It's true, it can be hard to cook a good peice of wild game if you don't know how. I've eaten many a tough deer roast or steak after cooking for too long without adequate marinating or liquid. This spring however, Ryan began doing all our steaks, roasts, and thicker cuts of meat with a super tasty technique that keeps the juices in the meat and with a watchful eye- and doesn't over do it!
OK, I know this dish sounds a little "crunchy", and I'll admit is quite earthy, but cooking with wild foods is so fun! Besides what is amazing about Nettles and Dandelion, Sweet Potatoes are one of the best complex carbohydrate foods to bring sweetness and satisfaction in a meal. Besides harvesting your nettles and dandelion roots, this meal is easy to throw in the oven and combine with a protein such as the Elk and Nettle Meatloaf Muffins.
In the HHH Episode #11 we talk all things meat prep- getting your wild game out of the mountains, home, and then how to make things like summer sausage yourself. This is a simple way to enjoy your deer or elk, AND knowing what exactly is going into it!
