I'm the lucky recipient of several packages of elk backstrap. It is thinly sliced. Would appreciate recipe suggestions. Thanks!

Olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill couple minutes on each side, depending on thickness

I cast iron all mine to med rare to the rare side.
Cast iron really seals in the mositure and flavor.

Sadly I'm out

I marinate my tenders and backstrap in teriyaki for an hour while the mesquite coals are just right. Depending on thickness, maybe a minute or two on each side. Pull off, and rest for 3 minutes. Usually a good medium rare onto the plate.

Season with Salt, Pepper and Thyme cook rare- med rare on a hot grill to get that great sear on both sides to lock in that flavor. Let sit for 5 mins before slicing

Salt pepper cooked on the grill no more than medium rare. To chicken fry is a waste for that cut, even though it would be good.
