For those Paleo followers, skip the tortillas and make a wild game fajita steak salad.

If you don’t have elk, use venison or antelope as a substitute.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes


Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ to 2 pounds of elk backstrap, sirloin or roast, thinly sliced
  • 2 large sweet onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 large yellow bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon chipotle chili powder (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
