  1. Whisk canola oil, onion, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, garlic powder, and pepper in a bowl until marinade is well mixed. Place elk steak in a large resealable plastic bag and pour marinade over meat. Coat meat with marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Drain elk steak and discard marinade.
  3. 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).

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...

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. RE...

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

only marinated for 45 min. and it was so freaking good, don't want to kill the taste of the elk. Added minced jalapeño.
