Recipe: Boeuf bourguignon on moose

We are in the middle of the moose hunt here in Sweden. So this Friday we would like to offer a recipe on moose.

You need (for 4 persons): 

- 1kg beef knuckle on moose
- 2 yellow onions
- 1 tablespoon tomato puree
- 2 dl veal broth
- 1/2 bottle of red wine
- 2 packets of bacon 
- 200 g mushrooms
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 jar of pickled pearl onions
- 3-4 bay leaves 
- 1 bunch thyme

Here's how you do it:

Trim the meat and cut it into casserole pieces. Brown the meat in a hot frying pan with butter and oil. Season with salt and pepper and place the meat in a saucepan.

Peel and slice the onion and garlic. Fry them in a pot together with the tomato puree and the casserole pieces.

Pour on the wine, veal broth, water and add the thyme and bay leaves. Let the stew simmer under a lid until the meat is tender (about 1 1/2 hours).

Trim the mushrooms and cut them and the bacon into pieces. Fry the bacon and mushrooms in a frying pan until they are nicely colored. Put thhem in the pot and simmer for another 10 minutes.

Serve the stew with boiled potatoes.

Good luck and have a tasty meal!
