You know the "Indian food is so spicy!" exclamations you often get from people? Well, this Spicy Elk Venison Vindaloo Recipe is definitely one of those dishes.

Vindaloo is a Portuguese dish brought to India by sailors. Indians in the region of Goa took this recipe and made it their own, turning vindaloo into a globally popular dish. It is now a staple in Indian restaurants everywhere, especially in British-Indian curry houses. Notoriously spicy, this is not a curry for timid palates.

Fiery, indeed, lamb vindaloo is one of my favorite Indian dishes. I’ve had it in restaurants, and in both jarred and frozen-dinner form. Though my eyes might water and my nose might run, I find the flavor is so addictive that I can’t stop eating it. I think it tastes just as good with elk as it does lamb.

For those wanting to try this elk...
