Pan-Seared Elk Chops in a Spiced Marinade
We thought all of our elk was gone. One last (we think) package was found hidden in our freezer. So we wanted to get this final gathered meal "right". We found this recipe on a site we visit often. If only this recipe had been posted when we first started preparing this elk! After a simple to put together, but very complex tasting marinade, the chops or steaks are pan-seared and then finished quickly in a hot oven . We also prepared some grass fed organic beef the same way. The beef was very good, but not nearly as savoury as the elk. The rosemary is from a plant just outside of our house. We hope someone in our home gets an elk permit this coming season. Served with roasted and buttered butternut squash, a deep green salad with orange peppers and red tomatoes, with a coconut flan for dessert. We were able to share this meal with Kyle, his chihuahua Bella, and our wild-dog chihuahua Penny. A good time was had by all - really.
