Do you have a food grinder, such as an attachment to a Kitchen Aid machine, to make ground venison? A food processor might work too.

My Venison Burgers

I've had alot of success adding 10% - 20% pork fat to my venison while putting it through the grinder. I think I have the proportions correctly:

4-5 lbs. venison
1 lbs. pork fat

Grind together. I use an attachment to my Kitchen Aid mixer to grind up my meat. When everything is put through the grinder, stir it a few times with a spoon to make sure the fat is evenly mixed. Form into patties seperated with small sheets of wax paper and freeze.

If you want to jazz up your venison burgers:
(1) add one packet of dried French Onion soup mix to the ground Venison, and
(2) hit the mix with Lee & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce.

Put a roast in the crockpot along with a can of cream of mushroom soup, add carrots and taters. Start it in the mornin' and let it cook all day on low. By supper time your'e ready for some good eatin'.

IMHO the fat adds a binder to the meat and flavor, it will be very dry if you cook it done as needed.

chunk-o-deer meat
1/2 onion
1 beer
1 bottle good BBQ sauce,,,not the cheap crap
water to cover if needed
all in a crock pot all day

mince it up if it doesn't fall apart (I discard the juice left over)
add bun/slaw/ and more sauce

eat with more good beer (Guiness or Yuengling preffered)

enjoy!!!

If you're looking for something simple, try frying some steaks with a little butter. Add salt and pepper when it is almost done. Make sure not to over cook it, a little pink on the inside is a good thing.

Or substitute season salt for the salt and pepper.

Grilled with any of the above seasonings is good too. Again, don't over cook it.

Roasts are also good as mentioned above. You can also take a good beef roast recipe and use venison.

+1 I ALWAYS add some kind of fat to my venison.

Tastiest thing at the hunt club is fried tenderloin....

Slice your loin into little medallions, about a quarter in thick or LESS.
Cover the bottom of a frying pan with vegetable oil...about 1/4 inch deep...
In a ziplock, put some flour, salt and pepper to season...
Pour a bit of milk in a bowl.
Dip the slices of loin in the milk, just enough to get it wet...
Toss the medallions around in the flour concoction...
Fry in vegetable oil on one side, for about 2-3 minutes....
Turn heat down a bit (not too much) and turn the slices over...fry until you cut one open and it's not too red for you...
Let cool and devour....AWESOME!

OR

Take the two front shoulders....put them whole in a crock pot full, covered with water...
Cook all day until meat falls off the bone.
Drain the water....
Add the frozen vegetable soup mixes (potatoes, carrots, corn, peas, etc)
Add a little season salt...
Great stew.

I ususally take the backstrap meat and cut it into steak size chunks and rub in a mix of Cajun spices on it and put them on the grill.

A lot of the meat from the hind quarters usually finds its way into what I call "frying steak" What I do is cut thin peices of meat that are about the size of a chicken patty and take a meat tenderizer and pound it until it is very then, I roll it in flour and fry it on the stove top. Works well with eggs in the morning and mashed potatos at night.

The trick to venison, as with any lean meat, is long, low, wet heat. If you treat it like beef you will be disappointed.

Stuffed Venison Tenderloin

Stuffing:
Four or five slices of bacon
1/4 cup each diced onion, carrots, & celery
Bread Crumbs or Corn Meal
Pepper (to taste)
Garlic powder (to taste)

Fry all but one slices of bacon. Set aside to drain & cool.

Add onion, carrots, & celery to bacon grease in pan. Fry until veggies are soft. Allow to cool.

Crush bacon & return pieces to pan. Add enough bread crumbs or corn meal to make a nice "binder" for the other ingredients. I don't measure here, just eyeball it. If I had to guess, I'd say 1/3 to 1/2 cup.

Slice tenderloin almost in half, lengthwise (like you would a baked potato before loading it up). Fill with stuffing. Run the remaining slice of raw bacon down the top of the stuffing.

Cook covered in a casserole dish at 325 degrees for 40-45 minutes, depending on thickness of the tenderloin.

I served two of these at my company's pot-luck Christmas Party a few weeks ago. It was the first dish to run out.

Enjoy!

+1 on the fat.
Side meat or regular bacon wrapping,as with a fillet mignon, also works well.

We add fat because the taste of what little venison fat exists seem terrible to most who are accustomed to corn fed beef and pork. Since I butcher my own (and butcher is a good word for what I accomplish), I also have some silver connective tissue in my meat. This also creates an unpleasant flavor that is best masked with other fats.

I grind most of my venison roasts into burger mixed with excess pork fat trimmed from hams or other recently cooked meats,etc. Adding pork sausage such as Gunnoes also works well when grinding meat for patties,chili,stroganoff,etc.

Here's a couple of my favorite:

Marinate the tenderloin in Greek salad dressing for about a day. Then, grill it. Leave it pink in the middle. Serve with Greek salad (onion, green and red peppers soaked in dressing with feta cheese crumbled on top) and steamed white rice. Its really good if you stuff everything into a pita and eat it like a sandwich.

Other things to do are to buy powdered fajita mix and substitute cuts of the steak for the beef or chicken. The gound also makes a great chili base. No need for extra fat in any of these.

The Greek one will almost certainly become your favorite. Its fast, easy and you can't screw it up. The taste is out of this world.

That's it you are hooked. Now you will be hunting to keep the freezer full until the next season. Better plan on an additional freezer if you don't all ready have one.

I marinated the meat in soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, onion, and crushed red pepper flakes.

I was suprised at how it turned out. Honestly, when I was making it, my stomach was starting to turn. But Afplayboy made me taste it...and it was really good.
