Tiny House Cooking – Marinated Elk


A tasty marinade for any meat! I used elk this time. I’m trying something a bit different, and sharing a mini series of recipes that could for sure all be made separately, but that I put all together for one dinner. I almost put them all together in one video, but figured that would be too long and they do not have to go together at all. But wanted to give you an idea of how I would use each of these to make a full meal. For the other connected videos:

If you are new to my channel and Fy Nyth in general, welcome and congratulations on joining the Fy Nyth Flock! I’m Ariel. I live off grid (as in no physical connection to public utilities) in a tiny house on wheels in the mountains of western Wyoming. I’ve been living this lifestyle for more than three years now and love it! What will you find if you follow my channel and watch my videos?

Real life here. I try to show the good and the bad. The ups and the downs. What works, and what doesn’t. The parts I love (most of it!), and the things that suck. Not just the showroom version of a tiny house, but everyday life in a tiny house. Not just the romantic idea of “homesteading” or off grid life, but the everyday details of this lifestyle. I split my own wood for heat, carry my water by hand, and attempt to grow as much of my own food as I can between the weather and wildlife here. I hope to help others learn from my mistakes and make life just a little easier for anyone else interested in pursuing a similar lifestyle.

I live in a somewhat harsh and cold climate, but enjoy the stunning sceanery and wildlife that I am surrounded by on a daily basis. You’ll also see videos of of the nature and wildlife around my home. If you are interested in my photography or purchasing a photo, I’d love if you follow that over at or!

For a bit of my background, as a child, I was fortunate enough to be able to spend much of my free time exploring and playing in the woods. Little has changed now that I’m older I suppose. I moved to a place with a bigger woods and still enjoy spending my time outside gardening, hiking, exploring, and photographing the natural world around me. As the eldest of seven children who grew up in a homeschooling family, I had the opportunity, not always appreciated at the time, to learn to do quite a bit of work. I’ve enjoyed a wide range of jobs, everything from greenhouses and flower arranging to wilderness therapy with teens, to milking cows. Mostly, I enjoy doing the kinds of things that I think provide a real service or value to others. Some of my other hobbies include backpacking, hosting people, cooking, preserving food, anything to do with nutrition, reading, journalling, and sitting around a fire and talking to my close friends.
