Italian Venison Sausage Soup

Still sticking with lighter dishes to lose a few pounds, so carbs are at a minimum. I love cooking with game meat. Venison especially is really lean and delicious. It wasn’t gamey and went perfectly in this soup. Plus, it comes together so quick that it makes a great weeknight dinner. It’s packed with flavorContinue reading “Italian Venison Sausage Soup”

Crispy Grilled Elk Tacos

These delicious little tacos really hit the spot! I normally double up my tortillas, but they held up brilliantly when frying and didn’t need any extra structural support.

Raspberry Glazed Smoked Elk Steaks

Unfortunately the elk was an old bull, so the meat was tough. I had to marinate it for 7 hours in a high acid mixture to break up the tough muscle fibers. It was so worth it and made for an excellent binder for the seasoning rub! Raspberry Glazed Elk Steaks Marinade 1/2 cup DijonContinue reading “Raspberry Glazed Smoked Elk Steaks”
