Units of Measurement:
3 Pound elk tenderloin
3 Tablespoon Olive oil
3 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
3 zucchinis
3 yellow squash
12 Small sweet peppers
12 cherry tomatoes
2 Tablespoon Traeger Prime Rib Rub


  • 1

    Cut the elk loin evenly into 2 inch thick chunks. Drizzle meat lightly with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and let sit in a large bowl.

  • 2

    Chop the zucchini and yellow squash into 3/4 inch thick coins. Next, cut the ends off some small sweet peppers and remove the seeds. Take the coins, vine-ripened cherry tomatoes and peppers, and toss them in the large bowl with the tenderloin.

    Add a little more olive oil and then more balsamic. Once everything has an even, light coating, finish it off by adding a generous amount of Traeger Prime Rib Rub.

    Be sure you are continually tossing the mixture in the bowl so that you get an even seasoning.

  • 5

    Stack alternating pieces of vegetables and meat onto a skewer to make a perfect looking kabob.
