Spicy Elk Burgers

These Elk Burgers get a dose of heat from chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. This cuts the gamy flavor a bit without detracting from the great venison flavor. This burger recipe calls for two chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. If you're not a huge fan of spicy things, you can alter the recipe to tone it down.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: Makes 4 burgers
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground elk meat
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 onion, minced
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • olive oil
  • hamburger buns
Place meat in a large mixing bowl. Add minced onion, garlic, ketchup, chopped chipotles, and salt. Mix well and form into 4 large patties. Preheat grill for medium heat. Brush patties with olive oil and place onto grill. Cook for 5-6 minutes per side. Remove from heat and serve on burger buns with favorite condiments.

NOTE: I'm not a huge wild game fan, but this burgers is one of the best I've ever had. Be careful not to overcook or they'll dry out.
