From field to plate: here’s her recipe for Bacon Wrapped Ptarmigan poppers which she harvested herself in Alaska!!
Bacon Wrapped Ptarmigan poppers
6 Ptarmigan (12 breasts)
1 bell pepper I used the orange peppers (or Jalapeño is awesome also!)
Yoshida's marinade "cracked pepper and garlic"
12 strips of bacon
Tooth picks to hold everything in place
Marinade the breasts for at least 2 hours, the longer the better.
Cut peppers in long strips. Take marinated breast and place one pepper strip on each breast and wrap with bacon.
Use the tooth picks to hold in place. Grill on the BBQ until everything is well cooked. 15-20 mins. Enjoy!!
Homemade Wild Game Chili from Rockstarlette Outdoors owner, Joni Marie
(This recipe is Gluten Free)
Wild Game Chili
1 lb of ground wild game meat (I have used wild turkey, moose, bear and caribou)
2 cans of stewed tomatoes
1 can of tomato paste
2-3 stalks of celery chopped
1 tbsp of parsley
1/2 of an Anaheim Jalapeño pepper, chopped (vary this according to your tolerance for spicy food)
A pinch of Cayenne pepper (vary this according to your tolerance for spicy food)
2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 Tbsp oregano
1/2 purple onion, chopped
2 cans of beans -rinsed and drained (I like to use black beans but any bean could be used)
Shredded cheese as a topping, or sour cream
Cook wild game burger in pan with olive oil, garlic, onion and celery
Once game meat is cooked, add in parsley, oregano, cayenne pepper and jalapeño - stir and cook a few minutes
Add tomato paste, stewed tomatoes and beans (rinse and drain beans from can before adding)
Simmer everything together over low heat for 20-30 minutes,
Option: Serve topped with cheese or sour cream
I did not add any salt in this recipe as I am on a low salt diet - the stewed tomatoes have some salt in
them and I found it to be plenty - but you could add salt to taste to this recipe if you wanted!! Enjoy!
Elk and Wild Chanterelle Mushroom Stroganoff from Rockstarlette Outdoors California Rep Nancy (she foraged the Chanterelle Mushrooms herself and harvested the Elk)!
1 lb ground elk or venison
1 yellow onion chopped
2 cups chopped wild Chanterelle or other mushrooms of your choice
1 1/2 cups coconut milk or regular milk
2 cups beef broth
2 cubes or 2 tsp of dried beef bouillon
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup coconut milk or regular milk
2 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Parsley for garnish
2 cups egg noodles or small pasta noodles of your choice
- Prepare noodles and set aside
- In large skillet over medium heat brown elk and remove from pan. Leave about 1 tbsp grease in pan. If your meat is super lean, you can add a bit of butter to pan
- Add onions and mushrooms to pan and season with salt and pepper. Sauté about 5-7 minutes stirring frequently
- Add beef broth, 1 1/2 cup milk, bouillon, and Worcestershire sauce to pan
- In small bowl, whisk together remaining milk and flour until smooth. Whisk into pan until smooth.
- Return meat to pan and simmer for 5-10 minutes
- Toss prepared noodles into sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with parsley
Note: You can use a variety of ground meat for this dish, but I prefer wild game...preferably elk or venison. I used foraged wild Chanterelle mushrooms, but you can use different types as well. Using coconut milk is the non-dairy version (which is how I make it) and I also use gluten free noodles, but you can use whatever you prefer.

A couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce (I used Lea & Perrins)
