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.
What’s for dinner? Why not something simple like olive elk meatloaf with horseradish mashed potatoes and brown gravy? Trust me… it’s tasty and the leftovers the next day are even better!
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.
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.
It’s all about Portion Control these days, so I cooked up some Mini Elk Calzones with ground elk, mushrooms, oregano, ricotta cheese and creamy Alfredo sauce.
Rich and delicious crustless quiche that includes elk italian sausage, mushrooms, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese and whole cherry tomatoes.
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.
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!
Flaky pastry surrounding the flavored elk with onions and tomato’s infused with spicy cumin and chipotle chili seasonings… and then topped with creamy and fresh guacamole. Can you say YUM?
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.
There’s no substitute for a great juicy mouth watering hamburger… well, unless it’s an Elk burger. With just about 80 packages of Elk Burger shoved into three freezers – we have to be a little more creative with our recipes.
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.
Dry rubbed Elk Sirloin with Pepper Bacon is an easy recipe to throw together when you’re looking at preparing either a great meal or a quick appetizer for guests. We make this recipe quite often using really whatever we have in the freezer… It tastes great with Venison, Goose, Sage Hen and Duck.
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.
