    One of our neighbours brought us a 3 lb bear roast to try. This was the first time I have tried bear & was a little nervous. It was delicious. I served it with mashed potatoes and boiled carrots.


    • 3 lb bear roast (bone in)
    • 2 cups tomatoes (I used homemade frozen)
    • 1/2 small can tomato paste
    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 2 stalks celery, sliced
    • 2 tsp garlic, minced
    • 3/4 tsp Italian season
    • 2 tsp salt (or to taste)
    • 1/2 tsp black pepper
    • 1/2 tsp dried chili flakes
    • 1 tsp Worchestershire sauce
    • 1 tsp Soya sauce
    • 1 bay leaf


    1. Place ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours. Remove bay leaf, meat and bone (if any) and slice. Return to sauce.

      Bear: the ultimate adventurous ingredient. You can't get that at the grocery store in Toronto! :-) What type of flavour did it have?

      A friend of mine gave me some venison once and I made a chili out of it. That was pretty tasty.

        It had a really rich, dark, beefy flavour, very tender. I also cook venison, mostly stew and chops. The stew is delicious, better than beef and I marinate the chops and lather them with barbeque sauce. We have a couple of bear in the area right now, so here's hoping!

          There's to eating locally :-) Look up my chili if you want to try it with your next haul of venison. The recipe is called "Deer Beer Pumpkinhead Chili."
