My hubby isn't a deer hunter. But we know a few people that share deer meat. Please share some of the different ways you cook deer meat.

We use venison in all sorts of ways. Our favorite way is Venison meatloaf. It is not as fatty and has a wonderful flavor. We use ground venison in all sorts of recipes calling for hamburger. Spaghetti and chili are outstanding, also. For a deer roast, I just put it in the crock pot on low in the morning, with onions and cream of mushroom or celery and just let it slow cook all day.

I always cook deer meat I am given with a really good barbecue sauce, or with the seasonings for chili. I cook the roasts like roasts and the ground meat like hamburger. It is a little on the lean side, so I can use a little oil or fat with it. The seasonings and sauces make it very tasty. I just use it like any other cut of meat.

It's been a long time since I've had deer meat, but we used to slice it, then roll in flour and salt and fry it like chicken fried steak.

That's the way we always prepare it. After letting it soak in salt water with a raw potatoe in it. Just looking for other ways to cook it. Thanks.

I get deer meat all the time from the hunters that hunt on my farm. I like to make it into a stew quite often. I don't usually eat it unless it's mixed in with something else as sometimes (not always) it tastes gamey. When I do eat like a deer steak or something, I usually tenderize it by rinsing it off first, and tenderizing it by wiping some vinegar over it (and letting it set in the fridge a while first.) If I get it in the ground form, I use it just like I'd use hamburger in spaghetti, and things like that. Often, I will mix equal parts of regular beef hamburger with it, and nobody can ever tell the difference. Here's a few of my favorite places for venison recipes: http://internationalhunters.homestead.com/VenisonRecipes.html http://allrecipes.com/Recipes/Meat-and-Poultry/Game-Meats/Venison/Main.aspx http://www.venison-meat.com/html/recipes.html http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/tabid/5679/default.aspx

Here is a link that should help you out. You sure can complain about free meat with the way grocery prices keep going up. http://internationalhunters.homestead.com/VenisonRecipes.html
