    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.

      very nice sauce for venison, I would cut the balsamic in half though, as the brand I used was pretty sweet. It would be just as good without the peppercorns if you are out. Thanks for posting so long ago! This will definitely be a keeper as we eat a lot of venison.

      I thought this was pretty tasty. When I tasted the sauce as it was cooking, I was worried that it would overwhelm the elk, but actually the flavors worked really well and did not overpower the delicate meat. Instead of green peppercorns I used a mix of szechuan and black. I added some sugar to taste to balance out the wine and vinegar and a pat of butter at the very end.

      This recipe got RAVES from our guests! I used what remained of the FABULOUS peppercorn sauce on steaks the next day. NOTE: The onions in the sauce require a lot more time to become translucent and reduction also takes longer.
