Sweet-N-Sour Bear


Bear meat must be cooked thoroughly. I prefer using a younger bears if possible; it can be cooked very well done and will still be tender.




2 lb. Bear Meat Cubed to 1 Inch

Cup Flour

Cup Shortening

Teaspoon Salt

Teaspoon Pepper

Cup Water

Cup Red Wine Vinegar

3-Tablespoon Soy Sauce

1-Cup Apricot-Pineapple Preserves

1 Medium Bell Pepper Diced


Sprinkle bear cubes with salt and pepper, coat with flour. Brown well over medium heat in shortening (do not cover).

After browning add water, wine vinegar, and soy sauce, cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Add preserves and peppers, cover and simmer for an additional 30 minutes. Sweet -n- Sour Bear serves well over white rice or pan-fried Chinese noodles. Mashed or baked potatoes, gravy, and hot bread rolls compliment well.
