Beaver meat is very mild and taste very similar to beef. It cooks very tender and falls apart like a good beef roast. Personally if you can get past the fact you are eating a rodent it is very darn good. Enjoy! And as always no beans and no flour so perfectly great to enjoy for Primal or Paleo folks.
