This blogger posted up a recipe for some beaver stew and a review to go with it. He said it was “fantastic”:
Well, it was *way* better than I expected at least. I followed the
beef stew recipe that I usually make, but tossed in half of a beaver
carcass instead of cubed stew beef. Other than the shape of the meat
(or rather, the bones), I really couldn’t tell the difference. Even
the color and texture of the meat was similar to stewed beef, very
tender and a tad stringy.
There’s something new for adventurous trappers to try.
