Bacon-Wrapped Grilled Elk Backstrap

Rating: Unrated
Here's a delicious way to prepare elk: seasoned pieces of backstrap are wrapped in bacon, and grilled. This tasty meal is ready in under half an hour! I like to sprinkle the skewers with more Worcestershire sauce halfway through cooking.

Onion Elk Roast Stroganoff

Rating: Unrated
I'm always looking for good ways to empty the freezer of the wild game that hubby brings home. This is easy and can cook all day in the crock pot. Serve it over egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or rice.

Mom's Shredded Elk Sandwiches

Rating: Unrated
Reminiscent of sloppy joes, this recipe can be used with elk or venison - it takes away that gamey taste!

Elk Chili

Rating: Unrated
A simple but tasty chili recipe using ground elk meat as the base. Best served with Mexican style cornbread. Beef may also be substituted for elk.

Elk Shepherd's Pie

This a savory dish filled with ground elk, an array of vegetables, and delicious mashed potatoes.

Cabbage Veggie Cream Soup

Rating: Unrated
Talk about great flavor! This soup is unique and yummy- definitely put in the ingredients that sound bizarre like vinegar and Tabasco®. Tons of compliments await! Serve with a dollop of sour cream on top.

Peppered Elk Skillet

Rating: Unrated
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.

Southwest Elk Stew

This is my take on pozole. I fell in love with traditional pozole a few years ago when a friend from New Mexico made the dish. Although I love the traditional dish, in general I'm not a huge fan of pork or hominy, thus the creation of this recipe.

Elk Steak and Mashed Potatoes

Meal enough for a family of 4 or cut one in half to make it 5. Tasteful and filling. You may add any vegetable you want though I will only give the recipe for the mashed potatoes and elk steak.
