sloppy wapiti

Submitted by: WALLOWA

Introduction

If you're lucky enough to live in hunter land, ultra lean ground elk (wapiti) or venison works wonderfully well. If not... very lean ground turkey or beef works fine too. And don't be intimidated by my other odd ingredients -- I will suggest substitutions in the recipe.

Ingredients


    Break up 1/2 pound LEAN ground Elk Meat and begin to sear it in your pan on medium heat. Add 1.5 cups of marinara sauce (chunky vegetarian prego is very nice!).

    Add in a cup of finely chopped zucchini (you are after texture and nutrients here). Stir.

    Sprinkle a scan 1/4 cup of golden seedless raisins and a scatter (tbsp) of pine nuts in the mix. Keep stirring.

    Sprinkle in a tbsp of dry cous cous -- I get mine in a large jar, but you can high grade the stuff out of instant cous cous mixes too... as long as the spices aren't already mixed in. A tbsp of instant rice or orzo or pastine works nicely too -- again, we're after texture here.

    Keep stirring. (Add in your cup of water as it seems to be needed to keep things simmery. I also like to use club soda or selzer (not sweetened!) which cuts a bit of the tomatoe-y acid. But that's just me!)

    Simmer thoroughly til meet is done.

    LIGHTLY "butter" your small hamburger rolls. A tsp of smart balance each is probably plenty.



    Small Hamburger buns 8
    Smart Balance, Smart Balance Omega Plus Buttery Spread, 8 tsp (or less)

Directions

Makes 8 sloppy wapiti... at ;east/

Cut the 306 calories to about 210 by using only half buns or going very lightly with the "butter", and reducing the number of raisins by half and increasing the amount of zucchini.

This keeps well (actually wonderful on day 2!) and is complemented well by that old pioneer staple, apple slices (I like to dust them lightly with cinnamon and give them a quick blast in my old pioneer microwave -- but that's another 130 calories not indicated in the recipe. But if you make substitutions... :)

Enjoy... Mess around with it... (That's the sloppy part!") and thank your elk hunter (that's the wapiti part.)
