Bear Steaks with Greek Seasonings In reply to
2 lb Bear steaks
1/2 c Olive oil
1/2 c Lemon juice
1 tb Garlic powder
1 ts Salt
1 ts Pepper
1 ts Combination of oregano, marjoram, rosemary and/or mint
Trim all visible fat from the bear as it turns rancid rapidly.
Whisk the other ingredients together until emulsified. Use the emulsion to marinate the meat for 2-3 hours, refrigerated. Longer marinading before cooking does not improve the meat as the remaining bear fat will go rancid despite refrigeration. Grill, broil or saute the steaks until WELL DONE. Bear should always be thoroughly cooked as a trichinosis precaution. Serve immediately.
Do not try making a gravy from the marinade as it will usually have picked up a gamy taste from the bear meat.

Mohawk Marinated Bear Steak In reply to
4 Bear steaks, 1 1/2" thick
2 Wild onions, sliced
1 c Indian vinegar
1 c Water
1/2 c Maple syrup
2 tb Spice bush powder
1 tb Salt
1 tb Bear fat, rendered
Salt and pepper
Get a bear just before hibernation, as they are usually fat and rich at this time. All fat should be trimmed off the meat, which is very easy as bear meat is not marbled like beef. Marinating the meat makes it taste better and makes the meat tender and juicy.
In a large pottery bowl mix the onions, Indian vinegar, wataer, maple syrup, spice bush powder and salt. Let stand for a couple of hours, then ppupt in the bear steaks. Put in a cool place for about 24 hours, turning the steaks every once in a while.
Remove the steaks from the marinade, let them drain and pat them dry. Heat a heavy frying pan and rub the pan with the rendered bear fat. Place the steaks in the ppan and sear on both sides. Lower the heat and finish cooking, adding more fat to prevent sticking. Remove steaks from the frying pan. Add a little flour and water to thicken the gravy. Pour gravy over the individual steaks on the serving dish. Serve with potatoes.

Sweet and Sour Black Bear In reply to
Bear meat isn't as common in the average household as other big game but, if the bear is young and tender and hadn't learned to catch fish it should taste good enough for anybody. Be sure that bear meat is thoroughly cooked to avoid trichinosis.
Cube about 2 lbs. of bear meat and sprinkle with salt and pepper, then dredge with flour. Brown in a little shortening. After the bear pieces are browned, add 1/2 c. water, 1/4 c. wine vinegar and 2 T. soy sauce. Cover and simmer for an hour or until fork tender. Now add 1 c. apricot jam and 1 green pepper, diced, and cook 20 min. longer. Serve over rice.

BRAISED BEAR STEAK In reply to
Older bear meat can be prepared as follows:

Flour
Salt and pepper
Thyme
1 cup sliced onions
4 tbsp. bacon fat
Bear steak, 3" thick
1 1/2 cups broth
1 cup red wine
2 tbsp. tomato paste

Pound the flour and dry seasonings into the steak with the edge of a plate or a meat pounder. Brown the onions in the bacon fat and add the meat. Brown meat well on all sides. Add part of the broth and wine and bring to a boil. Cook briskly for 5 minutes. Turn steak, reduce heat, and cover the pan. Simmer for 1-1 1/2 hours, adding more liquid if necessary. When steak is tender, remove it to a hot platter. Add the tomato paste and additional liquid, if needed, to the pan juices to make a smooth sauce. Taste for seasoning and pour over the steak. Surround with boiled potatoes, garnish with parsley, and serve with sauteed mushrooms.

Slice bear meat into serving size portions about 1/4" thick. Tenderize with a meat hammer. Dredge in seasoned flour. Brown quickly in a small amount of oil. Add enough water to cover meat. Cover pot tightly and simmer until tender over low heat. Thicken gravy to desired consistency with flour. Season to taste. Dehydrated onion soup may be used to flavor, as may fresh onion slices.
