    Default Wild Game Chili recipes

    Anyone have any wildgame chili recipes that they would like to share with the forum members? Also wondering if anyone uses any of the wild edible plants that we find up here in Alaska in their chili recipes. Thanks

    Default Caribou chili

    Made my first wild game chili with caribou meat, it was delicious. Now I wanna try other game meats like moose and bear. Everyone that came over to my home for my son's birthday feast really enjoyed it, most had seconds and some even thirds.
    To make the meat nice and tender I cooked it for 25 minutes in a pressure cooker before making the dish. Probably be a good prep method for any wild game, especially if the meat is a little on the chewy side.

    Precooking your meat for a while is always a good idea with chewy cuts. If you are cooking dry beans with your chili they can cook together in the same large, heavy pot (not the pressure cooker for beans I don't think). Another option is to grind it as for burger; there won't be anything tough about it then.

    Wild mustard, fresh or dried is a fine addition to chili. Indian potato root sliced small can take the place of beans or even the meat in summer chili dishes. And the old standby of wild chives gives you that sweet onion flavor. Almost any wild green that would work for the soup pot would blend and add more punch to chili.

    Might have to make up a batch of moose chili soon. Good Stuff!

    Default beans?

    I don't know why anyone would want to put beans in chili, but the rest of the recipe sounds real good. Real chili is meat and gravy.

    1-2 med onions
    Mushrooms (optional)
    6 Tblspns of corn meal
    6 Tblspns of chili powder
