    mountain lion meat, any recipes?

    So I have a couple of backstraps and the hind quarters off of a small mountain lion.
    I was told to cube and marinade in teriyaki and grill on the bbq.

    any one have any recipes for this animal? I have never tried it before.

    thanks

    I have heard of people soaking in buttermilk and then frying but have never tried it. I'm not a fan of eating anything else that eats meat so have declined the few opportunities I have had on lion and bear.

    I have had it once. A friend of a friend runs them with dogs. One year at a New Years party he had Swedish meatballs out of ground lion meat. Tasted like beef to me. But with all the sauce on it, hard to really taste the meat.

    I had mountain lion chili once. It was really good but I personally am not going to spend a lot of time out chasing them.

    That kind of meat kinda freaks me out. I would try it but like already said I don't think I want to eat a animal that eats meat.

    just cut off a slab an throw it on the barbeque on high wait a minute flip wait a minute and serve.
    if it don't taste good like that it ain't worth covering with sauces or seasonings to hide the nasty !

    I don't hunt for them, but when I found one in its bed and I had a tag, I couldn't pass it up. I don't just want to throw the meat away. I figured, I might not have this opportunity again, so lets try it.

    Tim,
    Couple key steps and as other have eluded to.....gotta do a lot to make it taste good. That being said I applaud you for eating what you shoot. Lot of this is also on the internet I'm sure somewhere.

    1) Get the meat to room temp and get all the blood out. Room temp meat moist should drain out itself.
    2) Gotta boil and drain...discard/drain all the brown film and stuff that comes out of it. 20-30 min
    3) Repeat #3 (no joke here)
    4) marinate overnight in water ever you want ( oil based is best like Italian dressing)
    5) skillet cook it in (high quality) olive oil or bacon grease
    6) cook till no pink ( trichinosis)
