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.
