Recipe: Marinated Elk Steak

Who doesn’t love a tender, juicy elk steak? We certainly do! Nothing better than natural, lean, organic steak to finish off a long day out in the field! This marinade we found on allrecipes.com in particular looks spectacular.  Variations could include fresh garlic, some hearty herbs like rosemary or thyme, or even fresh ginger — good, bold flavors that would stand up well to a perfect elk steak!

Just remember that if you want to add a glaze you use during cooking, mix up some additional marinade that is just for brushing on instead of using the leftover mix that is in contact with raw meat.

If you try this, let us know what you think. And we’ll keep searching for the best fresh game recipes to share with you!



Elk Steak Marinade

  • Prep time:

  • Cook time:

  • Ready In:


  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds elk steak


  1. Whisk canola oil, onion, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, garlic powder, and pepper in a bowl until marinade is well mixed. Place elk steak in a large resealable plastic bag and pour marinade over meat. Coat meat with marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Drain elk steak and discard marinade.
  3. Cook steaks on the preheated grill until they are beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the center, 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).
