If all goes according to plan during an elk hunting adventure, you’ll have a freezer full of elk meat once it’s all over. This elk meat will last you a long time, and it’ll provide you with a whole host of benefits when you eat it on a regular basis. Learn about just how valuable elk meat can be below.
It’s jam-packed with nutrients.
Are you looking to add a little bit more lean protein to your diet? You’ll find what you’re looking for in your freezer when it’s filled with elk meat. Elk meat has about 18 grams of protein in every three-ounce serving. At the same time, it only has about 7 grams of fat in it, which is less fat than you’ll find in beef. Additionally, you can get iron and a bunch of different B vitamins by eating elk meat regularly.
It’s easy to make.
If you’ve never cooked elk meat before, you might be under the impression that it’s difficult to make it. But it’s actually easier than cooking many other meats. You can process elk meat into ground elk meat so that it’s every bit as easy to cook as ground beef. Doing this will also help you cook it quickly on nights when you don’t have time to sit around and wait for dinner to be done.
It tastes great when you cook it right.
Despite what you may have been told in the past, elk meat isn’t gamey. It also isn’t tough. It’s a very savory type of meat that you can substitute in for ground beef without skipping a beat. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that elk meat tends to be more flavorful when you cook it slow on low heat. You can make the most of it by taking your time when cooking it whenever possible.
