No moose in your freezer?! Don't worry!
Living in the wilds of North Idaho, we have opportunity for wild game that many others only dream of. Moose is one such treat that leaves the family content and hoping for leftovers... though there seldom are!
For those who cannot acquire moose meat, deer and elk are great stand-ins... And for those hitting up the local grocery store - A Spiced Cranberry Pork Roast will be a family-pleaser, for sure!
I used a crock pot for this recipe, as it is a quick "fix-it-and-leave-it-alone" meal! One could also use a dutch oven and cook at 350F in a regular oven as well. (Use meat thermometer, according to directions.)
For THMs, this base meal (moose, venison or elk) with a green salad or spaghetti squash is FP, if you stick to 3 oz of meat and only 1 tsp added fat to your meal. If you eat more meat or sub with a pork roast, this meal will be an S. Either way, it is really delicious! (As you can see, I went with BUTTER!)
Precision-run households may find my title, "RunAmok Mama" to feel a tad alarming, so I'd like to offer a quick assurance that my life is more an exercise of controlled chaos than sheer pandemonium!
