Elk Burgers: Everything You Need to Know

While elk burger recipes are quick and easy, there are some things you should know before firing up the grill. As previously mentioned, elk is a lean meat with significantly less fat than beef. If you’re used to cooking beef burgers, prepare for your elk burgers to cook faster. That said, the lack of fat means burning it is much more difficult. You’ll also want to use less seasoning than you would typically use for a beef burger because elk has more flavor; elk meat is delicious, so keep it simple.
