Venison Summer Sausage – Jalapeño and Cheddar, and Fat?

Fat. Venison doesn’t have much. That causes one of the main challenges to cooking it. Go too far and it will just be dry and tough. Many times, cooks (or processors) will add fat to venison. Has anyone ever told you about their amazing backstrap recipe, where they wrapped everything in bacon? Well, I would … Continue reading “Venison Summer Sausage – Jalapeño and Cheddar, and Fat?”

Venison Meatloaf Roll

“I make the most amazing meatloaf.” Nobody has ever said that. Not in the history of ground meat. I looked it up on Wikipedia, it must be true. It’s a loaf of meat.

Beer Braised Corned Venison Recipe

So you have corned the beast. Now we need to cook it to turn it into a corned venison meal. Because venison is so lean, you have to be careful at this step. If you do a standard boil, and you boil it a bit too long, you’ll end up with some shredded, dry meat … Continue reading “Beer Braised Corned Venison Recipe”
