Make the hunters in your family so happy with our Elk Steak Stroganoff Recipe!
It is not an easy task to bring home an elk! So if your family are hunters, or you are lucky enough to know someone who is (like we do), then it’s a real treat to have it around. Wild game like Elk and Deer have a “gamey” flavor which is a mild sour taste that shows up towards the end of each bite. Some people love it and others would rather tone it down a bit. Our recipes bring out the flavor of this beautiful meat in a milder way. If you happen to have any ground elk meat to cook with, then you’ll love our Grilled Red Wine and Garlic Elk Steak Recipe, Spicy Tequila Elk Steak Fajitas Recipe and our Elk Chili Recipe!

Elk Steak Stroganoff Recipe Slow Cooker Tips & Tricks
Let’s just have a little talk about our slow cookers here for a minute. . .
As most of you know I’m a graduate of the Culinary School and one of the classes that’s required is Sanitation and Safety. During this class we had an eye-opening chat about slow cookers and how they can be the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and pathogens.
- If not careful they can be the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and pathogens.
- Preheat your crock pot just like you preheat your oven so plug it in and turn it to the high setting to get it nice and hot from the start for cooking. After all there is only one little probe heating the whole slow cooker!
- Add everything into the crock pot as warmed up as it can be, to cut down on the getting-the-food-hot portion of cooking, this is where you need to be cautious and make sure it is all hot and up to cooking temperature in 2-3 hours.
- If food stays between 41 degrees and 135 degrees for 4 hours, then it has to be thrown out because the bacteria and pathogens have had much too much time to grow and a food borne illness is a likely result.
- If you add meat; be sure it is thawed and NEVER added frozen, if it’s beef or pork brown it first.
- Add liquids hot ie: like use HOT water or warm up any liquids in the microwave first then add them in already hot.
- Spray the ceramic insert with cooking spray to make clean up a snap! It’ll wipe out with no sticking!
Slow Cookers are wonderful things and if we take a couple of quick precautions to keep food safe while using them… they are even better! 🙂
