WILD GAME RECIPES

By Ruth Albrecht

We all have that favorite wild game recipe that we just love to make and eat! Whether it might be a stew, chili, sausage, jerky etc., here is your chance to share and see that recipe featured in our magazine. In each issue we will feature one proven and tested wild game recipe. So, send me your recipe with a little history/story about it to 6906soarhellenbrand@gmail.com.

With so many avid bowhunters around, who does not like a good roast?  This recipe is simple enough and you only need one pan. I acquired this family favorite from my mother-in-law over 40 years ago and it was always one of her favorites too. So, here is how I make my favorite venison roast…

 

 

Featured Recipe

Submitted by Dale Goytowski, President Blackhawk Archery Club, Verona, Wisconsin

Some turkey hunters will only eat the breast meat from wild turkeys. Many of these hunters complain that wild turkey legs and thighs are very tough and they don’t use them. I have found that the wild turkey legs and thighs make an awesome turkey noodle soup by cooking them in a crock pot for 10 to 12 hours, until the meat falls off the bones. The amount of cooking time will vary depending on the age of the bird. The following list of ingredients is just a rough guide and can vary depending on the size of the bird and how much of each ingredient you prefer in the soup.

 

Ingredients

1 – leg and thigh from a wild turkey (can use both legs for a bigger batch)

1 – cup diced onions

1 – cup diced celery

2 – 16 oz. cans of chicken broth

2 – chicken bouillon cubes

4 – cups water

1 – bay leaf

1 – dried allspice berry (can use 2 for more flavor)

1 ½ teaspoon of salt

½ teaspoon of pepper

2 – cups thinly sliced carrots

2 – cups Kluski noodles

 

Directions

  • Combine all the above ingredients except the carrots and noodles in a crock pot

  • Cook until the turkey meat is tender and falling off the bones

  • Remove the legs and thighs from the soup

  • Separate the meat from the bones and cut into small pieces, making sure to remove all the boney spines!

  • Add the deboned meat back into the soup

  • Cook the carrots until tender and add them to the soup

  • Boil the noodles and add them to the soup

 

Enjoy a great soup!
