    CHEF GRPA's Note:

    A stew of bear meat is made similarly to a beef stew. The meat is dredged in seasoned flour and browned in oil, then simmered in beef broth with turnips, carrots, potatoes, and mushrooms.

      My Note: I have been making this receipe for over 55 years -- when I was first introduced to bear meat! It is fantastic! I have also altered the water ingrediant and used a can of cream of mushroom so that there is some "gravy" to pour all over. On occassion, I have seen some people wrinkle their nose at the thought of eating bear meat but when I serve this, they change their minds! Many times, they can't even tell the difference! A stomach doesn't care as long as it's good and this is one of the best. Add/subtract you favorite veggies and enjoy!
    5. 5
      I also added 3 stalks celery, sliced, and sometime a can of cream of mushroom soup.
    6. 6
      Or I added Guinness beer to the slow cooker with out one quarts water.
    7. 7
      I fried the meat in a pot, so when I added water, it would get all the brown bits stuck in the pan. Since we were given this meat, not harvested by us, I was unsure how old it was and how it was prepared, so I added 1 T of vinegar to the water. This tenderizes the meat while cooking and does not leave a vinegary taste. Also added the salt at the end.
    8. 8
      If you didn't have any bear, but beef stew meat. And needed a recipe for turnips and this is very good. I also added some whole allspice and parsnip, as well as whole pepper kernels instead of ground. I'd only suggest to add the turnips and mushrooms about 1/2hr before the end as they got rather soft. Otherwise it's very tasty, even my 15mo old enjoyed it!
