READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Chuck in Killbuck

Here's an old stand by for a nice bear dinner. I found this in my hand written recipe saves but I've also found something like it on the net so I'm not the only one who uses it. If ya like bear...give it a try.

I'm reluctant to eat bear but I always try something once and this turned out fab. A friend had given us a small bear roast which I sliced very thin and browned first, then removed so I could carmelize the onions then everything back into the pot and it simmered a few hours due to busy schedules. My girls don't like mushrooms but they enjoyed the meat and sauce. My hubby and I loved it and so did my husband's co-workers.
