The perfect choice for an impressive centerpiece presentation, our Cervena Elk Tenderloin is big: both in terms of size and flavor. Deeply savory, with a tender texture and distinctly sweet finish, Elk boasts a singularly enticing flavor profile. Versatile and easy to prepare, our Elk Tenderloin absorbs flavors readily and lends itself to a wide range of preparations. Roast whole to carve at the table or fabricate this rich and luxurious portion into medallions or steaks.
The inherent sweetness in Elk pairs beautifully with other sweet flavors; consider caramelized onions or a red-fruit reduction. Remember, Elk is a lean meat, so be sure not to overcook it. Best served medium-rare, quickly grill or sear Elk steaks and closely monitor roasts. While timing is crucial, Elk cooks much more quickly than beef, making it a go-to choice for the busy chef or anyone who needs a quick dinner in twenty minutes or less. One other bonus characteristic of Elk is that there is practically no shrinking during cooking, thanks once again to its lean characteristics.
