Game Meat Recipes for the 'Big Game'

Original: took a spin off the Super Bowl's trademark "The Big Game" and suggested game meats to eat while you root on your team. The recipes bring traditional Native foods like elk, venison and boar to the forefront. Feel free to substitute bison.

Turn your regular pork and beef meatballs into a leaner version—elk meatballs with bourbon barbecue sauce. Take some inspiration from south of the border to create Chow's wild boar carnitas tacos with jicama-mango salsa. And take an ordinary sandwich to the next level: Italian venison-sausage sandwiches with peppers and onions.
