Instructions Checklist

  • Stir together the minced garlic, soy sauce, and honey together in a small saucepan. Stir in garlic powder, onion powder, and chili powder. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and gently simmer for 15 minutes, then set aside.

  • While the sauce is simmering, roll the ground moose into meatballs in 2 tablespoon portions. Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the meatballs in batches until well browned, and cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes; drain well.

  • Place the drained meatballs into a baking dish. Pour on the sauce, and stir until well coated. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes so the meatballs absorb some of the sauce.

I hate giving such a low rating.. but the "sauce" was a paste. Before I even heated it up it was already thick and pasty.. How is this working for anyone? Read More

I received my first ground moose from my sister in AK. I was worried we wouldn't like it. I picked this recipe to prepare it not knowing what else to do with moose meat. My whole family loved it! I did add a raw egg and about 1/3 c. bread crumbs to the moose meat to keep in from coming apart while making meatballs. Excellent recipe and I will make again even if I have to use ground beef. (p.s. for those who do not have moose it tasted really similar to bison/buffalo. I think that would be a easy to access alternative) Read More

Moose is impossible to get unless you know someone who hunts. If anyone knows of a game farm that raises moose meat for commercial sale please let us know! Had to substitute ground elk instead. Unfortunately my sauce turned out far too thick to pour evenly over the meatballs. Very tasty though! Read More

Sauce was quite dry. Balls didnt hold together. Seemed like there was a base missing to the sauce. Read More

i really liked this it was something different and really good. I never added the garlic powder or onion powder but I did cut up a small amount of onion to replace the onion powder and I really enjoyed it. Read More

It was OK. The honey-garlic flavor didn't flavorful the moose meat enough and it ended up tasting too gamey. Read More

Delicious! I didn't read the recipe all the way through and just mixed all the ingredients into the meat rather than making the sauce first but they turned out amazing. I posted a picture - we served it over broccoli slaw sauteed in garlic and basil Read More

Giving the recipie a 4/5 only because I found when i added the chili powder to my sauce it became very gritty. I didn't like the texture too much but the taste was still good. I found my batch a little dry after the oven so depending on how you like the meat... Keep an eye on it while in the oven... Might only put them in for 7-10 mins to bake insteAd of the 20 suggested. I would definitely make again! Read More
