I thought I'd post this recipe just in case somebody's interested in trying to try cooking the meat Finnish style he he he...It's not that complicated!
(Fried Reindeer Meat)
500-600 grams of reindeer/moose meat
100 grams of butter
approx. 2 dl water (1 dl = 100 ml)
approx. 1 tsp salt
black pepper to taste
some beer with 4.7% alcohol level (approx. half a can)
How to Cook:
1. Cut the meat into thin slices. My hubby says that it's best to do it when the meat's still half frozen.
2. Dump all the meat in the pan and stir-fry it with butter until it's brown and add pepper and salt to taste.
3. Add water bit by bit and make sure to check on it every once in a while so the meat's not dry. Keep it simmering with medium heat for approximately an hour.
4. Add beer during the last 15-20 minutes (enough beer to soak the meat). Hubby says that beer will tenderize the meat.
That's all you need to do. Not hard, isn't it? It just takes time to let it simmer he he he...I've followed the recipe once, but I think I added a bit more water to the pan. Hubby says that if you put too many spices when you cook reindeer/moose meat, you'll take away the original reindeer/meat taste, so just make sure you only add black pepper and salt to taste. You can eat it with anything you want, either potatoes or rice. GOOD LUCK and bon appétit!!! ^_________________________________________^
