Sweet-and-Sour Elk Recipe

Sweet-and-Sour Elk Recipe

Baked elk steaks smothered with a simple, savory sauce is a special dinner we've enjoyed for years. My husband, Ralph, and I used to do quite a bit of hunting, so I accumulated lots of terrific recipes like this one. -Susan Bowdle, Ephrata, Washington

"There are no hunters in my family, but this recipe was great with leftover beef. I bake beef roasts often and always seem to have lots of beef leftover which is too dry for sandwiches. This is a terrific way to use it up. It also cuts down on the cooking time, too, as I only baked it the last 30-40 minutes. Leftover steak would be great in it too."
