While we were at our December Wild Pig Field to Fork Camp a coyote was caught in a trap by the ranch staff. Not wanting to waste, Justin and I saw this as an opportunity to cook and try coyote. Neither one of us had heard positive things about the flavor of the meat, but usually, stories about bad food are some sort of hearsay stemming from a person who never actually cooked the meat.
Someone suggested this recipe, a Korean dish often made with dog meat or beef. Though dog meat has never been on our list of things to try, we thought coyote would stand in just fine.
We had some Korean ingredients on hand, so we used them to make our own version of the soup, complete with coyote sirloin tip from the hindquarters.
We were very impressed with how the soup turned out – it was delicious! The coyote was fork tender and tasted great with the spicy Korean flavors.
Though neither of us are predator hunters, we would definitely accept some coyote meat to make this dish again!
