Nevada Foodies: Elk Curry with Toasted Coconut Recipe

This elk curry recipe from our featured blogger, Nevada Foodies, looks amazing! I love the thought of a little coconut and lime juice to make it a summer dish. Time to dig into my venison stash. ~MC

Here’s another easy to make wild game curry dish that you can use with elk or venison meat. This dish is rich, creamy and packed full of flavor and fragrance. The toasted unsweetened coconut is an added bonus to each and every bite.
