Blue cheese mushroom risotto with ‘leftover’ elk meatloaf is a simple way to turn last night’s dinner into something new…
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.
Shepherd’s meat pie with Italian elk sausage includes chopped celery, carrots, onion, mushrooms, fresh tarragon, shallots, a little bacon and mashed potatoes.
The perfect appetizer for impressing your dinner guests has to be Mushrooms stuffed with ground elk, barbequed sweet onion and smoked mozzarella cheese hot out of the oven.
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.
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.
Mini-Elk Meatball Strogonoff
Looking for a delicious meal that really does take less than 35 minutes to prepare… then you can’t beat a good Stroganoff meal. I enjoy making my stroganoff’s a little different than most. I keep the sauce off the noodles and simply add to the top of the dish.
With fall hunting upon us, we tend to have a lot of waterfowl filling up the refrigerator. The best time to cook anything is right away when it’s fresh. So a recipe that we love and our friends love is easy to cook and will leave you with zero leftovers and extra room in the freezer.
Cold weather with snow on the ground tends to make me want to cook somthing up that’s hearty and warm. Meals like this also work best when it’s a Saturday or Sunday and time is not so rushed for getting dinner on the table.
Thanks goes out to Sandee for this White Cheddar Cheese Potato Gratin recipe. I made it Friday night and used the leftovers in another Elk Meat Pie. It was amazing!
