After years of cooking big game, upland game and waterfowl, I found success in crafting recipes in the kitchen that use simple steps and everyday ingredients. I hope that you will use my recipes to experiment, adapt, change and inspire others to find respect and passion for any harvests brought home to the table. At the end of everyday there’s something special about enjoying your own home cooked meal and reminiscing with family and friends. I hope you enjoy this site ~Kristy Learn More

Stuffed Bell Peppers with Ground Elk

The best cuts of meat deserve the most attention to detail; however, that doesn’t mean that you need to use the most expensive ingredients. Simple things like sage leaves, creamy Alfredo sauce, yes from a jar… mushrooms and onions make a fine dining meal in minutes.

Elk Sirloin Tacos

I have too many ingredients left in the refrigerator that just scream to me to keep making tacos with different ingredients. The dry rub is essentially the same, but what makes these tacos different each time is what you put on them. You just can’t make this taste bad!

Elk Meat Recipe

Herb Crusted Elk Steaks with Marsala Mushrooms

The key to the success of this dish is to never ever overcook your elk steaks. That… and of course, searing the meat directly in the pan that the bacon, mushrooms and marsala wine just came from. The bacon grease that seasons the pan will leave an amazingly flavorful outer crust on each piece of meat that will leave you wanting more.
