I'm finally eating my Antelope. Very lean indeed !! Loving it. In fact, it may be leaner than White Tail.
The processor called it "chops", but it was boneless. Not sure what part of the animal it was.. Olds Processing in Gilette.

I've only eaten it once, years ago a co-worker brought in some steaks and grilled them up. Delicious and I could cut them with a fork.

On a sheep or pig, the chops are the backstraps. Are they round?

I find antelope to be very mild and pleasant.

Antelope heart is my favorite..rest of it makes fine table fair as well. Probably the backstraps...I have used Olds a couple of times..but I always request the back straps cut in half.

Never tried Antelope, but cant imagine it being any more lean than Aoudad. That stuff needs a pressure cooker to be edible.

Just light seasoning and grill it med rare. We find it very juicy and tender. Our favorite meat when grilled or in a pressure cooker/crock pot. When we fry it seems like it toughens and dries it out for some reason... and gives it a gamey taste.

I found antelope to be delightful. Tender as stated. Rutting buck in October. 70 deg, rode in truck bed for nearly an hour unfortunately. Still great. I made some burger as well and absolutely love it. It's visually different then most whitetail I grind.

Have you ever injected with marinade or just season the outside

When grinding pronghorn burger we add pork fat and just a little bacon in grind to make it hold better, about 10-15%. It taste amazing and adds moisture for grilling.
