Black Bear Roast!
« on: February 14, 2007, 07:43:00 PM »
My wife slow cooked a roast from the 200 lb. Michigan black bear I took last fall.  It was outstanding!  Some of her relatives were amazed at both the taste and texture.  Does anyone have more recipes they could share?  I have a bunch of burger too.  I haven't tried a bear burger yet.

Dave, no special recipes here, but I've et two and they were great, eh? I didn't do any special recipes, basically cooked just like vension but ditched the "medium rare" recipes I love so much for venison because of the trichinosis risk. So I often slow-roasted, simmered, etc. The meat is, IMO, very sweet, needed little seasoning.

Either Slow Cooker or in one of those Oven Roaster Bags.  Keeps the roast really moist.

Take some fresh garlic, parsley, thyme, ground pepper, and soft butter.  Mash it either with a mortar and pestle, or in a mini-chopper.  Spread it all over the roast.  Wrap the roast with bacon and tie to secure it.  Chop up onions, carrots, and celery, and place in either the slow cooker or oven bag.  Mix together some brandy, red wine, tomato paste and beef broth.  Pout into either slow cooker or oven bag.  If roasting in the oven bag, place the roast in the bag and tie it up.  If outting it in the Slow Cooker, heat up some oil in a pan large enough to hold the roast and brown it on all sides, then place in the Slow Cooker.  Set the oven to 350, and let it cook for 2-3 hours, Slow Cooker set it for 7 hours.  Slice nad enjoy.
