Roasted Grouse

Baked or Roasted Grouse is a fall favorite at our house. Grouse is plentiful during deer hunting season. They are beautiful and tasty birds. Try this recipe next time you bag a bird or two: 

Season bird with salt and pepper.
Wrap well with thick slices of bacon
Place birds in a roasting pan with about 1/2 of water
Roast for 45 minutes at 300 degrees
Finish off or brown the bird for an additional 10 to 15 minutes
Serve with mashed potatoes and your favorite veggies. 

Venison Adobo (Adobong Usa)

"Adobo" is a popular dish using garlic and vinegar. Adobo is also a popular dish in the Philippines. Each region in the Philippines has their own version of adobo.  
Venison Adobo
Adobo is also widely-known in Latin American countries especially in regions colonized by Spain. Here are 2 examples of venison adobo for you. 


2 lbs venison (sirloin bit size pieces works great)
1 garlic (smashed or diced)
1/2 cup soy sauce (use full strength, not low sodium)
1/2 cup coconut vinegar (apple cider vinegar works too)
1-2 pieces of bay leaves
3 tbsp cooking oil (canola or olive)
Black pepper to taste
Optional - chile to taste
Optional - 1 tsp white sugar

Marinade - coat the venison in soy sauce, black pepper. Marinade the venison overnight. 1-5 hours will work as well.)

Brown the venison pieces in cooking oil. 

Add soy sauce, vinegar, and bay leaves. Add optional the optional chile and sugar.

Simmer for at least 1 hour.

If the sauce evaporates, add enough soy sauce and vinegar to keep the venison moist.

Regional variation - After simmering the venison for at least an hour, add 1/2 cup of coconut milk. (our household adores this version of Adobong Usa).

We serve our hunters a wide variety of foods.
Harvest banquet served for our
hunters in October 2013 using local fruits and ingredients.
Our menu is prepared by a chef using local ingredients. As much as possible, we try our best to patronize business in Oroville and Tonasket. One of our favorite shops is Taber's in Oroville. They have the juiciest peaches and nectarines. Their apples are to die for! I can get a bit sad when we start seeing signs of fall since I know the fruit stands will be closing for the season soon. Taber's also has a selection of wine that is labeled Copper Mountain.
