deer (or venison) recipies

Ok fellow hunters and/or venison lovers...

Help me out... I just got a bunch of deer steaks from my FIL and I'd like to know what recipes worked for you. I tried to make three steaks the other night. The first recipe was a cherried venison in the crock pot. It required to fry up the meat quickly in an oil and garlic, just enough to seer it. Then put it in the crock with water, an onion and a can of cherry pie filling. Um... it was pretty bland. One of the steaks was also quite gamy. I then used the rest of the meat the following night in a stew. The stew wasn't too bad but I could still taste some of the gaminess in a few bites of meat.

So what are your favorite recipes?

Re: deer (or venison) recipies

To get the gamey taste out I always soak mine in a combo of vinager and water. Then soak it in water to get the vinager taste out. When I cook it I take one of those syringe looking things and inject italian dressing in it. I cook it in the oven wrapped in foil on about 350 for a few hours. I always have the roast if that helps. Basically I treat it like a roast just lower heat for a longer time.

I grew up eating this stuff so I don't mind the gamy taste. I always love doing stew. So, I can't really help with new recipes.

Thanks for that site Susan! I'll have to try that!

I wish I had roast size venison. The only thing I have are steaks right now until DH can get out and hunt (or my FIL goes hunting again).

Thanks for the replies!

Re: deer (or venison) recipies

Last time I made venison was a few months ago, I cut up the meat, kind of like "steak tips". I always marinate it in Apple cider vinegar (or some kind of acid) and Olive oil, and season it like you would steak tips and broil! Tasted really good, if it was nice enough out I would have grilled the tips. I don't have any specific recipes, sorry but it seems like you can substitute beef and deer in just about any recipe. Sounds yummy! good luck.

Re: deer (or venison) recipies

we generally like to cut up our steaks and do kabobs... the jamaican (I can't spell to save my life) jerk marinade, (it's a 30 minute marinade) is FANTASTIC! Soak it and spear it together with mushrooms, peppers, onions, summer squash or zucchini..mmmmmmmm.
