Ok, so the same guy who gave me all that bison a few weeks ago just brought me an elk roast. How do I cook it? I know it's very lean and should be cooked in a crock pot. All the recipes I saw on line include things I can't have. Should I just use carrots seeing I am off nightshades? And they say to sear it in vegetable oil first. Well, olive oil doesn't seem to work for me. Can I use butter? I haven't even tested coconut oil yet but it seems I'm intolerant to so many things, I'd hate to try it and find out I ruined the whole roast for myself. Do I really have to sear it at all?
They say to cut slits in the roast and put a bunch of butter in it. I guess I can do that. They also say I'll end up with a bunch of juices to make gravy. I can thicken it with rice flour, right? Because I can't do corn starch.
How about spices? I've never had elk before, but I've heard it is the best of all wild game meats. What spices would go good with it? Or should I just cook it plain?
He brought me a bunch of ground elk too. THAT I know how to cook - the same way I cook my ground bison.
