Every year a hunting season takes place in Sweden where around 100,000 eurasian elks are shoot. So when we´re at Johan´s parents we have the opportunity to eat and cook moose meat since Johan´s dad is a hunter.
The eurasian elk, also referred to as moose is the largest of species in the deer family. It can be found in the north of Europe and in parts of North America and the meat is delicious!
Below you find the two recipes: Grilled moose and our Northen risotto.
Moose meat, garlic, cooking oil, black pepper, sugar and salt.
Cut the meat in 2-3 cm slices. For the marinade, blend a lot of garlic and black pepper with cooking oil and a some salt and a small amount of sugar (to bring out more taste). Marinate the meat, grill it rare and serve with sauce and cooked or oven baked potatoes.
Risotto rice, onion, garlic, chanterelles, moose meat, Västerbotten cheese, white wine, wild meat gravy, salt and pepper.
Fry the rice with onion and garlic for some minutes. Then pour the wild meat gravy and the white wine in the pot and let the rice absorb it, little by little.
Fry the chanterelles and the moose meat with onion and garlic then ad it to the risotto along with chopped tomatoes, black pepper and salt. When the rice is finished, grate the dish with a great amount of Västerbotten cheese and you´ll have a very tasty, untypical risotto.
