Eichler's Grilled BackStrap

Simple and Quick Grilled Elk Backstrap

Allow 6-8 ounces per serving

1 cup soy sauce

½ cup olive oil

½ cup A1 steak sauce

4 large cloves of garlic, chopped

½ cup chopped onion

1 tablespoon Jane’s Krazy Mixed-Up salt or similar seasoned salt with garlic

2 tablespoons Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning

In a non-metallic container, combine all the ingredients. Add a whole elk backstrap. Make sure the marinade covers the meat and marinate overnight. Discard leftover marinade.

Grill to desired doneness and slice across the grain into ½-inch thick slices. As wild game has less fat than beef, be careful to not overcook it. Medium rare to medium is our preference.
