Longhunter's Bear Roast

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Top Review by thom0573

Recipe worked, well, but I had to guess what to do with the onions and celery. Sautéed onions in butter for a minute while the bear was at 500, and covered the bear with them and the celery when dropping the temp to 325. Turned out okay, but was that what I was supposed to do with them?

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Cut deep slits in top of roast and insert garlic slices.
  3. Salt and pepper the meat well.
  4. Lay a few fat slices under the roast, put it in preheated oven, and roast 20 minutes or so until the fat browns.
  5. Turn the heat down to 300-325 degrees and roast about 2 1/2 hours.
  6. When done, remove roast and the fat cracklings to a hot pan or platter.
  7. Gravy: Retain 2-3 tablespoons of fat in the roasting pan with the drippings and in it saute the finely chopped onions and celery.
  8. Stir in the flour and herbs.
  9. Stir on a low flame until thickens, stir in the herbs.
  10. Add Worcestershire sauce.
