  • 2 to 3 T. vegetable oil
  • 2 to 3 lg. carrots, diced

  • 2 T. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 lg. potatoes, diced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 ½ tsp. rosemary, thyme, basil
  • ¾ tsp. pepper
  • 2 cartons beef bouillon 

Instructions

  1. Cube moose steaks into bite-size pieces and marinade in oil, rosemary and basil (overnight or for at least six to eight hours).
  2. Place on a sheet with parchment paper and brown meat, in a 350° oven for about 45 minutes.
  3. Add Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper, place in a pot, add the beef bouillon, and simmer for four to five hours. 
  4. In a pan sauté in oil the onion, carrots, and celery until soft for five minutes and bay leaves. Add to the stewing meat, cook for 1 hour.
