More from the Freezer Holy War

Like any good holy war, a single battle won't do. No you have to go on for generations until no one can remember why they're fighting.

This week is was a mass purge of the doctrinally inconsistent meat and tomato products (as stated in the Ecumenical Council of 1432)

Our Inquisition discovered (from left to right)

Elk hamburger and Italian sausage (in the bowl), a ham bone, beef pot roast and some uncooked Elk round steaks
And

Tomato sauce, roasted tomatoes and tomato confit

The steak meat was seasoned (salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder) and browned

Tomatoes were pureed

Hamburger and sausage went to make meatballs (with egg, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder)

All the meat and the tomato went into the pot, brought to a simmer with a little red wine, salt and pepper then put in a 275 degree oven for five hours!

The flavor of the meat was totally infused into the tomatoes and the meat itself was fork tender
Served it with linguine

On a completely unrelated note, your Elk meat mention stirred a memory that when there is a big roadkill in Alaska (like a moose or something) the cops will call local charities who will come out quickly and clean it for serving in their shelters. Nothing gets wasted I guess.

There's no way I thought you could create something appealing with all that stuff. You missed your calling.

Yummy! I don't think I have ever had elk meat, but I imagine it tastes something like venison?
