On the Trail

Break that glass ceiling with your own homage to Sarah Palin’s favorite food, moose stew:

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 lbs moose, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • 3 carrots, sliced
  • 18 small whole white onions
  • 12 small new potatoes, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour

  • Directions

  • Saute meat cubes in shortening until brown on all sides.
  • Add pepper, paprika, bay leaf, salt, beef broth, red wine, onion, and carrots.
  • Cover and simmer until meat is tender, about 2 hours.
  • Add whole onions and potatoes; cover and simmer for an additional 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are barely tender.
