Ideal for a special dinner or an impressive main course, this elk meat recipe showcases the best of wild game cooking. Despite its gourmet appeal, it's simple enough for a quick weeknight meal. Elk tenderloin is a premium cut known for its tender texture and deep, robust flavor. The meat's natural richness is complemented perfectly by a simple yet flavorful rub. The rub, made from garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and thyme, enhances the elk's inherent taste and adds a subtle depth without overpowering it. Garlic powder provides a savory undertone, onion powder a hint of sweetness, paprika lends a slight smokiness, and thyme adds a touch of earthiness.
