Just when I though tonight would be boring at the table. The she wolf and units off too the inlaws house. I got to work in a few episodes of "The Pacific" since the pak arent old enough to watch it. When she returned I thought well Ill toss on a few beef tenderloin steaks...Got too rumaging around in the freezer...Low and behold I had forgotten (possibly due to alcohol level when the gift was recieved)about the wifes boss bringing us some elk tenderloin steaks from this fall's trip to Colorodo...Pak mules and all...well I wont get into the story of the elk...Other than it tasted good....You can certianly see the diff in color of fresh vs store bought...Anyhow I hope all the pics post. I normally dont post...SOrry for the low quality pics they are from wifes iphone.

    Looks GREAT!
  • I can say your right it was great. Just spronkled with a bit of salt pepper, and a splash of lee n perrins, a dash of DP raising the steaks...In the 14 years Ive owned my egg Ive never done Elk ... So it was a first for me...Loved it...Wife....Well....She hung in there ate the steak and a half a piece of Elk. I wont complain more for me...Now I need to work my way back into his freezer on the next trip over to his house for more...

    Looks great. I did the same exact thing last night for thk kiddos. Wife and I had domestic (Fillet & NY Strip). Elk is as good as it gets. I'm sure you all saw the pics Missipi Egger posted from Loney Fest with the Elk Tenderloin. I had held onto that last one for a specical occasion! Can't buy that stuff at Costco.

    Appreciate the pics..... glad to know someone else enjoys the fruits of hunting :)

    i find when you are serving people stuff like elk, rabbit, etc. it's best to tell them AFTER. :laugh:

    people are only human, they like what they like, and dislike what they THINK they dislike.

    at christmas, my sister in law asked what i did to the roast that made it so good. i told her just salt and pepper. she said "really, that's all?" and so i told her it was in the fridge for a month unwrapped. she couldn't take back :laugh: her rave review.
