  • Slow cooker
  • Cast iron pan
  • Large knife
  • Cutting board


  • 1 ½ - 2 lb moose meat (or other red meat)
  • 2 tbsp bacon fat or lard (or other cooking oil/fat)
  • 4 cups bone broth (or store-bought beef broth)
  • 4 large turnips
  • 3 carrots
  • 4 fresh garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 3 bay leaves


  • Dice up your turnips, carrots, onions and garlic.
  • Add about 2 tablespoons of bacon fat or lard to a cast iron pan on medium heat.
  • Brown your moose meat until it’s got some nice colour on it. Then put your meat in the bottom of your slow cooker.
  • Next add your onions and garlic to the cast iron pan and sauté until they start browning and getting fragrant. Add those to your slow cooker.
  • If you want you can also brown your turnips and carrots before adding those to the slow cooker as well.
  • Once you’ve got everything into your slow cooker, pour in 4 cups of bone broth or beef broth. This should almost completely cover your meat and vegetables. If not, feel free to add a bit of additional broth or water.
  • Add in the remaining seasonings – salt, pepper, thyme, and bay leaves.
  • Set your slow cooker to 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. I highly recommend going low and slow if you can for the best results!
