Now with some bear meat in the freezer and have never cooked bear meat. What are some of your best recipes? I had sliced bear in like an au jus up north deer hunting a few years ago at donners bay and it was phenomenal.

Was years ago but I remember having a bear roast that was slow cooked until it shredded. They cooked a beef roast in the exact same manner at the same time. No comparison, bear won by a mile. Wish i knew the recipe but there was no question that the bear was juicier and more flavorful.

ditto to ole 870's remark on the grilled bear backstrap. My personal favorite is to marinade a backstrap in a packet of McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite. Absolutely delicious! Have had on a charcoal grill and just broiled this way. For what it's worth, I've found that bear goes exceptionally well with any kind of Mesquite/BBQ based marinade.

Made bear chilli. Was excellent. Then bear steaks on the grill. Not good. How ever yesterday I did 2 bear roast in the oven. Then put them in the fridge overnight. Tonight sliced the roast and warmed up in its juices from the oven. Served on nice rolls with sautéd green peppers and mozzarella cheese. Was my wife's favorite game meal to date. I thought it was phenomenal too. Seems to be alittle bit of a learning curve to bear meat. But so far 2 outta 3 ain't bad. And the 2 I'll take over venison any day.

Wow, for bear to be as bad as you describe I'd say either you guys aren't taking care of your game properly or maybe you're just terrible chefs? LOL. Just giving you a little hard time guys, to each his own I guess. In my opinion, I'd take bear meat over deer any day simply because it's a lot less gamey tasting and is about as close to beef (with the marbling)as you can get. The back straps of bear are to die for when properly seasoned and prepared, we always grill ours. They are pull apart tender and absolutely delicious. And bear hamburger, cut with a little beef or pork, absolutely out of this world. More bear and less deer in Wisconsin is fine with me, just too bad you have to wait 10years and fight ridiculous competition to get one. That probably explains why I go to Canada every fall to hunt them. Big Smile

No doubt, bear burgers are my favorite. Add bacon to the grind.

I didn't but it crossed my mind, I happened to be in the mood for creamy garlic butter noodles on the side,but I think I would prefer it over rice because it kinda reminded me of a Chinese dish
