So I am hoping to put some Cat meat in the freezer in the next week. Anyone have some ideas or recipes for Mt. Lion meat? Thanks all. FA
E. Donnal Thomas had one in one of his books.
My mom used to take small chunks batter them then fry We called them lion mcnuggets
Best wild meat I ever ate was Mt. Lion meat... Was when I went to a hunting guide school at 18 and the outfitter's wife running the training cooked the meals for us, but I was too young and dumb to ask for her recipe... She also cooked the best meatloaf I ever ate, it was bearloaf, she was a heck of a cook... Wish I'd have her recipes now...8^(((
Backstraps in a great mustard sauce 1 in thick on charcoal or wood grill
I just put mine in a slow cooker with some onion soup mix. It tasted amazing.
I would imagine any pork recipes would suffice. I've never killed or ate one but I hear they are similar to pork.
Very similar to lean cuts of pork. I like a roast seasoned with Tony Cacheres seasoning braised in the Dutch oven with Vidalia onion and beer as the cooking liquid. 3-6 hours at 300 F covered

If I gave you a boneless pork chop and a mountain lion fillet, you would not know the difference. As said above any recipe for pork will work. No need to try to use a slow cooker or cover it in spices or marinade to mask a gamey flavor. You’ll love it. Mountain lion, the other white meat.
Mule power exactly. Just cook well done not rare.

Treat main muscles like veal, and slice into cutlets. Very delicious and lean meat. Marsala, Saltimboca, Francaise, etc..
We prefer crock pot pork carnita recipes for it, but it’s been delicious no matter how we make it!

sweet n sour over rice, or schintzel both are awesome.

Too funny, that's a good one...8^)))
Probably funnier than he intended >;-)
I love my steak cooked blue (below rare). You can cook pork medium rare now. I have heard mnt lion tastes amazing and look forward to getting one in the next few years. I am sad to hear you have to cook it well done.
Thanks all. Tagged out on a beauty on Day 1. I'll be updating a prior post with my hunt result and pic. Looking forward on getting the meat in the freezer and on a plate soon.
DonV domestic pork is monitored for Tricihina worm infestation, wild hog, wild cats and bears are still a risk.
