Here is Knockout Kitchen’s take on a Newfoundland traditional recipe, Newfoundland Moose Stew.  A typical moose stew can’t be beat!  It typically doesn’t contain stock or wine but with this recipe I just wanted to try something different with an old staple.  Hope you all enjoy the recipe.

    A friend gave me some Newfoundland Moose round steaks so I had to make a Newfoundland Moose stew. I was a little nervous about the amount of liquid in the recipe but the stew turned out really good —- I did simmer the stew about twice as long as the recipe suggested.

    Made this moose stew last year and it was great, and I didn't know anything about cooking moose meat. I also simmered it longer than called for in the recipe. Making it again today 🙂

    I made this last autumn, with a bit of beef mixed in (was about a kilo of moose and half a kilo of beef), and a bit of chopped salted pork belly. We loved it, especially the texture added by grating potatoes. I ended up simmering it closer to 4 hours in a cast iron pot on really low heat, but it was absolutely gorgeous when it was done. Will definitely make it again!

    For making the moose meat this is the totally new recipe for me and I really enjoyed the taste. All the ingredients were pretty easy to get from my kitchen and it was really very tasty.
