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.
