Canned moose (elk?) meat

annaesm | Dec 18, 201607:21 AM    

My mother brought a 400-gram can of moose meat from Finland. The drawing looks like a moose, at any rate. The title is "Hirvenlihaa," which google translates as Venison. The main ingredients are listed as Elkmeat 70% and pork meat 17%.

I have no idea what to do with it. I'd like to do something that will highlight the flavor (which I assume is distinct). On the label, there is a picture of some kind of stew with the meat chunks, carrots, broccoli, peas, and either potatoes or celery, topped with a white cream and dill. Should I just try to put those things together? Something else?
