  • i would maybe try a crock pot though because the meat is usually a little rougher

  • If its just a side of deer meat. Get some Bacon and some Allegro marinade. Cut the meat in cubes and soak it over night in the marinade. Then wrap each piece in a piece of bacon and use a tooth pick to keep secure. Then just grill is SOOOO good...

  • I like it as jerky. I really love home made jerky.

    It's great in a pot roast/ crock pot. Slow cooking it loosens the meat up. It's not very fatty and the muscle tissue is tighter than beef bc deer actually run around. Cook it with a little wine or beer bc the alcohol will help soften the tissue.

    You can also fillet it thin and grill it like steak. I season it with garlic and rosemary.

  • I always slice it to about 1/2 in think and fry it in a pan with crisco and an onion sliced on top and mushrooms.

  • I've always just prepared whatever cut of venison that I had in the same way I would prepare the same cut of beef and it has always worked out fine. Just be careful not to overcook the venison b/c it's much more lean than beef - think of it like buffalo, which is also very lean and will dry out quick if overcooked.
