Antelope is another of the popular and favorite meats that become a spread for those meat eaters who love to taste different meats and different recipes.
Antelope meat needs proper preparation and cooking to make it a worthwhile effort. Antelope is a meat that is low in fat and will need frequent brushing with oil when cooking. When grilling the antelope you will need to keep brushing it with a coating of oil to prevent it from drying out. This will prevent the meat from sticking to the pan or from drying out and will retain a succulent crust on the top.
Antelope is meant to be cooked to a medium rare for it to remain tender and moist. The pieces best suited to this kind of cooking are the loins, fillets, or chops. An internal temperature of 130 degrees leaves the antelope deliciously moist and juicy. When roasting antelope it should be at low temperatures, like 180 degrees to 200 degrees F for longer hours. It should be tender when pricked with a fork.
Here is a recipe that you will surely relish in preparing your antelope dish.
