This is an American Indian recipe, that I have been making for several years. its earthy goodness makes its perfect at Thanksgiving and Halloween feast. but know that you can make it for any meal. The original calls for venison but if you cant get any, Ground sirloin is a great substitute. Also you can add all kind of goodies if you want like golden raisins or chopped up nuts,or apples. Try it every way its worth the time involved and ooh so good!
