Eating Geese

38 posts in this topic

Two weeks ago I thawed out one of my last goose breasts from last year. Put it in marinade over night then slapped it on the grill. Very dry, very tough!

I know there is a recipe forum, but because this is specific to waterfowl and I believe I'd get a better response in this forum, I was wondering if everyone could share how you like to make your geese. Any good recipes on how to make a good, tender, tasty goose breast? That last one I made was pretty much rawhide, but I ate it anyway. tongue.gif

Jerky, jerky or jerky are the options I use with geese.

But I just don't have much of a taste for waterfowl honestly. The jerky turns out wonderful!

Here you go basscatcher.

I'm a simple cook.

1- Crock Pot

1- Goose breast cut into approximately 1"x1" cubes or so

1- Can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup

-- Little bit of water

Set on low and let sit all day.

Simple, tender, and Mmmmmm.... blush.gif

I'm guessing your goose may have been tough because it was froze for nearly a year. Might not have been but could have been a factor.

slow cooker, can of cream of chicken or mushroom and a half can of diet coke. Start it in the morning.

A buddy made it last year at the cabin and it was awesome.

Last time I made goose, I got one of those slow cooker helpers for a pot roast(next to hamburger helper). Just sub the goose instead of the beef, add some spices and whatever else you might like in there. It turned out great. The duck I tried that way didn't turn out so well though, so this is pretty much for geese only.

Put the breast in the crock pot with a pot of coffee. Let it cook on low all day. Drain the coffee and shread the meat. Add your favorite BBQ suace. Loose Goose Sandwich.

Or

Cube breast meat into 1" squares. Marinate in 1/2 red wine 1/2 Zesty Italian dressing for a couple of days. Put meat on cabob sticks with bacon. Grill until the bacon looks done. Duck and goose should be served medium rare to keep from drying out.

For goose breast, try cutting them into thin strips about the size of your index finger. Flower and salt and pepper in a bag and put in strips and shake to coat them. Put in a pan and fry - yes fry them up. Very important-- use butter flavored Crisco instead of regular oil. The butter flavored Crisco is the most important part. I also do my ducks this way. Never used to care for duck till I tryed this out.

I'm with BLB...I make jerky out of nearly all of mine...Personally, I think the cajioun flavor removes a lot of the "wild game" taste...People who say they don't like duck or goose, really can't tell when it is jerky. It is usually a huge hit at work too...

Here's my favorite:

Goose Breasts

1 package of dried Au Juus

1 package of dried Italian Dressing Mix

1 Can of Beef Broth

Place the goose in a slow cooker, add the ingredients, and mix well. Cook for about 6 hours.

I've had guys who swore they'd never eat goose, wiping the plate clean with a piece of bread and looking for more.

Here's one my kid daughter and her friend returned for seconds when before hand they both turned up their noses when I offered them goose.

1. Crock pot

2. Goose breast(s)

3. Onion soup base. I made my own using onions, garlic, mushrooms, celery, salt, pepper, and water but I might try Lipton Onion Soup mix the next time.

4. Simmer all day.

5. Enjoy the most tender and flavorful goose you ever have! grin.gif

Wow, those all sound like great recipes!

I've tried the goose jerky before, some that a co-worker had made. It was pretty darn good and you really couldn't tell it was goose.

I'll have to thaw out the last breast I have in the freezer (gotta make room for more now anyway!). grin.gif I think I'll just go right down the list of suggestions as you guys have posted and give EACH a try throughout the season! wink.gif

Thanks much for all the tasty lookin' recipes!

For those guys that jerky their goose, do you have a recipe? Or do you bring it in somewhere?

Quick and easy, best I've had, works well for venison loins too.

Ingredients: Goose breast whole, 1/4 stick butter, cooking sherry, flour/salt/pepper, olive oil, grape/berry jam

Roll the whole breast in flour/salt/pepper mix. Place in hot pan with olive oil for 30 seconds a side to brown. Remove from pan and thin slice breast 1/4 inch thick. Meat will still be raw. Place back into the hot olive oil for ~30 seconds a side, this is plenty to cook it through. Remove meat turn heat to low and add a little sherry to deglaze the pan, add butter and a little jam and melt/mix it. Add meat back to pan and stir the mix over the meat, cook for 1 more min and you are done. Tender enough to cut with a fork and great taste.

Do Not Overcook

I like to marinate whole breasts overnite in a combination of Coke or Dr. Pepper and zesty italian salad dressing. Before throwing them on the grill, slit them open and put a favorite BBQ sauce in the middle, close 'em back up and wrap the breasts in bacon and hold together with toothpicks. Awesome...although now I see I'm going to have to experiment with all these other recipes I've seen! Good luck!

One of My Favorite's

First you lay the goose breast's in glass baking dish. You season them with your favorite all spice type seasoning. Slice up green,red and orange peppers and arrange them on top of the goose.

Second you pour Captain Morgan spiced Rum into the pan, just enough to cover the meat. Put the dish into the oven and bake on 300 for approximately 2 hours, adding a little Rum as needed to keep covered due to evaporation.

Third you remove the pan from the oven and let cool. Throw the peppers and goose into the trash and drink the Rum. grin.gif

To go along with "snowgoose" The loose goose meat is very good. I have done this before, just not with coffee. You can make up your favorite home made BBQ sauce. If you end up stripping enough meat for a large feed. You will have sore thumbs.

Von Hansons will make you up a tasty batch of sticks for a little over a $100. We prefer the hot cheese. We also have a batch made up with most of our pheasant. I believe they like 20 pounds or so at a time.

If you get a young goose that is tender enough to eat: Cut the breast in half or thirds depending on the size steak you want. Butterfly, stuff with red and yellow peppers, wrap entirely in bacon and throw on the grill.

Here how I get birds out of my freezer.

Marinate breast in 1/2 of a can of beer and 1 cup BBQ sauce. Preferrably over night.

Cut breast into 2" cubes. Try to make all cubes the same size.

Wrap each cube in a slice of bacon and secure with a tooth pick.

Grill on a charcaoal gril with indirect heat for about 45 min. turning once.

I have taken these to parties with a crowd that I suspected to be somewhat "anti-hunting" and they finished em off and ask me to bring em every year.

I like to make jerkey or smoke the breasts in the smoker. It I am cooking the bird I will take the breasts off of the breast bone, and brown them in a frying pan.. Then I will add a 1/2 cup of h20 to a can of cream of mushroom soup put in a pan and set in the oven at 350 for an hour or so depending on the thickness of the breat. Had my geese this way the other night and they turned out phenomenal.

Good Hunting!

For Mike in Lino III

Making jerky at home.

You need a grinder, a dehydrator and a jerky gun

I buy the NESCO brand seasoning at Walmart. (I like to mix the cajun and the original types together)

1) Grind goose meat.

2) Add NESCO seasoning and cure. (One package of each per pound of meat)

3) Shoot on trays with NESCO jerky gun.

4) Let it dry for about 6 hours at the high setting on your dehydrator turning the meat and rotating the trays one time at about 4 hours.

Warning: Your house will smell like jerky for a day or so after you are done. I try to make my jerky in the summer in the garage so the wife doesn't have to smell it.

I put mine in food saver bags and bring it out whenever I want some.

Best Way to make jerky is to cut the breast into thin strips and then soak it in a brine(any will do but brines with orange or apple juice are best) for a full twenty four hours. Then remove the strips and thread on a kabob stick. Set in the smoker for approximately four hour on 180 degrees.

Preparation is part of it make sure you are removing all the blue skin from the meat as this is where most wild game will get the off taste from. Marinate your cubed goose or duck in what ever you like me personally it's Teriaki and herb with a slpash of lemon juice, an A-1 over night. Wrap in bacon, slice up a sweet onion, green and orange bell pepper and proced to scewer em on a kabob. Slow cook on the grill until the bacon and the vegies are done don't over cook it or it will be tough. You won't be dissapointed I've served this to people that said they'ed never eat goose or duck again and they loved it.

    • Thanks friends, much better luck today, but worked pretty hard. 30-35' rainbows kept two 15's and a 16. Dog will get her allotment of a 1/4 filet for her time on the boat and able to save some in the freezer for my family!!!

       

       

    • Live to hunt another day by wearing a life jacket or float coat
      Hunters preparing to hit the water this fall in pursuit of ducks, geese and other wild game are reminded to include life jackets on their hunting gear checklist.
      “Hunters in Minnesota are trained from a young age to always put safety first. For duck and goose hunters, that means always wearing a life jacket on the water, no exceptions,” said Lt. Col. Greg Salo waterfowl-safetyof the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division.

      Each year, more waterfowl hunters die from drowning than from other types of hunting accidents. Swamping, capsizing and falling overboard are all common factors leading to these deaths, but in nearly all cases the hunter would have survived had they been wearing a life jacket.

      “Before launching the duck boat, make sure everyone on board is wearing a life jacket or float coat,” Salo said. “It’s the one item that greatly increases your odds of surviving a water emergency and living to hunt another day.”

      The wide variety of comfortable, camouflage life jackets designed specifically for waterfowl hunting includes inflatable vest and belt-pack styles, insulated flotation jackets, and foam-filled shooting vests with quilted shoulders and shell loops.

      “Typical foam-filled vests or float coats provide optimal insulation against cold air and the effects of hypothermia, but without question, the best life jacket for waterfowl hunting is the one you will actually wear,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR boating and water safety outreach coordinator. “Choosing a life jacket style that works for you, and wearing it every time you’re on the water, is not only a good choice – it could save your life.”

      At the very least, all boats must carry one U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket for each passenger, and boats longer than 16 feet must also have a throwable flotation device immediately available. Children under 10 must wear a life jacket.

      Other water safety tips for duck hunters include:

      • Don’t overload the boat; take two trips if necessary.
      • If wearing hip boots or waders, learn how to float with them on.
      • Stay near shore and avoid crossing large expanses of open water, especially in bad weather.
      • Share your trip plans with someone and advise them to call for help if you don’t return on schedule.
      • Use a headlamp, spotlight or navigation lights to alert other boaters of presence in dark and/or foggy conditions.
      • Carry a cell phone or personal locator beacon in case of emergency.
      • Don’t drink and boat and don’t drink and hunt

    • The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is seeking applications for grants to support off-highway vehicle (OHV) trail projects and new trail proposals.

      Application forms for projects on existing trails are due to a Parks and Trails area supervisor’s office each year by Nov. 30. New trail proposals are accepted throughout the year.

      First authorized in 1984, Minnesota’s OHV trails assistance program is a cost-share program intended to help develop and maintain trails for use by all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), off-highway motorcycles (OHMs) and off-road vehicles (ORVs).

      Known as the OHV grant-in-aid (GIA) program, it helps to establish and maintain recreational trails at the initiative of clubs and other organizations, with the support and participation of local government sponsors.

      Organizations can apply for GIA funds through counties, cities or townships. All aspects of OHV trail development and maintenance are eligible for funding, including project administration, site planning, trail improvements, land acquisition for trail development, and trail maintenance. Proposals with a focus on maintaining or improving existing trails and trail systems will be assigned a higher priority.

      Program and application information is www.dnr.state.mn.us/grants/recreation/gia_ohv.html

    • The Department of Natural Resources will sell 40 northern Minnesota parcels in three public oral bid auctions in October and November.

      • Tuesday, Oct. 25 – Nine northwestern Minnesota parcels will be auctioned at the County Administration Building in Bemidji.
      • Thursday, Oct. 27 – 27 northeastern Minnesota parcels will be auctioned at the Lake County Courthouse in Two Harbors.
      • Thursday, Nov. 3 – Four parcels in north-central Minnesota will be auctioned at DNR Brainerd area office.

      The properties include unimproved recreational land and residential lakeshore parcels in Aitkin, Cass, Clearwater, Cook, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Lake, and St. Louis counties. There is a wide range of sizes and land uses in this selection of sales, from a small 0.80 acre former water access site on Pine Lake in Clearwater County to a 200-acre recreational parcel in Breitung Township in northeastern St. Louis County.

      The DNR regularly sells land which is no longer needed for its original conservation purpose, after a thorough internal review, and after giving state agencies and local governments opportunities to purchase the land. Proceeds from sales of lands the DNR had once acquired go to the DNR division that had managed the land and are used to purchase and develop lands better suited to that division’s conservation goals.

      Many of the parcels to be sold are School Trust lands. Proceeds from these auction sales are deposited to a fund that benefits the state’s public school system. School Trust land by law can only be sold at public auction.
      Bidders are advised to obtain and view the property data sheet, be familiar with the property, minimum bid price, and terms and conditions of sale prior to attending the auction.

      To obtain a property data sheet or terms and conditions of sale call 651-259-5432, or 888-646-6367 or email landsale@dnr.state.mn.us. The property data sheets are also available online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/lands_minerals/landsale/.

      During the open house, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources staff will provide maps of existing trails, answer questions and take comments and suggestions from the public.

      Between 2003 and 2008, the DNR inventoried all routes and designated trails for various types of recreation within state forests.

      This current project will reevaluate the designations made during the initial review of the Bear Island, Burntside, Insula Lake, Lake Isabella, Lake Jeanette and Sturgeon River state forests in St. Louis and Lake counties.

      Changes could include redefining how trails can be used, determining options for motorized trail routes and trail connections, closing unsustainable trails, designating “areas with limitations” during hunting and trapping activities, and developing new hunter-walking trails. Changes to state forest trail designations must be made by commissioner’s order and published in the State Register.

      Written comments may be submitted to foresttrailplanning.dnr@state.mn.us or by mail to Joe Unger, DNR Parks and Trails, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155-4039. The DNR will accept written comments through Nov. 2.

    • Sartell artist Scot Storm won the 2017 Minnesota Pheasant Habitat Stamp contest. The painting was selected by judges from among 15 submissions for the annual contest sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

      Storm’s painting will be featured on the 2017 pheasant habitat stamp. His artwork has been featured on the pheasant stamp in 2011, 2006 and 2000; and on the waterfowl stamp in 2015, 2009 and 2004.

      The pheasant stamp validation for hunting is $7.50 and is required for pheasant hunters ages 18 to 64. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the validation as well as the pictorial stamp in the mail. It also is sold as a collectible. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to pheasant management and habitat work.

      Four entries advanced as finalists and were selected Sept. 22 at DNR headquarters in St. Paul. Other finalists were Mark Thone, second place; Nicholas Markell, third place; and Mark Kness, fourth place.

      The DNR offers no prizes for the stamp contest winner, but the winning artist retains the right to reproduce the work. The 2017 pheasant stamp will be available for sale in March.
