Elk & Mushroom Meatballs 

I swear my husband and son could live off of mushrooms and onions!  There have been times where I have tested them and served them dishes with mushrooms and onions for 2 days straight and they were as happy as can be !  I try to expose the kids to different meats, fruits and vegetables as possible.  So bringing home Elk was a nice treat! I hope you enjoy these as much as we did! 

1 pound ground elk 

1 package dried mushrooms (Trader Joes) 

1 onion, diced & caramelized at least 30 minutes 

4 garlic cloves, minced 

1 tablespoon seasoning salt 

1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 

1 egg

1/2 cup chicken or beef stock 

  • Caramelize onions with 4-6 tablespoons of oil for at least 30 minutes.  
  • Add the dried mushrooms, garlic, seasoning salt, pepper, cumin and garlic into food processor and pulse 4-5 times.  
  • Add the elk, caramelized onions, and egg.  Pulse until well incorporated. 
  • I used a small cookie scooper to have the same size meatballs. 
  • I heat the same pan I caramelized the onions in and added just a little more oil. 
  • Brown the meatballs on all sides.
  • Add the stock and strap the bottom of pan to get all the goodies. 
  • Serve alone with salad or over some roasted cauliflower.
