Many people shy from cooking wild goose because it tends to be tough and dry. This simple recipe will show you how to have mouth-watering, tender meat that will taste like prime rib and have you making this healthy meal again and again.
1Trim all silver sinew from the surface of each goose breast half. (This is one of the keys to tender goose). Place in a ziploc bag with olive oil, soy sauce, garlic and thyme. Marinate overnight.
2Tear romaine into bite-sized pieces. Cut tomatoes in half. Dice pepper. Assemble salad with lettuce, tomatoes, pepper, carrots, gorgonzola cheese, and crunchy onions.
3Remove goose from marinade. Put one tablespoon butter on top of half breast, wrap with one slice turkey bacon tucking one tablespoon butter under bacon on the underside. Repeat with the second half breast.
4Heat grill for a high heat. Place goose breast halves on foil and place on grill. Grill to medium-rare. To do this, grill on each side 4 minutes. Turn 1/4 turn and grill on each side 2 more minutes. Do not overcook - this is the other key to tender goose.
5Remove from heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute through the meat and keeps it juicy.
6Slice thinly, 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Meat will be reddish-pink on the inside. It will look and taste like prime rib - hence the name. Add to salad and toss with salad dressing.
