While the Mrs is away

So, since she is not a big fan of wild game and she is off making wedding plans with the daughter, I decided to get out some elk ribeyes.  There were three in the package.  Cut about 1" think, 4" long and 3" wide.  VERY LEAN as you can see.  Sprayed with a little butter spray then salt and pepper.  Direct heat at 550 for 60 seconds each side.  WOW!!!  Home Run.  I did settle for minute rice and a salad instead of a baked potato, but WOW.  Since this is Veterans Day, I would like to thank Chris Hickman (a soldier from Wyoming who gave me the meat) for his service.imageimage

  • Alot like beef.  Same texture.  A little sweeter.  As you can see it is VERY lean.  There were a couple bites that I could almost taste venison but most all just tasted like beef.
