Elk hunting season is less than a month away, and I’m hoping to fill the freezer with savory, healthy elk meat for making fajitas and more.
There are so many favorite reasons that I enjoy pursuing game and filling the freezer is one. If you plan your hunts, work hard, be patient, and eventually become successful, the work will begin. After enacting good game care practices, we’ll get the savory steaks, roasts and other cuts packaged and into the freezer. After that, the recipe choices are endless. Here is one of my family’s favorites.
Start to finish 1 hour
Elk Fajitas Ingredients
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 red onion, sliced
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 pounds elk, sliced into thin strips (You can use beef if elk is unavailable.)
1 green bell pepper, cleaned and sliced into thin strips
1 red bell pepper, cleaned and sliced into thin strips
1 yellow bell pepper, cleaned and sliced into thin strips
1 orange bell pepper, cleaned and sliced into thin strips
1 package Fajita seasoning (You can make your own using the recipe below.)
1 8 oz. package of fresh mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
Elk Fajitas Instructions
Heat the olive oil in a castiron pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent. Add the meat to the pan and stir until it’s brown on all sides.
Add the sliced bell peppers to the pan and stir. Sprinkle the Fajita seasoning over the mix and stir thoroughly. Cook, stir the mix occasionally until the vegetables are flaccid. Next, add the sliced mushrooms, stir and cook an additional five to ten minutes or until the mushrooms are softened.
Serve immediately with homemade flour tortillas (or corn if you like) and any of my families favorites: shredded cheese, avocado, goat cheese, sour cream, refried beans, Mexican rice, chips, salsa and a large glass of milk.
Fajita Seasoning Ingredients
1 teaspoon Mexican chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
Fajita Seasoning Instructions
