View Full Version : Another little twist on Crock Pot Goose

There are some great crock pot recipes out there, but this is a little twist I've tried that turns out great and is super simple.

-Cut 4 clean goose fillets into 1 1/2" square (roughly) chunks
-Season with garlic salt, pepper, and your favorite herb (I love Basil with goose)
-Toss / roll in flour
-Place in a pan with about 3 tbsp hot oil to just brown the exterior. Add in batches as necessary to not bring the pan temp too low or you will have grey watery meat (This step is important because it adds flavor and allows the meat to get tender but remain in chunks)
-Place goose in crock pot
-Sprinkle on 1 package of Onion Soup Mix
-Add 3+ tbsp Worchestshire Sauce (THIS is the key for me)
-Reseason to taste
-Add water (or beef broth) to nearly the top of the meat (I've just used water with great results too if you don't have beef broth)

Cover and cook on low for 6 - 8 hours.

The meat should still be in rough chunks but be absolutely 'fork tender'. I like the way it looks and the texture more than when the meat turns into mushy little strings. The flour naturally thickens the sauce over time, and the Worchestshire Sauce REALLY brings out the "beef" flavor. This serves 6 people depending on appetite! My wife and daughter LOVE this and it's very simple.
