    Default Black Bear Roast

    Soak the defrosted roast in buttermilk for 24 hrs. Drain and put roast in crock pot, half fill crock pot with fresh buttermilk and add water to thin a bit. 1/2 of an onion, a few small chunks of garlic, one pack of dry onion soup mix, salt and pepper and slow cook for 8-10 hours

    Enjoy!!

    The only reason I could ever see is if it was a dump bear and you really needed to kill the bad taste. Otherwise I would never do that. I want bear to taste like bear, same as any other game the last thing I want is for everything to taste like beef.

    Because it doesn't taste like the food they are used to eating from the fast food joints that most people eat at these days, so they have to kill the real taste.
    It makes you wonder , do they also treat their beef roasts and steaks this way ??? , just imagine a "filet mignon"that has been soaked in buttermilk, " double yuck".

    It softens the meat. Give it a try.....trust me you will taste the difference.
    We do not shoot dump bears, our bears are feed with molasses and dry dog food.....spoiled brats

    Huntmachine I've always thought that the main use of buttermilk was to kill the strong flavour of some game meat, hence my statement. I never really considered it for a meat tenderizer until you mentioned it later, but after googling it I see it works well for that as a light acidic solution. So thanks for sharing. However I would still be somewhat concerned about losing too much flavour from the bear meat by actually cooking it in buttermilk as well, but that's just me. I bet it just falls apart though. I can think of some old rut crazed buck meat that was tough even with the better cuts that could have benefited from that technique.
