Moose Steaks

We are certainly expanding our culinary adventures here at the Thomas household lately.  Proof of this fact is that there is one papaya in our refrigerator and there are were some moose steaks in there, too.  I still don't know what to do with the papaya, but the moose steaks were delicious.

Several weeks ago a co-worker of my husband's gave him some frozen vacuum packed moose steaks from a recent Alaskan hunting trip.  I promptly put them into our freezer, as I have no moose meat recipes anywhere in my collection of cookbooks.

However, we are game (haha, I crack myself up) for anything, so I went to my computer, and as always, Pinterest came to my rescue with a recipe for moose meat that looked promising.

This recipe for Moose Steak Marinade I found on a blog, "Live the Alaska Life."  Kara shared this one in her blog on May 9th, 2012.  It's a keeper.  Well, I take that back.  I won't be putting this one into my collection of recipes, because it's simply too infrequently that I have occasion to make moose meat.  Perhaps if I lived in Alaska...

Anyway, here are the ingredients you will need to mix together to make your marinade:

1/3 cup of soy sauce
1/2 cup of olive oil
1/3 cup of lemon juice
1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
3 Tablespoons dried basil
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
dash of pepper

Mix all together.

Put moose steaks into a large ziploc bag and add the marinade mix.
Man handle it all around so the meat is covered on all sides with the marinade.
Marinade for six hours, flipping the bag over after three hours.

Grill and enjoy!

For dinner, I served the moose steaks with some boiled potatoes and a colorful mix of veggies.  It was a delicious meal, and we found the meat to be quite tasty, yet not as tough as many beef steaks.

My only regret is that I hadn't invited company to join us for dinner.

They would've been impressed!
