There really is nothing more delicious on a chilly winter’s night than a heaping bowl of moose stew! Whenever we drop off a moose for processing after a successful time in the field, I always request as much stew meat as possible, as it’s one of my favorite meals to cook and eat! This recipe can be followed as detailed below but also can be thrown in a slow cooker in the morning, set on low for 8 hours, and enjoyed that evening.
