Yup, that's how I knew jkath meant wapiti and not moose.

But the Europeans think we are talking about moose when we say elk. Here in Canada it's mostly known as wapiti nowadays. It's the Cree word for the critter.

Hey there pacanis :) Long time no see!

I'm a huge fan of Bison too - probably eat it 2-3x each week. However, I have a sweet bf who brought me elk. I was thinking of the same thing, as maybe little meatballs or bun-less sliders (well, I guess that would be flat meatballs....)...

however, the idea you have, Andy M, about adding a chutney - oooh that's a good one. I really do want to let the meat shine through the ingredients. And putting vegs and starch next to it - perf.

You guys are awesome! Thank you so much!
If you do try it, it is best made with a venison roast. The venison must be cooked for hours with the same spices, some finely chopped bacon fat and a little water to cover. The meat must be pulled apart into fine bits like pulled pork. Then you have a traditional South African game pie filling.

There is really not much you can do with only 1 lb of Elk. Other then burgers. It is said that Elk, as far as wild game meat, is the closest thing to beef. So cook it the way you like your beef.You can also add a pound of pork and a pound of beef to it and make chili or meatloaf.

Wapiti... okay, now that's just a cool word to say. :D

I'll let you guys know what I do with it, and when I do.
I'm also going to be playing around with frogs legs soon.

I think wapiti is a cool word too. That's the main reason I like using it.
