Moose Meatballs

Our family has found these meatballs in tangy sauce a great use for moose. I was glad to find a good recipe that incorporates ground moose meat, since we eat a lot of moose steaks and I like to use it differently for a change. -Janis Plourde, Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario

    It's a delicious and flavorful way to use ground moose meat. This recipe is good served over rice or noodles. I would definitely make it again.

    Our family has been making this recipe since it appeared in the magazine 1st many years ago. It is EXCELLENT and simple.We substitute ground white meat turkey for the moose. The flavor is still awesome & the recipe is healthy.
