Elk is a healthy red meat, naturally low in fat and cholesterol. In fact, according to the USDA, ounce for ounce, lean elk meat is lower in both fat and cholesterol than boneless, skinless chicken breast, but provides an equivalent amount of protein. The flavor is similar and can can be substituted nearly anywhere you would use beef.
Elk chuck roast needs to be cooked as slowly as possible. This is a lean cut. Take the time to cook it right. The easiest way to cook is by throwing all ingredients in a crock pot and come home to delicious, hearty, and healthy meal. No fuss on your part, just great taste!
