First time trying Elk & was extremely satisfied
I've decided to try some different meats this year & wanted to try some Elk after having heard great things about it. I ordered two steaks & decided I would marinade each differently to see if there was any gaminess & which was all around better. One was seasoned, then put into a brown sugar & whiskey glaze for 8 hours, while the other was seasoned with sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, garlic powder, & a tiny splash of red wine. Both were cooked over a charcoal & mesquite wood fire to medium rare.
They were genuinely some of the most tender & tastey steaks I've ever eaten. In a lot of ways they tasted extremely close to beef which was surprising. I had grilled them alongside a beef ribeye & tried them side-by-side, they really did remind me of beef, just slightly different. Also, I found that the steak marinated with the splash of wine tasted better than the one in brown sugar & whiskey, in case anyone was curious.
I would absolutely recommend!
