“Whadaya think, buddy? Are we ready for this?”

I mentioned being excited about getting meat in the Crockpot right, and it was not just because I have all that frozen pork to deal with and I’m tired of eating shoe leather. There was also…

This.


Elk sirloin. A gift from Ian’s latest Field to Table trip.

I don’t remember the last time I had steak. I’ve never had elk. I was extremely anxious not to ruin it through ineptitude, so that frozen hunk of meat became one of those gifts too nice to use. It’s been in the freezer two months.

But now, with a couple of successful pork slow-cooks behind me, I’m going to give it a shot. Yum. I hope.

  1. Should be good. I’ve had elk; good stuff. Treat it like venison. In the end, it depends on what it was grazing on, but I’ve never had bad elk.

    But take my opinion with a large grain of salt. I’ve also eaten raccoon and possum, and found those acceptable (I had an uncle that would hunt ’bout anything).

    Elk is delicious and I personally would be grilling that hunk of meat. I do like pot roast though.
