potatoes, peeled and cubed
salt and pepper to taste
ground elk meat
parsnip, peeled and diced
frozen mixed vegetables
Great recipe but make sure to be liberal with the salt and pepper. The recipe to add says to taste, but game meat contains no salt so don't be afraid to put extra on. I also made an herb brown gravy to touch it up with and it was very nice!
I did not care for this recipe. Followed exactly. seasoned exactly.
Wow, this recipe is fantastic!! I'm not a meat eater, to be honest, but I made this for friends and family becaue I was given several pounds of elk from a neighbor. I made some for myself, sans the elk, and I was amazed at how delicious parsnips are. I followed the recipe to a T for everyone and they raved about the elk version. I felt especially proud that I can still cook a "meat" dish that tastes delicious. Thanks for the fabulous recipe!!
This is a great recipe! I made a few slight changes - instead of frozen veggies, I used fresh (asparagus, red bell pepper, broccoli and carrots). I also added minced garlic along with the garlic powder. We are always looking for good game meat recipes and this is definately a keeper!!
This was great! I used a whole pound of elk meat and used a casserole dish. Four potatoes was still a lot to pile on top. My ten month old ate like a man and even loved the parsnip! I wasn't comfortable salting it as much as it needed with the baby eating with us, but just left the salt shaker out and it was fine.
Great recipe. Pretty much followed it with the exception that I used minced garlic instead of garlic powder. My picky daughter really likes this recipe and actually haves seconds. Big hit for the whole family..
my husband loves shepherds pie. I made this with ground moose. It was delicious!
I don't really have access to ground elk, so I just used ground beef, and this was absolutely delicious. I have a daughter with celiac disease, and this recipe is also gluten free. Excellent dish that has made my recipe rotation. Thank you for a fantastic recipe without processed foods and cream soups!
