Like scores of other Alaskan hunters, I love cooking with moose meat and one of our family favorites is a delicious marinated moose steak cooked on the grill. There is something inherently satisfying with having the ability to prepare fast, healthy, and enjoyable meals for yourself and your loved ones with meat that you hunted yourself, cleaned yourself, and cooked yourself, completing the entire ‘field to table’ process!
This recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare, saving you time and getting you scores of compliments on the end result in the process….WIN!
Combine the following ingredients in a large Ziploc or dish and marinate for 6 hours, then grill!
* 1/3 cup soy sauce
* 1/2 cup olive oil
* 1/3 cup lemon juice
* 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
* 1 tablespoon garlic powder
* 3 tablespoons dried basil
* 1 tablespoon dried parsley
* dash of pepper
You can opt to marinade for longer and oftentimes we will prepare the recipe the night before and let the moose steak marinade in the fridge overnight. The next evening you can pull the meat out of the bag, throw it onto a pre-headed grill, and cook to your desired temperature!
Serve with red potatoes (boil for approximately 20 mins) and a simple Caesar salad (romaine lettuce, grated Parmesan cheese, croutons). We have used lettuce grown in our garden, which can grow like gangbusters during the long summer days in Alaska. Sometimes we find ourselves with so much lettuce we hardly know what to do with it! You can see our mini-garden attempt here. If you give it a shot, let us know how it turns out!
The finished moose steak! Like we said before, these are sure to please, so if you end up giving this receive a try for yourself, we’d love to hear how it turns out. If you liked it, but also added your own ‘twist’, to this, we’d love to hear that as well! Enjoy!
