This works with any tough meat. I use it with moose or beef. Do vary the sauce to your taste. Barbecue, wine, and onion-based sauces are usually best for disguising the gaminess. It's the cooking method that tenderizes, not the sauce.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Add the bay leaves and onion flakes to the water. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium low to maintain a simmer. Add the moose, recover, and steam until fork tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on thickness, adding water to the pot as needed.

This is the best way to cook tougher cuts of moose or any game meat like this. It was tender and I could do anything with it after it was steamed. I put a clove of garlic in the boiling water and salt and peppered the moose meat. My husband said to keep this way of cooking moose handy. Read More
