We had some moose burgers made and they are very dry. Can we add some fat pork or something to them now, because I don't want to have to throw away all those burgers. What can I do? V
This is not an uncommon problem when moose burger patties are made by your meat processor. When you ask your butcher to make up moose burgers, they load the patty making machine with moose mince and press them... without additives. At that time however, you could ask your butcher to add ground beef to the mixture.
Typically it is not recommended to add ground pork or pork fat as it does not keep as well as beef.
As I am sure you know most people, when making moose patties at home will add a variety of ingredients including but not limited to: eggs, milk, bread crumbs, oil, onions, barbeque sauce etc. Any of these additions help to add moisture to moose patties.
We have experienced the same situation as you. It is very disappointing to have a case of moose hamburger patties in the freezer that are seemingly uneatable.
There are a couple of things you can do.
