"A modern version of the staple meat of the Inupiaq Eskimo of the North Slope of Alaska, will also work with most game meats (such as moose). If possible, add a few caribou bones at the beginning to enhance the flavor."

I am proud to see this recipe from my heritage, my mom was born in Noorvik, Alaska.
This is delicious soup, but I did have to make some modifications. The recipe, as written, really doesn't call for enough liquid to cook the rice. I both added liquid AND decreased the rice to one cup. I still needed to add more water before serving as it was no longer really soup. I also added several beef boullion cubes for more depth of flavor. My stewed tomatoes were very large chunks, so I chopped them into small pieces. I was fresh out of caribou, so I used white-tailed deer venison (plentiful in my area). Thanks for a tasty recipe.
