Native Dishes Served at Thanksgiving
Some recipes for an Alaska Thanksgiving:
Take 2 lbs. caribou hindquarter, sliced thin.
Mix meat with 2 cups favorite teriyaki sauce and 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce.
Marinate overnight, or for at least 90 minutes in the refrigerator.
In frying pan, heat 1/4 cup of olive oil over medium heat.
Add meat and fry; medium well takes about 10 minutes. Set teriyaki sauce aside.
Just before meat is done, turn down heat and add teriyaki sauce, stirring a few minutes as it thickens.
May be served over potatoes or rice.
