(Watson Lake, Yukon)
What's on your plate? Moose Ribs?
I learned this recipe from a First Nation friend who lives above the Arctic circle in the Yukon, Canada...
Moose ribs - bone in
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Large roasting pan with lid..
One or two potatoes, carrots (a couple), apple and an onion.
You can use pretty well any root type vegetable...
Cut the vegetables into larger sized pieces..no need to peel except the onion..
Put vegetables etc on bottom of pan and add the ribs to the pan..
Cover tightly put in oven for 1/2 hr at 400 turn down heat to 250 degrees..
Leave in oven for 5 hours. check after 5 hours for doneness. If ribs are thick they will take 8 hrs....
When done to your liking take out of pan and put on BBQ and grille for a few minutes with your favorite sauce.
Do not add spices or salt and pepper while cooking.
We do this recipe with moose ribs, or caribou ribs...Caribou or deer would not take quite as long to cook...
