We really enjoyed the onion mushroom gravy this makes. This was my first time cooking moose, and I didn't get it tender enough, but that was on me, not the recipe. Some changes I made included cooking it with some fresh oregeno and thyme since I had those fresh herbs in my kitchen at the time. Also, in step 9 I seasoned it with cayenne and sage. Next time I would use fresh stage during the cooking stage. Lastly, I served it with sour cream which we found to be a great refreshing addition to a very flavorful dish. The other thing I would do different is use half&half instead of the heavy cream I used to keep the gravy a bit thinner than I produced. Overall a very enjoyable dish!
