Bear Burger

  • Author: Miss AK

Making a bear meat burger delicious can seem tricky because the meat must be well done, but this recipe is both juicy and flavorful. 


  • 1 lb. ground bear meat 
  • 1 lime, juiced 
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground mustard powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 4 slices Pepper Jack cheese (optional or you can use whatever cheese, but we like Pepper Jack)
  • 4 burger buns 
  • Burger toppings of choice


  1. Turn your grill on and heat to medium-high, about 450F-500F. 
  2. In a bowl, combine the bear meat, lime juice, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, mustard powder, salt, and pepper. Mix everything together well with your hands or a fork so the flavors are distributed. 
  3. Then, divide the meat into 4 sections. Form each section into a patty and use your thump to make a divot in the center of each one. This helps them stay juicy. 
  4. Place the patties on the grill and grill for about 8-10 minutes per side. When you flip the burgers over, add the cheese if you’re using it. Before removing the patties from the grill, make the sure internal temperature is 165F. Bear meat needs to be cooked to well done to be safe to consume. 
  5. Assemble the cooked burgers as you like and serve!


  • Please note that bear meat needs to be cooked to an internal temperature of 165F to be safe to consume.
