Grilled Elk Venison
Elk Steak can taste as good as beef if you know what you're doing. We show you how.
Large Ziploc Bag
Instant Read Thermometer
- 4-6 Elk Steak
- 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 cup Olive Oil
- 1/2 cup Soya Sauce
- 1/2 cup Jack Daniel's Whiskey
- 1/4 cup Dijon Mustard We used homemade beer stout mustard
- 1/2 TBSP Salt
- 1 1/2 TBSP Steak Seasoning
In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients (aside from the steaks). Mix well. Pour marinade into a large ziploc bag.
Add the steaks to the marinade, and seal the ziploc bag well. Marinade in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to 8 hours.
Start up the grill and heat to about 500 degrees Fahrenheit. I use our Broil King gas grill. I find when searing steak, the pellet grill just doesn't get quite hot enough. Oil the grates with vegetable oil. Place the steaks on the grill and monitor closely. How soon you flip will depend on how thick the steaks are. You may need to flip in 1-3 minutes depending on steak thickness and heat. Use a instant read thermometer to determine doneness. You want to remove the steaks when the internal temp. is 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the steaks on a plate or platter and tent with aluminum foil. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
