Company for dinner tonight? This slow cooker moose roast recipe is one I highly recommend.
We used a boneless cross rib roast from the moose we harvested this year for this recipe (this cut is also known as a boneless shoulder pot roast). This cut comes from the animal just below the chuck and above the brisket. You must cook this roast in liquid to prevent it from becoming tough and stringy.
We took the roast out of the freezer and let thaw before preparing to cook it. My wife and I had a party the night before and we looking for an easy dinner for our weekly family Sunday Night Dinner. Neither of us were into cooking an elaborate meal, a slow cooker moose roast would be ideal for this situation.
Someone once asked if serving Yorkshire Pudding would be appropriate with this type of wild meat. Absolutely it would, as a matter fact this is exactly what we have in mind.
Moose cross rib roast, served with mashed potatoes, vegetables and Yorkshire pudding with gravy of course. A little Yellowtail Shiraz to wash it down, Yum!
Slow Cooker Moose Roast : Ingredients:
When done remove from slowcooker, let stand for 5-10 minute before cutting. If you don't do this all the juice will run out of the meat.
Make your gravy from the remaining broth in the slow cooker.Internal Temperature for Cooked Meat
Served with Mashed potatoes, Vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and Gravy.
As with most wild game meats, don't overcook! Because wild meat is very lean, if or should I say when you overcook the process removes the moisture and burns off the little fat there is. In doing so the meat becomes tough.
Don’t expect leftovers.
