  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Drain elk steak and discard marinade.

  • Cook steaks on the preheated grill until they are beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the center, 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).

Incredible! Marinated for 24 hours and it grilled perfect following the directions/temps. Elk usually sticks to the grill but this marinade made it flip easily. Will use this recipe every time on elk steaks! Read More

I made slight changes based on my hubby's dislike of onions and he said it was the best elk he'd ever eaten. I swapped minced garlic for the minced onion but to still get a little of the onion flavor swapped onion powder for the garlic powder. Used garlic pepper blend in placed of the black pepper. The first time I made this it was just enough for 5 palm-sized pieces of backstrap - perfect. I doubled it the next time for 1.5 lbs of leg steaks - enough steak to comfortably fill a quart-zize zip bag and I found that I probably didn't need to do so. I don't think you need to increase the marinade if you're using a baggie but definitely would if marinating in a bowl or similar container. Read More

Excellent marinade. I had to quadruple this however as it makes a tiny amount. I couldn't figure out if it was supposed to absorb completely but that's not how I'm used to marinating meat so I made more. Hubs asked me to add liquid smoke so I did and I added minced garlic as well. Didn't have elk just used hubs' family farmed beef steaks. Everyone loved it. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I have used this recipe several times for elk steak and the results are amazing. I have used dehydrated onions mostly (great time and tear saver) and am using coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. I recently marinated a small elk roast in this recipe and then roasted it for 40 minutes (which may have been 5 minutes too many). The roast came out flavorful tender and moist. I usually only marinate for a couple hours unless its really gamey meat. Read More

First time I've made elk! Thanks Brother Don! I quadrupled the recipe to cover 3 large steaks with enough marinade. Put all in a ziploc and let marinate for 2 1/2 days. Turned a few times. REEEEEALLY delicious. Nicely Flavored what I think is pretty bland meat (no fat). Highly recommend.:) Read More

Was awesome marinate overnight if possible and grill high so you sear it well and it's still rare inside. Superb! Read More
