Grilled Elk Meat Recipes

One of the most popular ways to cook elk is on a grill. Since elk is a lean meat, it cooks quicker on the grill than many other meats. The main thing to remember when grilling elk, is to cook it at a lower temperature for a shorter amount of time. For additional flavor, you may marinate and season the meat before cooking. The opportunities are endless! 

  1. Italian-Seasoned Elk Steaks
  2. Lemon Garlic Elk Steaks
  3. Grilled Elk with Chanterelle Sauce
  4. Whiskey-Grilled Steaks

Pan-Seared Elk Recipes

Pan-searing your elk is probably the easiest way to prepare a meal. But pan-searing your elk meat also tends to remove most of the moisture. To combat dry meat, pair your elk with a zesty sauce. Check out the following recipes to see how it’s done.

  1. Elk Backstrap
  2. Pan-Fried Venison Steak
  3. Cast Iron Seared Elk Steak
  4. Pan-Seared Elk Steak
