Caribou Recipes

The first of my caribou recipes produces a savory and hearty stew. Add beef broth to your liking. Less for a thicker stew and more to be more of a soup. The dumplings make the dish. Nothing like a little boo for dinner.



1-1/2 lbs caribou stew meat, cubed
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup canola or olive oil
1 cup onions, chopped
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp homemade onion powder
1/2 tsp homemade garlic powder
1/2 cup red wine
1 TBS homemade worcestershire sauce
dash of balsamic vinegar
2 to 3 cups homemade beef broth

2 cups potatoes, diced
1 cup celery, chopped
1-1/2 cups carrots, diced


Heat oil in a heavy skillet. Toss the meat with flour, and carefully add to the skillet with the onion. Season with the garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Brown on all sides of the meat well and make sure the onion is translucent.

De-glaze the pan with the red wine, and add the worcestershire sauce and balsamic vinegar. Add the beef broth; simmer for an hour.

Now add the potatoes, celery and carrots; simmering for 15 minutes. During the last 15 minutes of cooking, add the dumpling dough to the stew. (recipe follows)

Never Fail Dumplings

1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
3 TBS fresh rosemary, chopped

Sift the dry ingredients. Add the egg and milk. Stir and drop by spoonfuls into stew. Keep covered for 5 minutes, then uncover and boil several minutes longer. Serve immediately.

My next caribou recipe is a family favorite.



2 TBS butter or oil
1 lb ground caribou meat
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder
2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup frozen peas or french-style green beans
1 (16oz) pkg tater tots
1-1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded (optional)


PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees. Spray a casserole dish with vegetable oil; set aside.

Heat a heavy skillet and add the butter. Add the ground meat and onion; season with garlic and onion powder. Drain and place in the bottom of the prepared casserole dish.

Sprinkle the peas over the cooked meat and spread the condensed soup on top evenly. Arrange tater tots over the soup and bake for 35 minutes, covered. Uncover and bake for another 20 minutes.
