As you probably have guessed, Tiger Meat is not made with actual tigers. Instead, it's generally made with raw beef--though I make mine with good quality, fresh venison sirloin. Tiger meat is really popular in the Dakotas as a winter snack, especially in ice shacks, for New Year's Eve and the Super Bowl. Recipes are protected in communities, and a popular one can make or break a meat locker. According to my friend Chris Hull, who shared his family's recipe below, lockers in Eureka and Gettysburg, S.D., get long lines of folks when the word gets out that they have a batch coming out onto the shelves. Kessler's Grocery store in Aberdeen, S.D., has a very popular one as well.
