August always seems to be the hottest month of the year and in 2011 it sure enough proved to be….
My favorite thing about game meat is that you can cook it in so many ways that you would cook beef, chicken and pork without truly losing the ‘wild’ flavor.
Antelope is such a tender and flavorful meat that it makes it easy to prepare with minimum ingredients and minimum cooking time. This recipe is quick, easy and full of high intensity flavors. Enjoy!
Thank you to our good friends Danny and Leslie for sharing their ‘Secret’ Parmesan Chukar recipe. What I enjoy about this recipe as well as several of the other Big Game Recipes is that they are all flexible for other substitute game birds and game meats!
Do you feel like you need to go on a diet and cut back on your calorie intake for the day. It’s simple, make your favorite meal into half the size just like these mini elk sliders. Half the size must mean half the calories, right?
We have been pretty lucky this year to have had the opportunity to get out and hunt Nevada. This year seems to have been a better year for harvesting some of our favorite upland game birds and even so without the use of a dog!
Simple, quick and flavorful peppercorn elk sirloin skewers with sweet onion and cherry tomatoes.
Ground elk burger smothered in chili verde salsa, diced mild green chilies, kidney beans, chips and cheese. Two words… “So Good”!
Try these baked elk burger enchiladas smothered in mushroom soup and sour cream. It had to be one of the quickest to disappear out of all my enchilada recipes.
For all those out there who haven’t ever tried wild game cooking – let me just say you might be missing out on some of the best meats available. If you don’t know someone who is a hunter you can always order wild game from your local butcher. Be adventurous and try it!
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!
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.
Try something different tonight and barbeque your basic taco toppings: tomatoes, onions, chilies and tortillas. It’s fun, different and best of all it tastes fantastic!
Making chili is a relaxing way to enjoy a cloudy, cold and wet weekend day. There are so many ways…
I want to be honest and let you know that when you make these Raviolis … you’ll be addicted, craving them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I know just looking at them I’m getting hungry.
Blue cheese mushroom risotto with ‘leftover’ elk meatloaf is a simple way to turn last night’s dinner into something new…
Friday night spent outdoors next to a fire and a few shallot and blue cheese elk burgers on the BBQ.
Boiling your bell peppers prior to cooking on the BBQ is what really makes this dish a success. The sweetness of the pepper and the elk meat, the carmelized onion infused by the BBQ… and then top it off with melted cheese. Wow… It’s delicious.
Friday night dinner and a movie called for a great bottle of red and some Italian elk sausage spaghetti with garlic noodles… oh, and the movie of choice – Sherlock Holmes.
Shepherd’s meat pie with Italian elk sausage includes chopped celery, carrots, onion, mushrooms, fresh tarragon, shallots, a little bacon and mashed potatoes.
