Moose meat cuts?
I recently had some moose meat given to me and one package is labeled "Back strap" what is that and how should I cook it? Thank you for your help.
Moose meat cuts like this should not be used in stews or ground into mince.
Moose backstraps are a premium cut of meat.
This cut is very tender, similar in texture to a NewYork Strip steak. The backstrap occupies the void along the back of the animal tight against the spine. The tenderloin is on the inside of the body cavity opposite the backstrap.
