Ingredients

moose ribs (bone in)
2 large
potatoes
2 large
carrots
2 medium
apples
2 medium
onions

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut the vegetables into larger sized pieces..no need to peel except the onion..

2Put vegetables etc on bottom of pan and add the ribs to the pan....You can use pretty well any root type vegetable...
Cover tightly, put in oven for 1/2 hr at 400 F, turn down heat to 250 degrees..

3Leave in oven for 5 hours. check after 5 hours for doneness. If ribs are thick they will take 8 hrs....

4When done to your liking take out of pan and put on BBQ and grille for a few minutes with your favorite sauce.

5Notes:

This recipe can also be used with caribou ribs...Caribou or deer would not take quite as long to cook...

It is imperative to NOT add spices or salt & pepper as the recipe asks. You will NOT be eating the vegetables in the bottom of the pan, as they will be covered in moose fat, & mushy after cooking for 5 hours. I've had great success with pre-cooking ribs in the oven one day, then bbqing for company the next.
