With a life long love of hunting and cooking it only stands to reason that I would end up publishing a Venison Recipes page. This page will be a collection of my own tried and trued vension recipes as well as others from trusted sources.
In the begining. . .
I didn’t always have a love affair with eating venison. I enjoyed the hunting and being in the woods with Dad but when it came to eating it I’ll admit that I was less than enthused. God Bless my Dad, he is a great woodsman but his culinary skills are a bit lacking. I remember trying to smile as I choked down yet another dry and gamey piece of venison. Then something changed for me. We went to dinner at a hunting buddies of my Dad’s house, and his wife made the most wonderful venison sauerbraten for us. It was moist and flavorful! I was in heaven! I made a decision right then and there that when I got older I would learn prepare healthy and delicious meals from my deer harvest. This has led me on a years long journey to educate friends and family about how good properly prepared venison could be!
Here is a great article on getting your deer from the field to the freezer. When it comes to storing your venison I’m a firm believer in a good vacuum sealer like the Foodsaver Gamesaver Titanium and a good chest freezer ( I’ve got this one just for venison). If you are still concerned about gaminess check out this old post.
