Over the week end we traveled to Camden , Maine
to take part in Maine Farmers Draft and Mule Club plow.
The weather was PERFECT , clear , nice breeze no bugs.
Thirteen teams of horses and a single =27 horses.
Not every one hitched and plowed , but what a nice group of people.
this was the first time hauling the horses this far from the farm.
Another first this week , I was gifted some local moose meat.
A customers daughter hunted moose this year , and brought me in some sample's. This is what we will be making: Moose Burgers
3 pounds ground moose meat
¼ cup minced garlic
¼ cup soy sauce
½ cup honey
2 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons onion powder
1 ½ teaspoons chili powder
2 tablespoons canola oil
Preheat your over to 350 degrees F.
First, stir together minced garlic, soy sauce, and honey in a small saucepan. After they are thoroughly mixed, add in the powders. Bring this mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat before reducing heat to medium-low and letting it cook at a low simmer for 15 minutes. Set aside.
If you are making meatballs, roll the ground moose into meatballs in portions equivalent to about 2 tablespoons. This recipe should make about 48 meatballs. Next, heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the meatballs in batches until browned and cooked through.
Once your meat has drained, put your meatballs or patties into a baking dish. Pour the sauce over your meat and make sure it’s well coated. Bake the meat for about 20 minutes so it absorbs the sauce.
If you are making burgers, put meat into patties and cook on the grill or as desired. For some amazing topping choices, go classic with BLT, or try avocado, onion rings, mushrooms. Try an alfredo sauce dressing – delicious!
