    Perhaps this is the old Zaar thread you remember (from 2009): Recipes from Trois Rivieres area of Quebec
    I did find the following recipes online:

    Ragout de Pattes et Boulettes (Pork Hock Stew and Meatballs)

    Ragoût de Boulettes (Meat Ball Stew)

    1 lb fresh lean pork
    1/2 lb minced beef
    1/4 lb ground veal or beef
    1 small onion minced
    2 tbsp parsley
    1/4 tsp ginger
    2 cinnamon sticks
    3 bay leaves
    6 whole cloves
    1/4 tsp dry mustard
    1 egg, slightly beaten
    1/2 cup milk
    salt and pepper
    3 tbsp fat (or Crisco oil)
    3 cups water (light broth or broth form pork hocks)
    4 tbsp browned flour
    1/2 cup water

    1. Put through the meat chopper 3 times, the fresh pork, minced beef and veal. Add the onion, parsley, ginger, and dry mustard. Add the beaten egg. Salt and pepper, make into balls. Flour them (with white flour).

    2. Fry the meat balls in a fat of your choice. Pour 3 cups of water (broth) over the meat balls. Add bay leaves, cinnamon stick and cloves. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove bay leaves, cinnamon sticks and cloves.

    3. Shake together in a jar the flour and 1/2 cup water. Pour into the broth and continue cooking, stirring until it thickens to a good consistency.

    There are only three I could locate, none of them what you want. I love her tangy pastry dough! I have found recipes from Canadian Living to be very good, maybe this will help, eh? icon_wink.gif
    Or the Canada Rail version: Ragout De Boulettes Canadian Meatballs.
    Have you posted in the Canadian forum?
