Caribou soup

    1 hour

    This hearty soup will work with most game - venison, wild boar, etc. If possible, add a few bones at the beginning to enhance the flavour.

    I am proud to see this recipe from my heritage, my mom was born in Noorvik, Alaska.  -  25 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is delicious soup, but I did have to make some modifications. The recipe, as written, really doesn't call for enough liquid to cook the rice. I both added liquid AND decreased the rice to one cup. I still needed to add more water before serving as it was no longer really soup. I also added several beef boullion cubes for more depth of flavor. My stewed tomatoes were very large chunks, so I chopped them into small pieces. I was fresh out of caribou, so I used white-tailed deer venison (plentiful in my area). Thanks for a tasty recipe.  -  01 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is the end for AllRecipes. They used to be my favorite spot for recipes but the ad content has gone from annoying to paralyzing. It freezes like crazy on my ipad and I"m guessing it's all that added ad code. Site is basically non-functional unless you're on a desktop and even then you might suffer a seizure from trying to read a recipes with 8 ads flashing all over your screen.  -  14 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
