Venison Recipes

My dh brought home 60lbs of ground venison a couple months ago and I have been cooking with it so much that at this point hamburger tastes funny to us. But I am out of ideas of what to cook and today I'm exhausted and my creative brain has taken the day off, any ideas for good family meals using ground venison?

  • It's good in chili, spaghetti, meatloaf, meatballs, sloppy joes ...or any other recipe ... mix it 1/2 and 1/2 with regular beef or pork to change the flavor a little.

  • Why did they grind it all up? Surprised they didn't leave any backstrap or steaks ....

  • A friend at dh's work gave him the deer and dh didn't really know how to ask for different cuts. This is our first time with venison, next time I will go with him to the butchers.

  • you can send it to me! we have not had any deer meat in our freezer for a couple of years and we miss it. hubby processes it himself, and we usually just have roasts, but when i grind it i use it in anything i would use hamburger for.
