Elk meat hunters treat! This week on Suppertime.



Celebrating hunting season with beautiful northern BC elk

My awesome brand new brother in law Morgan got an elk a month ago and sent some of the meat down to PG. How nice. What a fine chap.

So this week on Suppertime we celebrate elk by cooking it in a rich coffee gravy and listening to tunes which celebrate Morgan & Dani, the elk and their herd life, hunting, hermits, velvet, and outdoor pretty songs.

For the elk:

4-5 chunks of elk minute steak ( thin cutlets of elk, or whatever cut you have cut about an inch thick)

1 onion sliced into rings


1 bouillon cube of whatever flavour or water (about 1.5 cups)

2 tsp flour

1 tbs instant coffee

2 tbs greek yogurt or sour cream (optional)

  • In a medium-high frying pan with oil, fry up your elk on both sides for about 2-3 minutes each. Until a nice crisp brown carmelization process takes place.
  • Add about a 1.5 cups of water, or stock, or water and bouillon cube, or just water. Whatever your have my dear.
  • Add flour and stir into water
  • Add onions
  • Place a lid on the pan slightly ajar so steam can escape
  • Reduce heat to a low or low-medium and let simmer for about 40 minutes
  • Add 2 tbsps of instant coffee and stir
  • let simmer about 5 more minutes
  • tada! Done
  • Add some greek yogurt or sour cream for a little tang and creaminess if you wish
