Moose is eaten during the hunting season. The meat is darkly red and can be used for various dishes such as hamburgers, stews and tournedos. Traditional cowberry compote is a perfect match. If you can’t buy moose, venison is a good substitute.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
30g butter
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 moose tournedos
100g chanterelles
or 100g other mushrooms
Cowberry compote, to serve

Salad

Quantity Ingredient
200g fresh kale, finely shredded
2 carrots, peeled and cut into thin batons
2 dessert apples, peeled, cored and cubed
2 tablespoons walnut oil
or 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
salt
pepper

Balsamic almonds

Quantity Ingredient
100g blanched almonds
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Method

  1. To start the salad, mix the kale, carrots and apples in a bowl.
  2. Toast the almonds in a hot dry frying pan, stirring constantly so that they do not burn. When lightly browned and fragrant, add the honey and let it caramelise. Add the balsamic vinegar and simmer until the liquid has evaporated. Set the almonds aside to cool on a piece of baking paper, then chop them and add to the kale salad together with the oil and the balsamic vinegar. Season the salad with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  3. In a frying pan, heat the butter and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and fry the tournedos for 5–6 minutes on each side. Meanwhile, clean the chanterelles with a dry brush. Remove the tournedos from the frying pan and set aside to rest. Add the remaining oil to the frying pan and cook the mushrooms for 5 minutes.
  4. Serve with moose tournedos with the chanterelles on top and the salad and cowberry compote on the side.
