Anyone here eaten Mountain lion? I cut the loin and round off of my cougar and I'm gonna give it a try. I found 8 recipes browsing the net.

Can't be any worse than pork. I grew up on a hog farm in Illinois. We finished our pigs and steers with grain in the same feedlot........The pigs would wait at the rear of the cows to "recycle" the corn. No way can my lion have a diet worse than our pigs!

I've heard of smoking the hams like, well... a ham. The people who did it, said it served up real well and the "guests" at their party loved the pork. :shock: :D

I made a pot roast out of a mountain lion round.

Nothing fancy, a little red wine while I browned the meat. Threw in potatoes, onions, carrots, celery and green peppers......some water and worchestershire. Slow cooked it to well done (to avoid trichinosis) in a crock pot. The meat looks and tastes like pork.

My only regret is I wish I would have saved a little more meat.

Mountain Lion Steaks:

> Put 4 Cougar round steaks, cut 3/4" thick, in a casserole dish.
> Salt and pepper to taste
> Add a layer of sliced onions
> Pour a can of diced tomatoes on top

Cook in 300° oven for 2 1/2 hours
Cover with sliced cheese
Place back in oven until cheese is melted


Good for any wild game....the wilder, the better.

I'm not so sure it would taste any better, but I'm sure it would be easier to swallow that first bite.

This was my first Mountain Lion. It had little wild flavor; tastes like pork more than anything.
