Sweet-and-Sour Elk

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
This recipe is very good. This is the first review I've written and I've tried lots of recipes here. I have to tell you that my husband (who thinks food is for sustenance only) actually said that this dinner was "really good!" more than once. I love sweet-sour anything, but dh doesn't care for pineapple. I love the fact that I get the sweet-sour flavor with the apricot jam instead of pineapple. Based on my sweet/sour thing, I made a few changes: I topped the elk (or as far as that goes any meat would work here),but I used elk, with 2 cloves of garlic (minced or smashed), 1 onion (small dice), 1 green pepper,(small dice). I also added a couple of Tablespoons of honey and 1/4 c. soy sauce to the sauce recipe. I served this over jasmine rice. I don't usually cook with jams or dressings, but this was worth getting these to make this. I will be making this again! Thanks! P.S. I grew up on wild game and some years when we were raising our children things were so tight that beef could not fit in the budget, so venison was on the menu instead. I use game, (venison, elk, bear, buffalo etc. just as I would use beef in any recipe, and you can too!

Green Bean and Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2006
I have made this potato salad before, years ago, but since my family doesn't care for potato salad without mayo, I added some to this recipe and let it sit over nite. YUM Both tangy and a little creamy, and you control the creamy!
