For those successful black bear hunters, and for non-hunters who are fortunate enough to receive some bear meat, here is a recipe for bear meat loaf. I have heard, both, good and bad things about bear meat, but until I try it for myself, I will not REALLY know what I’m missing–or not missing. I think I will start with this recipe that I found from the Mountain View Drifter when I do get my bear. Let us know if you try this recipe, and tell us what you think.
Black Bear Meat Loaf
- 3 lbs. ground bear meat 1 lb. ground beef (fatty)
- 3 cans Campbell’s Frenc
- h onion soup
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs
- 1 can mushrooms 8 oz or larger
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- garlic powder (to taste)
- black pepper (to taste)
This recipe is very simple. Heck, I invented it so how hard can it be?
First drain the broth out of 2 cans of the French onion soup, and set aside. Next, put the other ingredients (except 3rd can of soup) into a mixing bowl. Add the onions from the two cans of soup and mix well.
Put into roasting pan and pour broth and the third can of onion soup over top. Set oven at 350 degrees and cook for 2 1/2 hours or until done. Make sure that the meat is thoroughly cooked.
The guys at the dinner loved it I hope it helps somebody out.
