How to Cook Elk Meat

Elk meat is lean, flavourful and low in fat. Care taken to not over cook the meat will prevent the meat from drying out and make it tender and flavourful.

Using your favourite slow cooker recipe for less tender cuts will result in a delicious meat that you can cut with a fork.

When barbequing or pan frying elk meat, sear the meat on high heat to seal in the juices, then continue cooking on lower heat to the desired finish. Plan for faster cooking times compared to other red meats.

Another tip is to massage the meat with either olive oil or canola oil, mixed with herbs and spices of your choice, before cooking. This creates a seal over the meat which helps keep moisture in.
