   The moose that is taken late in the season & destined to feed many Alaskan
   families is often a dry & lean animal. To lovers of fat beef, late-season
   moose isn't much of a treat. While living in Flennallen one winter, we
   learned from a family in Gakona how to make a sauce to eliminate some of
   the problem. It’s good on fat moose or beef, too.
   
   In frying pan over medium heat bring fat to hot. Combine all vegetables
   except mushrooms in a bowl & salt & pepper to taste. Pour them into hot
   grease & saute for 3 mins. Add water & bring to a boil. Cook for 10 mins,
   stirring occasionally. Drain mushrooms, add them to sauce & heat for
   another 2 mins. Add extra liquid if mixture appears too dry. Serve either
   on or beside meat.
