Moose Eye of Round Steak

As foodies I feel very lucky that most of our family and many of our friends are also foodies. A lot of good times, laughter and sometimes tears are shared whenever we get together but one thing that remains constant is an abundance of good food!

There are a lot of great foods coming out of the garden right now. We are really enjoying vegetable trays as something a bit different from salads. My absolute favourite dip of the day is made using a garlic, onion mix from Windermere Farms. It has a nice, clean and refreshing taste. I make the dip with mayonnaise, sour cream and the dried seasonings using the mason jar method. The flavour is perfect with fresh vegetables. It's light yet tasty and flavourful. Pictured is the vegetable tray I made for the two of us. It isn't very big but it is all garden fresh.

Moose Eye of Round Steak

One of our friends does not eat any domestic meats. He brought us some moose meat in the form of steaks and sausage. Pictured is an eye of round moose steak. Don't let the size fool you as that is all very lean meat! Unlike venison which tends to have a gamey flavour, moose meat tastes almost identical to beef except a little goes a long way. Honestly you really can't tell the difference other than the moose meat is leaner. The moose eye of round was grilled then served with niblet corn, steamed potatoes and a side of cucumbers with garden fresh tomatoes topped with a little of the Windermer dip.
