  • has anyone eaten elk??

    I can't believe it myself, but I thought since I live here in Norway and am getting all primal and all I would try it... I have a guilty conscience kind of now... HOWEVER... I did get elk meat which is raised organically for eating... and it was quite yummy!!!!! I had some which was kind of like dried jerky or something, and a little piece of "elk medallions"- the best part of the elk meat (I do not know any meat lingo haha!) and it was really good! Must be primal meat I believe
    anyone kow how to prepare it?

      Hi - another Norwegian here and yep, I've had elk. It is gooood. What do you mean "raised organically"? Elk in Norway is living free in the nature and have a wonderful life and one awful day.

      Elk can be prepared like most meat, but as it tends to be leaner than CW raised domesticated animals they need a little special care to not come out too dry.

        Yup. Quite common here in Idaho, where elk hunting makes a significant contribution to our economy. Why would you feel guilty about it?

          One awful minute, more like. Assuming they even notice. It certainly beats growing up miserable in a feedlot somewhere, I'd bet!

            Elk = yummy, especially the back strap.
            Even had some elk sausage which was terrific too.

              Yes! I was veg for 15 years but sometime during that 15 years, one of my best friends sister's boyfriends (lol), shot an elk in AK or Canada and brought some back to MI.

              I knew it was something very special at that time and did eat it.

              I can still 'taste' it. Delicious.

                    Had some hunted elk sausage. It was delicious but since it was quite spicy, it could have been any good meat.

                      Yeah I really like elk. I can't seem to find a cheap source but once a week I'll have some from the "health food" store. Great source of b vitamins.

                        I eat elk regularly, a couple of times per week at least. We actually have an elk on the way from a local rancher, should be here by the end of the month. We are sharing it with a couple of friends, so I expect we will end up with about half the animal in the end. I've asked that we get the bones and such too.

                        It's very healthy meat. If you look at the nutritional profiles, I think it's one of the best choices out there. I also like that it's a native species to my region, so it's ecologically appropriate, much more so than cattle. We're eating mostly bison and elk for red meat in our house now.

                          My freezer is full of Elk and deer every yr 5 hunters in our family ... can be cooked anyway you cook beef,it is very lean.

                          BBQ+ olive oil and spices med. rare is the best,

                          if you get a tougher cut you can grind it add a couple of eggs spices make the best burger or meatloaf

                          backstrap(medalions) on low fry in butter when med. rare add some cream and couple Tbls sour cream let it bubble on low for
                          about 5 min's to thicken

                          fried with bacon is great

                          taco meat for salad is awesome
                          stew meat

                          slice it really thin for stir fry add veggies


                          just remember to add fat and dont over cook it will be great how ever u use it... good luck

                            We serve "elk" medallions in the restaurant. Being in the US, it's actually some farm-raised product from New Zealand. Charlotta: Bob makes a sauce with port wine & shallots to serve with. It's one of our most popular dishes. Don't over cook those medallions - they will dry out. The earlier suggestion of grilling with butter is a very good idea. (the chefs I work with do that) You can grill the piece with butter, salt & pepper. Turn it to make the pretty grill marks & then slice it into medallions. Sauteed mushrooms always go nicely too

                              I'm in Oslo, or 50 km outside of Oslo to be exact.

                              I would have tried a local butcher of some sort, otherwise Coop, Rema, Rimi, ICA and Meny have a lot of decent stuff.
