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

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground moose meat
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into strips
  • Hot cooked wide egg noodles

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine meat, egg, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, salt, pepper and onion. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls. In a large skillet, brown meatballs in oil. Cover and cook over low heat until the meatballs are done, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a saucepan, stir vinegar and remaining cornstarch until smooth. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Set pineapple aside. Add enough water to juice to equal 1-1/2 cups stir into vinegar mixture. Add sugar and soy sauce; cook and stir over medium heat until thickened. Add the meatballs, pineapple and green pepper; cook until heated through and the green pepper is tender. Serve over noodles.
<B>Editor's Note:</B> If moose meat isn't available in your area, ground beef can be substituted.
