For our first meal I used a recipe from Nevada Foodies. So far this is the best source for game recipes that I have found. We cooked the Easy Elk Backstrap Recipe. The consensus was that it was delicious, but only cooking it for five minutes on each side like suggested left us with some really raw meat in the center. We are blaming ourselves for making the cuts too thick, but regardless we ended up throwing them back in the pan for a couple extra minutes. The final product was awesome. Super tender and not at all “gamey”. The recipe was true to its name. It was easy and the spice rub was so good that Cory didn’t even use ketchup. This is a notable action for him. We will definitely be repeating this one in the future.
All recipes can be found on my Pinterest board as well.
