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. 😂 The marinade is key to perfectly tender elk meat, as this was an old bull and his meat was a bit on the tough side.
