Caribou Steak

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.
