What the hell is a caribou, and why would you want to eat one? Because you can. Rudolph was a red-nosed caribou, and what an annoying little bastard he was (‘She thinks I’m cute’). He deserved to be eaten. Actually, caribou are more commonly known as reindeer. Fun fact: both males and females have antlers. That should make for an interesting mating party.
- 16 oz Caribou steak
- 4 tablespoons of butter
- 1 chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons of sherry
- 2 tablespoons of brandy
- 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire
- 3 tablespoons of A-1 steak sauce
- 1 tablespoon of chopped chives
- 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
- Salt & pepper
Chop your onion, keeping in mind that you’ll probably cry like a baby while doing this. Cook the onions in 2 tablespoons of butter until golden. Pound the caribou steak with a mallet to tenderize. If you don’t have a mallet, a claw hammer is fine. That was a joke… do not use a claw hammer. Sear the meat over high heat in the butter & onions, about 2 min on each side should do.
Now add the sherry, A-1 sauce, the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, Worcestershire sauce, chives, parsley, pepper and salt.
Reduce to medium heat and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add the brandy, bring to the table, flame and serve.
