Grill for 3 minutes per side and finish with maple butter
- 8 elk medallions approx. 2 oz. each
- 8 slices of thick cut maple bacon
- 2 tbsp. of maple syrup
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
- veggies and potatoes for serving
Make the compound maple butter by putting the maple syrup, butter and thyme in a dish or ziploc bag and squishing it until well combined. Form into a useable shape, like a log or ball, and refrigerate until it’s solid again.
Preheat your grill to 400 to 450°F.
Wrap your elk medallions with one slice of bacon each along the edge. You may have to fasten it with a toothpick.
Grill your elk over direct, high heat for about 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until the touch test says that it’s medium rare. When the steaks are nearly there, finish them with about 1 tsp. of maple butter each.
Serve with your favorite veggies and potatoes for a fantastic meal.
What a view
Sure this recipe sounds super easy, and actually it was pretty quick to come together. But you and your eating companions will find yourselves wondering where the candlelight, white table cloths and tux-wearing-waiters are! This was stunning and delicious. Also, if there’s leftover maple butter, use it for baked sweet potatoes. Super yum.
