I had a major surgery a year ago & gained a lot of weight. So I hired a trainer who put me on a meal plan.
One of the meats that I was allowed to eat was bison. Next to the frozen bison on the shelf we’re other animals.
This peaked my interest and after talking to a friend I decided to try elk and invite her over.
Elk meat balls.
I bought one l.5 lbs of elk and a bunch of cilantro and a bunch of tarragon.
Chopped up about 1/3 of the cilantro leaves and 1/3 of the tarragon. Split the meat in two halves. (I wanted to experiment).
In a bowl I added salt and pepper, an egg and the herbs (separately).
Just made meat balls from the two batches, 2 cm in diameter.
Put it on the side.
Then I went and started the pasta.
Caramelized Onions and Greek Yogurt Pasta
I wanted to use this caramelized onion and yogurt recipe because we usually ate it with pieces of steak and goes well with simple meat.
This recipe is really easy. Just make some thick pasta, and mix it with greek yogurt, as much caramelized onions you can make, and a grated hard cheese of your choice.
So simple and yum! We got this recipe from
This recipe and combination was a success! Both my friend and I, and our two 11-year-old sons enjoyed it.
The Elk was more gamey and robust than usual ground meat, although I found I tasted more tarragon than the meat, although my friend and the kids couldn’t taste the tarragon at all. I liked both the tarragon and cilantro equally, and so did everyone else.
