Neck Roast and Cajun Recipe

As I said when I was describing the difficulty in de-boning meat from the neck area of an elk – it’s a difficult task.

A Plan is Formed

We have decided that we have enough square bales in the loft of the barn that we can afford to part with the round ones we have outside. The ones that are exposed to the local wildlife. There is a herd of elk, deer and a few moose that want it bad. I want the […]

about the Rhubarb Marinade

I tried the Rhubarb marinade, did anyone else? I can’t tell if it softened it anymore than usual. It did have an interesting flavor but only after I doubled (or more) the amount of rhubarb. It was way better on chicken (which is milder) than on beef. I think that’s because the flavor of the Rhubarb […]
