    Hello Miss Georgia,

    I just tried this recipe and it’s very very good. I did put a topping of ketchup, dry mustard and brown sugar about 15 min. before it was done and I substituted fallow deer for bison but this would be awesome with any red game meat.

    Would it not be better to add the marsala to the beaten egg? I have always found that when adding a strong flavored element to something like a ground meat, it incorporates much more easliy and thoroughly when mixed with another liquid. Otherwise, one may have “pockets” of intense flavor where the protein has absorbed much of the product.

    If there is a rationale for adding at the end that I am unaware of, I would love to know. I am always interested in making a recipe a little bit better on each attempt.

      You could do it either way, I’ve always added it directly to the meat since it all needs to be so well mixed and it has always been uniform in flavor. But try it the other way!
