The king of the forest, moose. Cooked slowly in oven pot over the vegetable bed. Simple and delicious.
Step 1: Ingredients
Here is what we use:
- Rutabaga or swede (what is the correct name?)
- juniper berry
- bay leaf
- A nice big piece of moose meat
Step 2: The Veggies!
Peel and cut all the veggies in relatively big pieces and put them into the pot. Spice them up with some salt, pepper, thyme and bay leaf and mix them well.
After this take some dry juniper berries and grind them well with mortar and pestle.
Step 3: The Meat!
Spice the meat as well using salt, pepper and the crushed juniper berries that will bring out the game taste from the moose meat.
Rub the spices on the meat on both sides and massage it well to spread it evenly.
Put the meat in the pot, just on top of the veggies and cover it with bacon. We cover the moose meat with bacon because wild game is practically fat free and without any fat the meat gets dry.
Meat is ready to be cooked!
Heat up the oven at 150 Celsius Degrees and let the meet be there, the longer the better :) . I cooked it almost 4 hours and it was delicious. :)
Step 4: Nam Nam!
Wild moose is finally tamed for a delicious meal.
Recommended to be accompanied with a nice red wine!
