Roast Squirrel

roast squirrel

Let’s not be squeamish about this – I cooked a squirrel. I didn’t shoot it myself, I bought it at the farmer’s market. And why not? It’s meat, just like rabbit and lamb and chicken is meat. It’s not a LOT of meat, squirrels being quite small, but it is surprisingly tasty. And not like you’d expect – I expected it to taste gamey or like rabbit but it actually tastes like a cross between turkey and lamb.

As it’s quite lean, I wrapped it in bacon and roasted it for half an hour. Because it was an experiment I didn’t make a big meal out of it, just cooked it on its own. It would probably have been nicer in a casserole slow-cooked for a couple of hours. However, like I say, it was tasty and I would eat it again. Certainly if we plunge into a hideous depression and can’t afford more usual meats, squirrel could earn a place at the table. If you do happen to see one for sale, pick it up and have a go.

    This looks awesome.

    I really must try to get hold of a, preferably dead, squirrel and see what I can cook from it. Casserole would be my first thought.

    Sick? For cooking and eating a squirrel? Please, explain why. I’m happy to discuss the rights and wrong with you if you’d care to offer a coherent argument.

    Or did you just want to leave a drive-by anonymous comment?

    Wow- you found a squirrel? My ex boyfriend’s gran had a book with a squirrel recipe in it. I wish I’d copied it down now!

    Those things look pretty scrawny to me. Was it enough for 2 people, or just you?

  5. Ginger Says:

    I haven’t seen squirrel on sale anywhere (but I’ve seen them in my garden, eating my plants,grrr!) but I think I’d give it a go.

  6. Dee Says:

    I don’t think I would be brave enough to eat a squirrel. I am Australian and I still haven’t worked up the courage to eat kangaroo yet.

  7. Antonia Says:

    Good for you for trying this out. I heard a radio piece recently about a chef who had started to serve squirrel in his restaurant… I’d certainly give it a try although I’m not sure that I could bring myself to cook it myself. Not sure why actually as I’m happy to cook rabbit and other ‘different’ meats. A cross between turkey and lamb sounds interesting!

  8. Grumblemouse Says:

    This being the internet I’m allowed to have double standards – I’m constantly shocked by people that get upset about the idea of eating dog or cat or horse but you know what – you can’t eat squirrels, they’re too amazing – humph.

  9. cheryl Says:

    I feed the squirrels in my backyard. They are like “pets” to me. Just as I could not imagine eating a cat or dog because of their “pet status”. I guess it’s a cultural thing.

    However, if I were starving, I would eat a squirrel. But not a dog or cat, I don’t think. Too much like cannibalism. I remember a relative of mine, talking about hard times in his family and how his father would hunt for meat. Oftentimes he would come home with a few squirrels and the mother, with the veggies she grew in the backyard, would make squirrel ragout.

  10. glen Says:

    Great eating. been eating them since i was a kid. going to cook some more pretty soon. also going to cook some deer meat. all very lean meats. better than stuff at grocery store. don’t be so squimmish!

    Good for you! I have two in the freezer we had to skin & gut ourselves as we have a friend who shoots vermin on a local farm and gave them to us. Just trying to figure out the best way to cook it. Grey squirrels are pests – despite being cute – and this is a good way of dealing with the problem. Really fiddly to skin though. Rabbit is a lot easier. Love your sausage and lentil casserole recipe by the way.

    Forgot to say – ignore the mean comments. We keep chickens as pets but we still eat ones from the supermarket (couldn’t eat our girls though!).

  13. Anonymous Says:

    What’s wrong with squirrel? The only thing that every kept me from eating it is the fact that I was always afraid it would taste gamy like venison—and I hate gaminess. I’ll have to give it a go if my uncle goes squirrel hunting this year.

    Also, what’s wrong with eating pets? I ate my pet cows and pet chickens growing up. And nothing’s tastier than a pup! Chien au vin, anyone?

  14. Squeemish Vegetarian Says:

    OH GOD….the photo looks like road kill! (just my opinion though….people should be free to eat whatever they choose….even if it is such a CUTE animal…keep away from our Aussie POSSUMS though!!!😉

  15. Trixy Says:

    Nope! Cannot bring myself to cook this one! To me squirrels are just rats with fluffy tails…urgh! Sorry…but no! Love your website though!

  16. Scarlett Says:

    To be honest, my initial reaction was “Ewww,” and yet I’m intrigued. I’ve never quite understood why eating squirrel is considered a mark of being a redneck in my area – it’s no grosser or cuter than any other animal. This would be something I’d consider, although I’m not sure whether I’d be able to get anyone to join me in that meal.

  17. kate Says:

    Maybe it is the vegetarian in me that says ewwww- and that it really does look like road kill. We are in a pretty urban area, so squirrels to us are pretty much our only wildlife. I think we appreciate them more because they are our only link to nature.

    Wouldn’t mind a recipe for all the blasted stray cats that turn over my garbage can, though. Is that coming soon?

  18. angelina Says:

    we’re in germany now and every grocery store here has rabbit in the meat section. at first my kids were grossed out because we have pet rabbits at home but we bought some last week and ate it. i’m pretty sure they’d give squirrel a go too. the 7 year old thought the rabbit tasted like frog legs.
    i looked for dog everywhere when i was in korea because i was curious to try it but every restaurant denied selling it. i think it was just because i was american and they thought i’d be upset. i had to settle on the pig uterus instead.

  19. fractionMan Says:

    Awesome stuff.

    I’ve been looking for something to do with the one in the freezer. My BBQ experiment with the other one didn’t work too well…

  20. Highland Court Says:

    I’m sorry, but growing up in california I’ve learned to love my little squirels. It would be hard for me to eat a squirel. Love your blog though.

  21. D. Says:

    those bushy tail buggers are yummy.
    used to bag em’ when i lived in a rural area and times were tough.
    my favorite way to prepare them was shitake ‘shroom teriaki style w/ dandelion greens from the chem-free lawn.
    only good for the younger ones though, the oldsters went into a stew.

    good times.

    i could not even eat the milk cow after a natural death.
    i’d b a poor livestock keeper.
    i bcome too attached, and as for slaughtering domestics, they trust u, prolly could’nt do it unless starving.

    now as for wild game, they KNOW they’re prey and have the God given tools to evade u.
    it is the natural human condition to hunt.
    how do u think our protein hungry brains evolved?

    quite difficult to hunt wild squirrels.
    they are VERY alert and it’s very hard to hit a target the size of a 25 cent piece (their heads, don’t wanna ruin what little meat is there, more humane too) streaking through the tree canopy 20-30 yards above your head w/ a .22LR.
    more sporting than deer hunting.
    my state’s squirrel season is long though and the daily limits are high, hard to approach that though.

    don’t knock it ’till u try it!

    to the Aussie: b careful w/ the ‘roos. i heard they’re all worm ridden. cook ’em really well.

        Squirrels are meat, all meat is game, pun intended. All that said, one of these seasons I’ll get a deer… those little tree rats are small. Now, we just finished a unit on edible bugs…I’m a teacher. Wanna talk about that!?

  24. Corey Says:

    In the southern states of the US, it is not uncommon at all to hunt and eat squirrel. In Louisiana where I grew up, there was even a sanctioned squirrel hunting season and many many people participated, not just those who were in “hard times”.

  25. Christine Says:

    I grew up in Louisiana too. Can still remember rather enjoying a warm bowl of squirrel mulligan even though my boyfriend tried to gross me out with the story of his Uncle Benny who pulled a squirrel skull from his stew, threw it over his shoulder, and kept eating!

  26. Tom Baker Says:

    I see them scurrying outside and running up and down the trees. I just don’t think I could do it. I’m sure it tastes fine, it’s just me.

  27. urchin Says:

    I’ve eaten squirrel – spatchcocked and barbequed and although tasty, I thought a longer slower cooking method would probably be better😀

    Incidentally, I don’t see why eating squirrel is sick? Presuming you eat other meats, a squirrel really is no different. – Personally, I find eating game more ethically sound than farmed meat, as wild animals have lived a natural life right up to the point they became dinner…….the most natural end for prey species.

    In fact I would go so far as to say that eating grey squirrels is ecologically sound – they are an introduced species in the UK and have almost driven out our own red squizzer entirely. If every UK citizen would eat a grey squirrel this weekend we would be opening up the opportunity for wee tufty and his pals to recolonise the woodlands.

  28. C.H. Says:

    Only a yankee or a city dweller who would be “lost” in the country would not approve of eating squirrel. Squirrel is actually a delicacy that one could say is truly American in origin. Native Americans ate them and the pioneers ate them as well. In my home state they are preferred fried with dumplings but I like roasting my squirrel. So, for those who only like to eat beef from a nasty and unsanitary Mid-Western slaughter farm, you are really missing out. It’s clean, untainted meat that really should be explored by those who are too squeamish to try anything other than a hotdog or some other form of mystery meat.

  29. Jack Murray Says:

    hmmm Rosted squirrels are yummy.. After rosting I spread some Patan ghee on it and it was more delicious rabbit’s meat.(I like rabits meat hell a lot)

  30. Squirrel Girl Says:

    My husband shot a ground squirrel in the neck. The kids got a great anatomy lesson. We Trager’ed the beast with Soulvlaki seasoning. The seasoning over powerd the mild taste of the meat. My daughter said it tasted like chicken, my son said it was roast beast. I found it a little disturbing to look at it and enjoy the meat at the same time. It was a bit tough though. Next time, when we’re starving, I thing we will slow roast it or stew it.

  31. Celina Tremel Says:

    @Jack : Hey I know that patan ghee. I used to put it on rosted goat meat. It is really good….🙂

  32. Bear Says:

    Well gang, I am an over-educated redneck who grew up eating my pets (80-90 head of Black Angus Cattle, 2-4 Hogs and the resultant piglets, a dozen chickens, wild deer, squirrels, rabbits, ect.) . Said as fact, not to offend, I have bottle raised young and turned them into the foam trays you buy in the grocery for the biggest part of my life, watching the original cycle of life and up to my elbows in birth, life and death. Get over It!!! Just because you don’t see how the meat gets on the butcher’s shelf doesn’t make it any less the taking of a life to sustain other lives. Way of the natural world – get over it.

    My pet peave has to do with the “game hunter” who takes a life for a trophy and does nothing with the rest of the animal – Nothing but WASTE!

  33. Lorelei Says:

    I first ate squirrel in the ozarks of Arkansas. It took me by surprize though cause I wasn’t there when it was cooked so I had no idea what I was eating. However I was so impressed by the taste I couldn’t resist getting the recipie. Next time you get a squirrel, debone it and slow cook it in an outside grill or in your oven with your favorite bar-b-que sauce. Its much tastier and looks much more appealing.

  34. Bear Says:

    You know, I tried squirrel in a local restauarant (a friend is an owner- chef and was trying some samples of “wild meats” his supplier wanted his to diversify into) and it wasn’t anything like I remembered. Come to find out that squirrel is being farmed and the strong, wild, rich and almost gamey flavor and firm texture of the meat I butchered myself is almost gone. It reminded me of house raised grain dark meat chicken with almost all the true flavors bred and fed out to match our vanilla tastes. Got me started thinking about buying a hunting rifle and getting back into the woods, but I have to admit I have no taste for hunting anymore and have frozen my tush off enough for a lifetime.

  35. Bear Says:

    Hey Lorelei! Have you ever cooked a large cut of (or whole) pork? Try slow, indirect heat and cook at about 225 deg until the big muscle on the back leg reaches at least 160 deg. It’s wonderful, but remember to brine, inject and/or fat wrap the meat – squirrel and most other wild meats have very little fat of their own and will dry out easily if not suplemented with another source. I really like a sugar and salt mix brine before hand and wraping the quartered meat with bacon. Good luck and good eating!

      Holy shit. Calm the fuck down. What’s the difference between eating squirrels and eating beef or chicken? The only difference I can think of is that squirrel tastes better.

      • Toi Says:

        tree squirrels lives in healthy environment: green trees, come down on the ground that usually is covered by dry fallen leaves, only dry clean & clear water from small creek in the forest, and they only eat nuts. My grand pa raises chickens and ducks on a farm. I compare environment squirrels to chickens, squirrels are way cleaner!

        Beksta, you go around and curse at other people for eating animal . Don’ t you eat any meat product? I have one best friend who is vegetarian. His main reason not to eat meat is because he says it is healthier choice, and he can get sufficient vitamin an nutritiens form veggie. Not that he love aninals so much that he has to give up eathing meat.

        Beksta, I think you should go to college and take nutrition and Environmental Management course so that you understand that every on this planet, Earth needs well balanced among: plans & living things or everything will be extincted and so as your diet! You need to balance out what you eat: meat, veggie, etc… or you will not have a chance to curse at other people. I suggest you to ask your mama about what balance means…

    • lungsludge77 Says:

      for starters learn how to spell, dimwit. and if you didn’t know squirrels will bite you. they will also eat baby birds and steal eggs from nests. they are “cruil” to other animals. they will chew other squirrel’s testicles off too. also they are EVERYWHERE. they can never be exhausted. every second one is run over by a car and the world keeps turning regardless. i delight in shooting them in the head with my pellet gun and watching them twitch and bleed before i rip their skin off and tear their guts out and roast them in the oven. i use every bit of it. the slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting. most people cringe at the thought of killing their own food because they are weak and cowardly. someone else is doing the killing for them because they haven’t got the constitution. before it came in a neat little package it was quite alive and it bled and died for you because that is the way of the world. we have the God given right to decide how the animals will be used on Earth: Genesis 9:1-3 says: “Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth. The fear and dread of you will fall upon all of the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air, upon every creature that moves along the ground, and upon all the fish of the sea; they are given into your hands. Everything that lives and moves will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, now I give you everything.”

    • Teresa Bryant Says:

      You should calm down, take a few deep breathes to help move some o2 that squirrel sized brain. I am a well educated upper middle class girl with 18 of the little grey rodents in my freezer right now. I shot them myself with a .17 marlin. I’m getting ready to make a big ol pot of stew. Maybe if you learned to spell and watch you potty mouth someone might take your comments seriously, but I doubt it. FYI I have a couple fur coats too, how do you like me now? Oh yeah, I drive an SUV as well.

  38. Bear Says:

    beksta,
    1. Not having enough to eat is disgusting too. Would you prefer to let the squirel population overrun the food available in an area and have them starve to death; that’s nature’s version of population control.
    2. Where do you think the meat in the grocery store comes from? Every cut of meat was once part of a living, breathing animal and is no different than the squirels, rabbits, cows, pigs or chickens harvested (yes – killed for eating) everyday by everyone from private individuals to corporate meat processing.
    3. I’m the wrong sex and the wrong species to be a bitch, and I suspect Roy is too.

    • lungsludge77 Says:

      haha! i don’t mean to be a jerk because i am glad you support the use of squirrels as a food source, but it is doubtful that squirrels will ever starve out. their food staples are plentiful and they are more than adaptable to finding alternative eats such as garbage scraps and such. i like that you attempted to provide a valid argument for population control even though you needn’t feel obligated to offer one to this beksta person. she is quite probably some teen tree hugger who lives with her mommy and daddy and has no idea about the real world. our infrastructure is held together loosely and it wouldn’t take much to make everything fall apart. then we would see plenty of people devouring squirrel to stay alive and strong. the problem is they won’t know how to obtain or prepare one. i suggest you all learn to survive. it is a very real possibility.

    …it was good! Agreed, not a whole lot of meat, but our first harvest as hunters, so a pretty good morning. Garlic and olive-oil, about 40 minutes at 350f.

    • lungsludge77 Says:

      i wrap mine in foil and cook it for an hour and a half at 350. it comes out wonderfully tender. i have tried pan frying but the legs are tough and snappy and it is not very appealing that way. i haven’t been successful at making it that way. roasting it is the way to go for me. throw some garlic and onion in with it and slather it with BBQ sauce

  47. Anonymous Says:

    But but but,, squirrels are fuzzy, and cute

  48. Jonathan Says:

    Yeah, the fuzz. You have to get rid of that. And the head. The tail, of course. THe skin, the guts — I mean, entrails. After that they’re just little skeletons with meat. They are cute, tho’, before all that, but once you get past that, they’re also meat.

  49. Jonathan Says:

    Went back out by myself and got three more … my first critters since the son and I took up hunting two years ago. I felt like king of the forest, I can tell you. Ready for something bigger, now that I know I could harvest squirrel if we had to eat off the land…Canada goose and deer. Otherwise it’s no work getting done for half a Saturday and a drive into the country just to stand in the woods for hours and — wait a minnit! What am I saying! That is SO worth it! And Canada goose you could probably walk up to with a piece of bread and a machete in a local park…that’s how I’d do it…yeah…

  50. Tate Says:

    It’s wasn’t until the internet that I learned eating squirrel’s to be socially taboo. I will agree that they can be tricky to find it stores, but if you get the chance try stewing them down with some wine. It gets rid of any tough or gameyness they may happen to have. Just be prepared to pick all the little bones.

    Also if your kid’s aren’t to squeamish about where meat comes from, squirrel stew can make a great forensic anatomy lesson.

  51. Tammy Says:

    I live in Kentucky, I’ve eaten squirrel all my life, along with groundhog, snapping turtle, frog legs, chicken we raised ourselves, pork we raised ourselves, beef we raised, turkey both wild and farm raised, No, it’s not a redneck thing.. it’s the natural order of things, animals were provided for our sustenance, as well as fruits, vegetables, and water. Squirrel is good tasting meat. The squirrels here, play on our roof, causing leaks. They kill our baby chicks and are pretty much a nuisance. Why not eat them? I don’t see the problem about it. My favorite way to prepare them: slow roasted on the grill with potatoes, onions, carrots and a little thin barbecue sauce. MMMMMM Goooood!

  52. Jonathan Says:

    Okay: groundhog. We get them in the yard, and over at the school. You can’t (legally) shoot ’em in my county, and you can’t (legally) trap and release them onto a nearby empty farm or patch of woods because they’re a rabies vector. I don’t like the idea of drowning them in the Havahart trap in a trash can: it’s a panicky sort of death. But eating them…hmmmmm! Plus, where it is legal to hunt, there’s no closed season except firearms deer, I think.

    wow squirrel? I can wait to know that taste of this.🙂 since I never tasted any of this recipe.

  60. Jonathan Says:

    I remember having rabbit once, and my only impression was, lots of tiny bones. Being a very lean meat — small mammal with high metabolism, I guess? — there’s not much flavor there, the way the fat in beef or pork is part of the flavor of the meat. So you spice it up a bit to give it flavor, but in terms of the squirrel muscle itself, I’m glad to know I can, and just as glad to know that for now, I don’t have to unless I want to, but if it came to it (after the oil economy collapses, I like to half-joke with my kids) , I’d eat it, but try to find some dandelion as well. Along those lines I’d like to try Canada Goose, which if you buy a license and go sit in a chilly boat on some far away lake are hard to shoot with a shotgun, but if you go to the park down the street they walk right up to you. Also I saw Andrew Zimmern pull a snapping turtle out of a PA lake and rave about the soup it was used in.

  61. Shelley's Homemade Recipes Says:

    I’ve been wondering what to do with all the squirrels in my back yard! hahaha, this recipe actually sounds good! I must try it sometime! i would imagine squirrel tastes a lot like rabbit.. they eat a lot of the same foods, live in pretty much the same environment, why the hell not? haha

    • Bear Says:

      The wild squirrel I’ve eaten is a darker meat (more lean and less marbled) than wild rabbit and I’ve given my opinion earlier about farmed squirrel; just remember the meat is very lean and will be best marinaded / cooked with additional fats. Also, keep in mind that during certain times of the year, wild game will be raising their young, so killing a female might be starving her pups.

  62. Pepper Boy Says:

    I’ve been killing the little pests for years because they live in our house, destroy our insulation the chew the wires. Honestly, if they didn’t I’d just watch them at the feeder and let them go on their merry way. But they really have destroyed our house. I use to just feed them to the crows (which usually took them off within a day).

    For 2012 I decided it was time to try one. Part of my motivation was that this was a BIG squirrel, maybe 4 lbs (turned out to be mostly fat) I brined it in salt and garlic for a day, seasoned it with chipoltle pepper, salt & pepper and roasted it like the recipe for 30 min and then 10 uncovered. It was much better than expected!. Next time I think I’m going to try the longer method wrapped in foil to see if I can get the meat to come off the bone better. The meat itself had a nice mellow flavor.

    at least a wild squirrel has a normal life and diet.

    i live in london and have just got a couple of woodland squirells from suffolk from my local farmers market which we will have for dinner this week. it will make a change from supermarket meat which is treated horrendoulsy to reach my plate in a cost effective manner. (here is a suprise for you: walmart, tesco et al , they dont like animals very much even if they do put them in nice
    packaging with pleasing colours and barcodes like a zebras bum)
    processsed/farmed meat is fed hormeone growth promoters and all sorts of sht so wake up and get over it

    if you like your eggs for breakfast or cake or biscuits or anything with eggs in read ths then say wild squirrel is a bad thing to eat. then think about the efferct youhave by making ill thought out consumer choices.

    you are the sick ones. not these people eating wild squirell

      In theory, I suppose. There’s “practicing primitive survival skills”, there’s “celebrating regional heritage food-sourcing in pursuit of authentic resource economy”, and there’s “teaching the boys responsibility and doing manly stuff with them on a Saturday”, but then there’s eating rats. By the way, Kristin; when you get that done, bring me over a plate! It sounds a little more Bourdain than Zimmern.
