Candied Bear Backstrap – MWF Field to Fork

Harvesting a black bear provides hunters with endless opportunities to create tasty meals that the whole family will enjoy. From stews to burgers, roasts to hams and everything in between; bear meat is delicious, versatile and healthy. Black bears, like any other wild game, require proper field handling, processing, and cooking methods to create the excellent table fare that it is so well known for.

Check out this Manitoba Wildlife Federation Field to Fork segment, where Noel Linsey shares one of his favourite bear recipes, Candied Bear Backstrap.
