No Elk? No Problem! Grilled Elk Steak with Buttered Asparagus Can Easily Be Swapped with Beef
Beef tenderloin can easily be swapped in for Grilled Elk Steak with Buttered Asparagus if you don’t have easy access to elk. I know many of you don’t have a freezer full of elk meat, and that’s okay! I wanted to share this recipe because I do happen to have a freezer full of elk meat, and I know there are a few of you out there who enjoy hunting and were successful this year. Have you ever had elk roast? A recipe for this amazing meal will also be forthcoming in the next couple weeks :0)
Elk Meat can Easily be Dressed Up for a Fancy Night-in at Home or a Special Date or Holiday Dinner.
A marinade of olive oil, soy sauce, garlic, rosemary and oregano is simple but has the perfect flavors to make Grilled Elk Steak with Buttered Asparagus really shine. When it’s time to go on the grill I sprinkle it with some steak seasoning to help it caramelize.
The steak seasoning goes on the asparagus too, (along with some butter) so it pairs perfectly with the meat. The asparagus spears are then wrapped in foil and placed on the grill to steam while the steaks cook.
I love the rustic simplicity of this recipe; it doesn’t get any more natural that this, especially if you purchase organic asparagus. Elk meat is very very lean, and asparagus is high in fiber and vitamins K and B1. I don’t know if I would label this recipe as ‘healthy’ but it is certainly clean eating! I like my steaks medium to well done (as you can see above, no pink) of course you can cook it however you like and it will be delicious!Print
Looking for a few more sides to round out this meal? I would recommend Southwestern Curly Sweet Potato Fries or Mocktail Fruit Salad.
