My brother and nephew both just tagged out on antelope. The butcher is doing it in straps and tenderloins, then jerky and breakfast sausage. I have several great recipes for venison, but have heard that antelope can be a little gamey. Looking for some good recipes from the Gang.

If those goats came from grassland then they are about the sweetest meat you will find. Probably my favorite. If they came from sage they can be pretty nasty. Our favorite recipe is to take the steaks and marinade them in a garlic and herb marinade and then wrap them in bacon and grill medium rare. Awesome!!!!!

good luck

Mine always come from the sage country and it's still our favorite wild game. Mostly we grill or griddle pending on the weather outside. A light coat of olive oil then we have a Sweet Mesquite rub that works nicely. Always rare to med rare.

Doug,

That sounds good. I assume sear it first, then continue grilling on med heat? Do you have a brand mesquite rub that you prefer?

I love antelope. All of the ones I have killed came from the sage country. I like to marinate the tenderloin in allegro for a bit...then wrap them in bacon and cook them on the grill til med rare. Damn good eating!

This is also a great way to cook bear...but I cook bear well done. They can carry some funky stuff if not properly cooked.

I agree lope are my wife and my favorite wild game. I think a little Montreal Seasoning on each side of a steak and grill or pan grilled in a cast iron skillet with a little olive oil, cooked medium to medium rare is perfect.

I didn't think the antelope I got in 2012 tasted really any different than venison but it was more tender. The burger is great in chili, meat loaf, etc. We cooked the steaks on the grill after marinated in worchestire and I canned up a few roasts that I needed to use up. All of it was great, the key is getting the hide off them to cool quickly.

Just finished up a pot of pronghorn chili today as a matter of fact. Love it! Favorite way to fix steaks is this: take a steak and pound it out to thin it a little (not too much), then lightly rub both sides with olive oil. Lightly salt and pepper both sides. On one half of one side put a little sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil and spread it around kinda even. Then add a little chopped FRESH basil on top of the tomato. Fold the steak over (kinda like an omelette) and use toothpicks to hold it closed. Grill it on both sides to no more than medium rare (or it'll tend to get a little tough). It's by far my favorite way of fixing prairie goat!

I had three pounds of ground antelope, I added 1/2 a tube of Jimmy Dean hot/spicy ground sausage and used my usual meatloaf recipe. One egg, one envelope onion soup mix about 3/4 cup Heinz 57 steak sauce and a handful and a half bread crumbs. Mix it all together and I did not put anything on top. It was one of the best meatloaves I ever made.
