First off, special “Thanks!” to What’s Cooking with Doc fan (and Blueberry Festival Grand Prize Winner) Jeff for the incredible elk tenderloins. These beautiful steaks were marinated overnight with an Asian infused mixture (recipe follows). If you don’t have access to Dr. Mike’s Asian blend (details on the spice blends coming soon!), use your finest Chinese five star spice. The grilled goodies were topped with an apricot ginger glaze and served with Pink Madagascar Rice with cilantro and a Farmer’s Market medley of fresh veggies, simply sautéed. Five stars from the mountains and fields of Montana to you! This recipe works well with Bison, other game meats or even a cut of steak!
