    So my wife brings home a marinade called game tame. We put elk steaks in that stuff for day and a half, put it on the cast iron skillet in just a bit of oil. Dang if that isn't the best steak I've ever had. Put a little sautéed onion and garlic butter on just to top it off.

    Dayum that looks good. To the OP — did you by any chance catch Hotel/Restaurant Nightmares when Chef Ramsay went to a place that served Elk. The proprietor said it's always tough and chewy -- Ramsay said that does not have to be the case — now you an expert can tell us if that's true or not?

    As for myself, had the best steak I ever ate in 50 years at Old Hickory Steak House in Dallas (at the Gaylord Texan) earlier this month, courtesy of the boss. I was fortunate to share a sensational tasting porterhouse. Now, back in N.Y. I wonder why I even bother buying steak.

    But I'm definitely game for checking out the OP's Game Tame marinade...next time I get some venison.

    Looks tasty.
    Gotta ask, did you age the Elk, or process it when you got back?

    I love a long marinade, really lets the flavor come out.
    But... my real question is- did you age the meat? This is just a tip....
    Next go around, hang the quarters and backstrap/tenderloins in an area the doesn't fluctuate much from 34::F- to- 38::F. Let it go for 2 weeks (3 if it freezes overnight). NO skin on, let it get a rind on it. Don't sweat a light surface mold on the rind. And then, smell it. I know that sounds weird, but you'll notice a difference in smell. When you notice that difference, process the meat the next day. The consistency of the flavor and texture is night and day. Taste will rival the best beef you've eaten.
