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)


    I wish I can give it two ratings, one for directions and the other for taste. The directions are VERY POORLY written, I followed it to the "t" and ended up with a rice "glop." And way too much rice. The taste of the "glop" that supposed to be a soup was good. Kind of remind me of what I had at home in the past. I DIDN'T LIKE THE DIRECTIONS!!!  -  19 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
