This recipe originally called for beef, but I started using elk, and no one knows the difference, not even my kids, and they are very picky eaters! I serve this over hot cooked rice or wide egg noodles.

  • Pour the remaining tablespoon of oil into the skillet, and stir in bell pepper and onion. Cook and stir until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes, then add the beef broth, soy sauce, tomatoes, mushrooms, and corn. Bring to a boil. Dissolve cornstarch in water, and stir into boiling vegetables; stir until thickened, about 30 seconds. Stir in the browned elk until heated through, then serve.

Thank you for this recipe! My husband brought home some elk steak and wanted me to cook him something delish with it. This recipe was it! He LOVED it. I followed it exactly and served it over some cilantro lime rice I made. He also wants me to cook it again sometime and use beef. Read More

This may reflect the talent of the chef;) but we weren't so keen on this one. Threw in the veggies I had on hand... it just sort of all went wrong... I'll spare you the details! Read More

Wow! This is so easy and delicious. I followed the recipe almost exactly except: I used 3 tablespoons of cornstarch as we like a thick stir fry 3 tablespoons of soy sauce for more flavor and substituted vegetable broth for the beef broth. I also sauteed the mushrooms with the green peppers and onions. I assume that they were added later in the recipe as they were already prepared or canned. We served this over rice and it was so tasty! Thanks KACharles for a great recipe. Read More

Of the veggies all I had was canned corn. I thought the extra cornstarcy-sauciness was weird. But my husband seemed to really like it. Read More

Just made this and it was super yummy! We just used veggies we had on hand which were peas carrots onion broccoli water chestnuts and bell peppers. We also used water and beef bouillon for the broth. We followed the recipe pretty exactly from there. It was one of the best stir fry dishes I've ever tasted at home!! I would definitely recommend it! Read More

Soooo good!! My husband didn t want me to use our elk steak so I used the rump roast instead and doubled the other ingredients. I slow cooked the rump roast overnight first in some beef broth and then made this recipe with it the next day. Super healthy and delicious! A big hit. Read More
