BEAVER OR RACCOON ROAST WITH BARBECUE SAUCE
Beaver with Sour Cream
Deep Fried Beaver
Country Style Beaver
Beaver is a fine textured red meat. Fat deposits are found outside or between muscles, much like venison. While the meat will not dry out while cooking as fast as venison it will dry out faster than most lean cuts of beef. Unlike venison, the fat is not as likely to become rancid. Removal is however recommended, especially deposits inside both the front and rear legs which contain glands. The castor glands are found in the lower abdominal cavity. As with other internal organs, fluids escaping will give the meat an off or bitter flavor. Castor glands should be frozen and sold or given to a trapper who can in turn sell the glands to be used by the perfume industry.
Also unlike deer, beaver needs to be soaked overnight in salt water to remove blood from the meat. Trapped beaver do not have a chance to bleed out.
Cutting up a dressed beaver requires special attention to bone structure or most meat will end up on soup bones. Meat tends to cut easier when it contains some ice crystals. Most of the best meat on the beaver will be found on the hams and along the back bone. The larger muscles attest to the powerful back legs and tail. The tender loin or back strap found along both sides of the top of the back is wider at the shoulders and tapers to a point near the hams. The tender loin is found inside the body cavity at about the middle of and to either side of the back. Steaks are difficult to cut from the ham area. Most meat will be chunks or strips. The flanks, between ribs and the hams, are often strong tasting either by nature or contamination by body fluids.
Many of your favorite venison recipes will probably work with beaver.

I liked the sweet potato recipe and here is another.
Peel and cut the sweet potatoes to about the same size as the baby carrots.
Dice the onion
Cook off the bacon in a large skillet. Remove bacon to paper towels to drain.
Place carrots onions and sweet potatoes in skillet and fry on low with a good sprinkle of powdered ginger. When the carrots are soft add the bacon crumbled back in. That is some good chow.

I knew I did that wrong so here it are.
Beaver ATLANTA SPECIAL RECIPE
1 beaver (8-10 lbs.)
1 bay leaf
2 med. onions
1-2 garlic cloves
Celery leaves - optional
Salt and pepper
Remove all fat from beaver. Cut up as you do rabbit. Soak overnight in salt water. Parboil until about half-cooked in water with the bay leaf, onions, and garlic. Celery may or may not be added. Drain, roll in flour and brown in hot fat, season with salt and pepper. Bake in covered pan in a moderate oven until tender. Gravy may be made from the drippings. Plan the same number of servings as from a similar weight of pork (8 oz. per serving). Beaver is very rich.
FRIED BEAVER RECIPE
1 small beaver (20 lbs.), cleaned and skinned, cut into serving pieces, strips or cubes
6 slices bacon
1 tsp. seasoning salt
Remove fat from beaver and soak overnight in cold water. Drain. Cook in small amount of water until tender, then fry with bacon and seasoning salt. Variation: substitute hickory-smoked seasoning salt for plain seasoning salt.
BEAVER TAIL RECIPE
Hold over open flame until rough skin blisters. Remove from heat. When cool, peel off skin. Roast over coals or simmer until tender.

I came up with this one on Aug 2.
Plenty of Olive Oil (have about 1/2 Cup available)
Creamy Peanut butter (about 1/2 Cup)
3 Tbsp honey
Salt & Pepper to taste
Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
Trim chicken if necessary. Drizzle a little Olive Oil on the chicken and rub down with salt, pepper and about 1 tsp honey.
In med skillet, heat about 1/4 cup of olive oil (save the rest in case sauce becomes too thick) until plenty hot. Add penut butter and stir frequently to create a sauce. Add about 2 tsp honey for sweetness. Once sauce is "saucy" add chicken, reduce to medium heat, and cover. Flip chicken when necessary. Make sure to stir the sauce around frequently. Add additional oil if necessary.
You can save the penut sauce and serve it over white rice with fresh vegetable stir fry.

Cheese Sauce for steamed veggies:
1/2 C. Whole Milk
2 tsp worchestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 slices AMERICAN cheese
1/2 C sharp cheddar (shredded)
Heat milk in saucepan until boiling. Reduce heat and add all liquid ingredients. Add everything else. Stir frequently over medium high heat. If it takes too long to get to a gravy consistency (that's where you want it) add extra shredded cheese.

Beef & Broccoli
1 lb well marbled beef
1/3 cup of oyster sauce
4 tbsp of peanut oil
1 lb broccoli florets (can substitute frozen broccoli)
1 large yellow onion
1 bell pepper (any color)
2 carrots (optional, but nice for color and texture)
Slice beef into thin strips, onion and pepper should be a rough chop. Carrots, if you add them, round slices like for a stew. Broccoli small (bite size) whole florets.
In a large wok or pan add 2 tbsps of oil on med-hi to hi heat. Put in beef strips and half of the onion stir until beef is browned. Add 2 tbsp of oil again put in rest of veggies and stir for 2 minutes. If you opted for the frozen broccoli , watch those because if you stir too much they fall apart...so toss don't stir. Lastly lower the heat to a simmer and add in oyster sauce, stir/toss until all veggies and beef are coated.
This serves 3... well in my family it only serves 3.
