Recently, my lovely daughter, Ronda, married someone who likes to hunt and the last time I was visiting her, she gave me a cooler full of elk meat. I made a stew with it and it was delicious. Healthy, too, since elk is one of the highest protein meats you can eat and it even makes your vegetables taste good.
Since it is the weekend and 1:15 am and I am done working, I thought I would give you all the recipe for elk stew. It is basically beef stew but with elk meat.
For those of you who think I should stick to posting about judo, know this - if you are cutting weight, elk has less than half the calories of beef. You CAN have your steak and make weight, too.
Step 1: Shoot an elk.
Step 2: Make a stewIngredients
1 lb elk steak
1/2 cup flour
1 cup rice
Pepper, salt & other seasonings
Beef stew mix
- Cut the meat into 1/2" cubes
- Coat in flour mixture with seasonings added. I'm big on using whatever is in the cupboard for stew, so I added salt, pepper, something called Grains of Paradise and another spice called Slap Yo Mama that I got from my friend James Wall, who has has judo clubs in Orlando, FL and Denham Springs, LA
- Coat a pan with olive oil and brown the meat over medium heat
- Chop vegetables
- Put all of the ingredients except rice in a stew pot over high heat, including the rest of the flour mixture . Heat to boiling.
- Once it's boiling, add the rice.
- Cover and cook about 20 minutes. By then, all of the rice and vegetables should be soft.
It tastes amazing.
