife fed the in-laws roast Elk. They never knew, thought it was great beef.

I ate a dog once, when I was a Marine, in a country far far away. After eating c-rats in the jungle, it tasted great!
