I purchased a pkg of elk patties yesterday, and want to make sure I cook them up right. The only info I have been able to find on them is to make sure I dont cook them too long or they will dry out. Its a 4pk of patties, hamburger style. We are planning a trip to my sister's in AZ, and her dh will be taking my dh hunting, said in thier area hunting is good. So I hope to get a good supply of recipes before my freezer gets full. Do you use elk in place of just any meat, interchangeable? That is how we use our deer meat. Where my dh hunts the deer are corn fed and never taste gamey so I have never had to do anything extra to it. Thats probably why I have lost my taste for ground beef, LOL. Thanks in advance!!!
