1/1 Photo of Elk Steaks with Green Peppercorn Sauce
Jim Weller's Note:
Elk is perhaps the finest of all the venison meats. It is very fine grained and mild flavoured, almost like beef. Like all wild venison, it is very lean so it benefits from larding, barding and marinading. With that in mind, you can treat it like beef. Steaks are best grilled, cooked rare or at most medium rare. Well done meat will be tough due to the lack of fat.
