So the question is which is better: Fried or Baked? My answer would have to be that they are both amazing but you just can’t beat anything that’s fried. PERIOD!
I found this amazing recipe for Lasagna using diced chili’s to spice things up a bit… so I thought why not take the offbeat approach to a classic dish and seriously take it to the next level.
With just a few pieces of elk meat leftover from an earlier recipe, I cooked up this amazing, flavorful and completely 100% low fat, Elk backstrap panini with smoked gouda, bacon and tomato.

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.
Figuring out ways to cook tough cuts of meat can be difficult at times, but braising your meat for several hours creates a savory and rich outcome direct to your dinner plate.
