Instructions

  • In a small bowl. combine the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Rub the elk steaks with the seasoning blend.

  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the chicken broth. Stir the broth until it begins to simmer, about 4-5 minutes. Whisk in the Dijon mustard and remaining butter.
  • Slice the elk steaks and serve with the Dijon mustard pan sauce.

Notes

I like to serve these tender elk steaks with a combination of roasted vegetables such as sliced beets, cubed potatoes, onions, mushrooms, 2 cloves of garlic and a sprig of rosemary. Toss the vegetables with a few tablespoons of olive oil and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add the vegetables to a non stick baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes at 425 degrees.
