Cooking Elk Meat

Since elk meat is lower in fat that other meats it reaches your desired doneness quicker than other meats. Studies at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research Station in Lacombe, Alberta, have shown that elk is generally more tender than beef.

When Wapiti Ways elk meat is cooked right you will end up with a meat that is rich and robust with a slightly sweet taste, high in protein, iron and B vitamins, low in fat and cholesterol.

Elk Steaks

Thaw thoroughly in the bottom of your refrigerator. Prepare a DRY rub of your choice and thoroughly rub into thawed steaks. Set temperature of cooking implement at MEDIUM (roughly 300 degrees). Sear each side of steak for one minute. Turn over, and cook for an additional 4 to 6 minutes. Degree of doneness should be RARE to MEDIUM RARE.

Elk Roasts

Thaw thoroughly in the bottom of your refrigerator. (Hint: One inch of frozen meat takes approximately 5 hours to thaw in the bottom of a refrigerator). Set temperature of cooking implement at 350 degrees (medium). Use a dry rub on the roast. If using a roasting pan, add a small amount of water, then cook for 1 and 1/4 hours. At this time, insert a meat thermometer into the center of the elk roast. When the thermometer temperature reads 140 degrees, the roast is ready. If not, keep cooking and testing temperature at 10 minute intervals until done. Remove roast from oven. Let rest for 15 minutes on the counter, then carve and enjoy.

Elk Shanks

Crockpot (Slow Cooker) Method: Place shanks in a crockpot with 1 1/2 cups of water, seasonings and a large mixture of your favorite vegetables. For a two setting crockpot, use the high setting for 7 1/2 to 8 hours or until meat comes away easily from the bone. For a three setting crockpot, use the Medium setting for the same amount of time. (Hint: You may wish to judge when to add vegetables as the softer vegetables will take considerably less time than root vegetables like potatoes, carrots and celery.)
