A friend just bagged a moose a few days ago, and will be giving me some moose stakes. I've never prepared moose or any other wild game before... what do you all think I should make with it?

I had wild boar goulash before in Hungary that was delicious... so I was thinking about making goulash from it. But I don't know what else. Suggestions?

Hmmm....depends how much moose you get, and what cuts. Moose steaks are great - I don't have any recipes right now I can share though. I've never heard of moose goulash...sounds interesting though. Might be a bit gamey, but then again if they can make it with boar...

If you have the tools at hand - ground up some of the moose meat and make burgers with it.

If they are good cuts of steak cook them like beef on the BBQ, just watch out, they tend to be really lean and tend to dry out. Cook them really slow and don't poke or cut them once cooking.

Goulash is good for the poorer cuts (think stewing beef).

My step father cans it with some success.

I like the way moose tastes, but can't stand teh smell.

I agree with donk...BBQ them. I usually marinade thesteaks in Italian Dressing with garlic for a couple of hours before grilling them. I really enjoy moose steaks.

Well...back to the "vacation" up here in Maine.

thinking of NHPlanner's rsponse, I think dad marinade's them too. Helps with the moisture/dryness part.

The moose goulash worked out really yummy... now i just have to figure out what to do with about another 8 lbs of moose (including ribs)... eek!

The trick for ribs is to steam them first (or microwave) then BBQ them. This cooks the meat and locks in most of teh fat and flavour, then teh BBQ browns it and adds the smoke flavour.

Take my advice with moose steaks....

Make jerky out of them. I've had moose before and I almost broke a moler on them, they are really tough.
