Juicy and tasty moose meat cakes are a hit, whether for an everyday family dinner or on special occasions.
You can buy them in grocery stores all year around, as well as in some delis, and they are the perfect outdoor snack!
Bring them in your pack when you go on a hike and heat them up on the campfire.
The meat cakes are excellent on their own, but if you want a full meal, add vegetables and potatoes!
Here's how to make moose meat cakes at home:
500 g minced beef of moose (ground moose meat)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp potato flour
1 tbsp wheat flour
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp dried thyme
200 ml single cream
2 tbsp margarine for frying
1. Mix salt into the mince meat to make a solid dough. Mix in the potato flour, wheat flour and spices. Add egg and mix well.
2. Add cream in two batches, stirring well between each time.
3. Divide the mixture into eight balls and shape into meat cakes on a wet chopping board. Fry for about 2 minutes on each side until just cooked through.
4. Serve moose meat cakes for dinner with vegetables, boiled potatoes, and lingonberry jam.
You can also use deer meat/mince to make deer meat cakes. A hot meat cake sandwich with fried onions and salad is also tasty, or you can serve a large plate of moose meat cakes together with other hot dishes on a buffet.
If you want the best and most flavourful moose meat, you should buy it in the autumn, when it's hunting season in Norway.
Moose meat is not only tasty, it's also a more sustainable alternative to beef.
In addition, the animals have lived freely all their lives, and Norwegian hunters have been trained to prevent unnecessary suffering during the hunt.
Moose and deer populations are increasing in Norway, and their numbers have never been greater.
