Background on Bear Stew

Every year we like to try a new dish for New years dinner. Back in 2008, we went to one of our favorite butcher shops that is located on the Norwegian-Swedish border, which has a large Wild Game section. We saw Bear meat for sale which we had never seen advertised before any where. This of course peaked Hubby’s attention and he decided to buy the right arm. The butcher informed us that this was a rare delicacy for the shop to have. He then went on to say that the game and wild life department along with the help of a few hunters had to put this bear down. When we ask why, he informed us that this bear had killed a hunter. As he told us the story I remembered seeing the news report about this bear attack.

My Hubby loves to have unusual stories to tell at the dinner table. He couldn’t wait to tell our New Years guest,that he wasn’t only serving them a Killer Bear, but also a Man Eating Bear. And that the cut of meat they are eating is the Bear’s right arm, which was the bear’s weapon of choice. Of course everyone invited was aware that we would be serving Brown Bear Stew, but no one knew the story behind the Bear.

Hubby waited until we were well into the meal and everyone had complimented the Bear Stew. Most of the guest were getting 2nd servings when one of them ask, where and how we were able to get Bear meat. That was the door my Hubby had been so patiently waiting for.

My Hubby, being himself, told them the story of the Bear in a way that could only be described as ”Redneck-Country”. He even pulled a tooth-pick out of his pocket and chewed on it, while he told the story. He really had everyone’s full attention and by nights end the Brown Bear Stew was consumed.

  1. Great story and it answered a lot of my questions. It is such a good story that I think I may be able to dine out on that one myself- a great supper party tale to bring a gasp of surprise from my friends!- Karen.

Welcome to TIP. ABC, CBS, NBC and all the cable news channels are all bought and paid for and report what they are told to report. The MSM lies to and instigates people into political argument and gossip that leads to dead-end roads and distracts from the real issues. There is much better informational news reporting away from the Democrat and Republican tail-spinning arguments that are usually rooted in confusion and hate.. TIP is your alternative.
