Antelope Carne Asada

Carne Asada

We recently moved and were reunited with our entire meat supply! (It had been staying in one of our freezers at Roy’s parent’s house, and Roy would periodically restock our own Bozeman freezer.) So I was digging through the freezer and realized a few things. 1) I have been putting off cooking the ducks Roy got months ago (and now that it is summer, heavy-flavored ducks do not seem appetizing so I will continue to put them off for a couple more months). 2) We still have a few elk roasts!! 3) We still have a lot of meat in general. Since hunting season is only a couple of months away (and Roy just found out he drew some special tags meaning more chances for more meat), I should probably start cooking (with meat) even more!

Shredded Elk Tacos

Elk roast may be my new favorite meat. I don’t think you can mess it up. You especially can’t go wrong if you take some leftover elk roast and make (these) shredded elk tacos! ;)

I made a large elk roast, shredded all of it, and used part of it for an elk mole and the rest of it for these tacos.

We were boring/lazy and continued to use the taco meat for tacos, but if you want more variety, the leftover meat could be used for enchiladas,or maybe make some rice and beans and have burritos.

Elk Mole

Bright colored peppers, tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, raisins, and many other ingredients make up this mole sauce. Unfortunately, the final photo does not indicate all of the brightness and vibrancy that goes into the sauce!

This was Roy’s first elk. He has been working incredibly hard at hunting elk since we moved to Montana. When he got a cow elk just a couple of weeks ago, we were both pretty dang happy! A common saying in our house has been the random, “Can you believe you/I got an elk?!?!”
