What Does Elk Meat Taste Like?

If you’ve been lucky enough to have a tender, lean elk steak right off of the grill, then you know what all the fuss is about. For those that haven’t had the chance to try free range elk, the flavor is similar to beef, and is often described as clean and slightly sweet.

All of our elk are raised on ranches here in the Mountain West. Lower in fat and higher in protein than beef or chicken, our grass-fed elk aren’t treated with any antibiotics, hormones or steroids. Their meat is an excellent source of iron, phosphorus and zinc. And it tastes delicious!

The way elk is prepared greatly influences it’s flavor. We recommend keeping the flavors simple and not over cooking the meat. For some helpful tips on how to cook elk, CLICK HERE. And for some of our favorite elk recipes, check out our RECIPES PAGE.
