Braised Bear Steak Recipe


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


  1. Pound the flour and dry seasonings into the bear steak with the edge of a plate or a meat pounder.
  2. Brown the onions in the bacon fat and add the meat. Brown meat well on all sides.
  3. 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.
  4. Simmer for 1-1 1/2 hours, adding more liquid if necessary. When bear steak is tender, remove it to a hot platter.
  5. Add the tomato paste and additional liquid, if needed, to the pan juices to make a smooth sauce.
  6. Taste for seasoning and pour over the steak.
  7. Surround with boiled potatoes, garnish with parsley, and serve with sautéed mushrooms.
