Two Simple Tips For Cooking Elk Meat

  1. Don't overcook it! Elk is a naturally lean meat and therefore cooks more quickly than other meats you may be used to, namely beef.
  2. Try cooking elk in a slow cooker, or "crock pot." Because it is low in fat, elk meat works well with slow and moist methods of cooking.

Elk meat is as versatile as beef, and can be substituted for beef in most recipes with few if any changes. However, when cooking, it is important to keep in mind that elk is naturally low in fat and will therefore probably cook faster than beef. Any overcooked meat, including elk, can become tough and lose its good flavor.

Is Elk Meat Venison?

Sometimes you will hear elk meat referred to as "venison," a word some people reserve just for deer meat, not elk meat. So, is elk meat the same thing as venison? Well, yes and no. For a lot of people the word "venison" refers strictly to deer meat, and although elk are related to deer they are nonetheless a distinctly different species. For other people, though, the word "venison" is a broader term that means not only deer meat, but also the meat of elk.

Save The Elk Meat For Later

If you find some elk meat you like but you're not ready to make a purchase right away, you can always add it to your shopping cart so it will be easy to find later.

Important: Putting elk meat or other items in your Amazon shopping cart or "Save for later" list does NOT reserve them! It just makes them easier to find if they're still in stock when you come back.
