Isn’t goose greasy? I’ve heard it a million times. There is a significant difference between wild goose and domestic goose. Wild goose is not greasy, and in fact the meat has very little fat, and it quite lean. While goose breasts are part of quite a few recipes, one of the fewer known treats of the wild goose is the giant legs or thighs. This recipe turns out well for those that don’t like the wild or “gamey” taste of wild goose. For those adhering to the paleo or primal lifestyle this fits that description. Now you just need to go out and get some wild geese or have a friend that hunts.

I really like simple recipes and this is that. If you start in the morning this will be ready for dinner, it takes a while for the meat to soften up and fall off the bone. This is what you want. So get your slow cooker ready and set it to HIGH.
1. Heat up some oil in a frying pan and coat the goose legs with a flour mixture, Fish Crisp or Shake and Bake in order to coat the legs and give them a nice browned exterior. Cook them quickly on medium high heat until the exterior is nice and brown.
2. Cut potatoes, carrots, celery and add to pot.
3. Add beef stock and spices and close pot.
4. Crack leg bones on goose legs to allow flavour from marrow to go into stew.
5. Cook for 5-7 hours on high or until the meat is easily pulled from legs with a fork.
