Bear Kabobs- submitted by Kevin Layne
This is a great grill recipe for bear, venison and even the lesser
meats like beef and chicken, Sometimes I even spring for some
Tomatoes Canola Oil
- Green Peppers Vinegar
- Big mushrooms
- Onions Soy Sauce
- Meat cut into
1 1/2 inch chunks Salt
- 1 Bottle Russian salad dressing
Marinade-Mix the dressing in a big glass bowl with equal
parts oil and vinegar. Add a dash of the worchester sauce,
salt and pepper. Marinate the red meat (not chicken or
shrimp) in the marinade for a couple of hours or all
Get your coals lit or fire up your gas grill and on coals
adjust the heat to about four hippopotimus.(Hold
your hand at about
the level of the spears, then go....one hippopotomus,
two hippo, three...ouch!!)
Put the goodies on the spears, alternating items.
The pieces of meat will pick up the flavor from the onions
and the peppers,
vary the order that these are assembled.
Line your kabobs over the heat, cover loosely and
go into the house and get the remaining marinade
and a soft
brush. Turn over
and brush the marinade over all, repeat this several
times. This does not take long to cook, usually
when the tomatoes start looking
like they want to fall off the kabob its done.
Bear meat is like pork in that it has to be cooked through.
Braised Bear Steak
Older bear meat can be prepared as follows:
- 1 cup sliced onions
- 4 tbsp. bacon
- Bear steak, 3" thick
- 1 1/2
- 1 cup red wine
- 2 tbsp. tomato paste
Pound the flour and dry seasonings
into the steak with the edge of a plate or a meat pounder. Brown
in the bacon fat
and add the meat. Brown meat well on all sides. Add part of the
broth and wine and bring to a boil. Cook briskly for 5 minutes.
Turn steak, reduce heat, and cover the pan. Simmer for 1-1 1/2
hours, adding more liquid if necessary. When steak is tender, remove
it to a hot platter. Add the tomato paste and additional liquid,
if needed, to the pan juices to make a smooth sauce. Taste for
seasoning and pour over the steak. Surround with boiled potatoes,
garnish with parsley, and serve with sautéed mushrooms.
