My DH is out at deer camp and he got a deer today. It was his first 8 point buck and he is so excited about it. I personally dont care for the taste of the meat. It tastes too wild for my taste. But, this year I am going to give it a try since we will have a lot of it. I was wondering if anyone has any good recipes for venison?

My family soaks it over night in salt water in the fridge....then we slice it into 1/8-1/4 inch slices, then bread it with either flour with seasonings mixed in or some sort of pork breading then fry it in oil or butter...the salt water draws alot of the blood out so it doesnt taste so wild

Ground venison is good for sloppy joes.
Deer tacos are amazing. Use a pound of ground beef, pound of ground sausage, and a pound of venison chunks...sorry dont know how else to say it :)...thats what my grandpa would do and they are amazing. He even made his own taco sauce for it. Seriously best in the world.
You could make meatloaf and use half beef half venison
Chili
I would suggest using half ground beef and half venison in anything you would normally make with ground beef

I think milk would do the same thing. You wouldnt have to soak it over night either. Fried deer steaks.



Damn OP now I want some deer meat

We soak it overnight as well, and fry it in butter. We only use a coating of salt and pepper though- it's very good!

A few of our favs are



roast with potatoes carrots mushrooms celery an onions, season with whatever you would like. I throw everything in the crock pot for like 12 hours (except the celery that only needs to go like 3-4 hours) I use beef stock or broth and the last 3 hours I add 3 packets of brown gravy mix in. It is so good and honestly there is no gamey taste at all!



take the tenderloin and cut it about an inch thick, wrap in bacon and secure with toothpicks, I season with steak seasoning or Mrs Dash and cook them just how you would a steak.



take small steaks and dip it in egg then batter it a mixture of smashed ritz crackers, smashed corn flakes, and a little flour and fry in oil like you would when making fried chicken.



marinate steaks in which ever steak marinade you like the best. We love the Jack Daniels kind! And cook as a regular steak.



Or you could always make a stew.



I'm sure I'll think of a few more soon and I'll add those too.
