Have you ever had bear? I hear it can be a little greasy.

Guys in Alaska asked me to bring all my stuff for California Chili the next time I came up [which I did], and they'd provide the Meat [which they did].

The returned to the Kitchen from their Meaty House outside with a quarter Side of Bear [which I'd never had or used in Chili].

They loved it
But for me ... Never Again.

I've made chili with many meats including Venison...this was way beyond Gamey.

That website is quite a find!

They had this treasure:
ARMADILLO IN MUSTARD SAUCE RECIPE

1 1/4 cups dry white wine
1/2 cup oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed (optional)
1/4 cup butter
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. rosemary
1 med. onion, sliced thin
1 armadillo, cleaned and cut into serving pieces
1 1/4 cups light cream
1 tbsp. brown mustard (e.g. Gulden's) or Poupon Dijon
1 tbsp. cornstarch

Mix all ingredients of marinade and add armadillo. Marinate about 8 hrs., turning meat occasionally. Remove armadillo and reserve marinade.

Melt butter in deep skillet and brown armadillo pieces. Pour in marinade and bring to a boil. Stir in seasoning, cover and simmer until tender (about 1 - 1 1/4 hours.) Remove skillet from the fire and place armadillo pieces on a warmed platter.

Mix mustard and cornstarch, then mix in cream. Return skillet to low heat and stir in this mixture a little at a time. Stir sauce until hot, but not boiling, and thickened. Pour sauce over armadillo. Serve with steamed rice.
