Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse is known for its menu of traditional steaks and wild game that comes straight from our own ranch. One of our recent favorites we’ve been cooking up lately is our Espresso Crusted Elk Tenderloin. This beautiful dish on our menu is not only delicious, but the meat that makes the meal is excellent for your health.
Here are five reasons why you should include our Elk tenderloin in your current plan to stay healthy during these trying times.
Elk Meat is Low in Fat and Cholesterol
Elks are some of the most active animals in our ecosystem. That’s why it’s obvious that Elk meat is something that is extremely low in fat and cholesterol.
For example, a 3-ounce portion of Elk comes in at 7.4 grams of fat and 164 calories. For a dish so delicious, it’s amazing how beneficial it can be for your body.
Elk meat is extremely high in protein. Three ounces of the meat can actually provide you with around 23 grams of protein. This is around the same amounts of protein you’d find in a hearty serving of chicken and turkey. So, if you’re tired of poultry for a healthy dose of nutrients, try some Elk to meet your daily protein needs.
Our Elk is All Natural
Nobody wants to toss processed, chemically enhanced meats into their body. That’s why our restaurant only serves up meat harvested directly from our own Y.O. Ranch. We guarantee that our Elk are sustainable, free-range, and have an all-natural diet.
Our chef, Tony Street believes in putting the best effort into our meals, and that starts directly at how we raise and treat our livestock. Trust any plate at our steakhouse to be cruelty-free and naturally nutritious.
Elk Meat Helps With Weight Loss
Let’s face facts, all of the health elements of Elk meat can help with gradual weight loss. One of the most popular ways of losing weight is to increase protein intake in a balanced diet. While a good steak is always a fine choice, we can say that Elk has beef beaten in the weight loss department. The low caloric count of the meat as well as its element of protein make Elk a filling and fit choice as a main portion.
Give Your Immune System a Boost
There’s never been a more important time to be concerned with immune system health. So, we suggest filling up your plate with a hearty portion of Elk. Elk contains a great amount of zinc, an antioxidant that helps with the creation of more immune cells. Let us provide the meat you need to aid in your body’s fight against stress and inflammation.
