Korean Pulled Bear Sandwich

4.0 from 2 votes

I was given a bear hindquarter from Ryan and Emily from The Way We Hunt after their success on our Oregon spring bear trip, and this was the first thing I made with it. I wanted something simple but a bit different than the standard sloppy joe or pulled sandwich, so I used some flavors more common with Korean BBQ: asian pears, gochujang, fresh garlic, red onion, and ginger. I went with a jarred Korean BBQ Marinade as well to add some extra flavor, but you can easily make your own. Throw all the ingredients in the crockpot overnight with some venison stock, and you’ll be enjoying this delicious meal all week. Feel free to adjust the spice level to your liking. I served it on a bun with some cole slaw with sriracha mayo and some fries. Enjoy!
