Pan Fried Elk Recipe

We were blessed with a bunch of cuts of elk from a friend at church. As I haven’t cooked much game meat before I have been a bit apprehensive to cook it, even though every time I have tried it has turned out pretty well.

Tonight I decided to have a go at making Country-Fried Elk steak for dinner. I followed this recipe and it came out fantastic!

I also did some roast mini-potato, steamed vegetable and some gravy that I made from the drippings. The recipe I linked to called for “milk gravy”, but I just made my usual meet gravy and it came out a treat.

Next time I get some elk stakes I am definitely doing this one again …

How to Make the Perfect Omlette

I am a bit embarrassed to say I have always had a hard time making omelettes. Most of the time they would turn out more like scrambled eggs than an omelette. Lately though I have finally been successful in making a good omelette thanks to watching this video by Jamie Oliver

Since watching that I have finally been able to make a three egg omelette that actually looks and folds like an omelette. I add a bit of milk to my eggs, rather than doing straight eggs like Jamie Oliver does, and with the size of pan that I have three eggs seems to be the perfect amount for it to be easy to flip at the right moment.

My wife prefers the size of a a two egg omelette though, which is a bit trickier to flip as it is thinner by the time it is ready to flip, but so far they are turning out much better than they used to before I watched Jamie’s video.

Corned Beef Silverside in a Slow Cooker

Cooking Corned Silverside in the Slow Cooker is one of the easiest meals that I make.

List of ingredients:

  • Medium Corned Silverside Roast
  • 10 Pepper Corn Kernels
  • 3 Table Spoons Brown Sugar
  • Mixed Herbs
  • Splash of Vinegar
  • Water

Put the corned beef silverside in the slow cooker then sprinkle the dry ingredients over it. Pour your splash of vinegar over the silverside then cover it the silverside with water.

Cook the silverside on low for 8 – 10 hours, on high for 6 – 7 hours, or on high for 4 – 5 hours.

Corned Been Silverside is the perfect meal that you can prepare before heading off to work in the morning.

Tonight I will be serving mine with mashed potatoes, a nice green salad and maybe some bake at home rolls. We’ve got a very busy day, so a slow cooker meal is great to make dinner time a bit less crazy.
