Cover and cook on medium heat for additional 2 1/2 - 3 hours depending on roast size. (Total cooking time approx. 4 1/2- 5 hours) Remove roast and vegetables from pot.

19. Tip for Red Game Meat

Posted By: David Mitchell  

Ingredients

Adding fresh ground (not the powder) nutmeg along with your other seasonings will add a new dimension to red game meats such as venison. I've tried it on ostrich, kangaroo, buffalo and a few other exotics and it's fantastic.


20. The Elitist's Corned Venison

Posted By: Tom Caceci 

Ingredients

  • 4 quarts hot water (needn't be boiling, but that's okay)
  • 2 cups of coarse pickling salt (as a substitute if you can't get pickling salt, use **1-1/2** cups ordinary table salt)  
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons whole mixed pickling spices
  • 1 tablespoon whole allspice
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
  • 6 cloves fresh garlic, crushed or chopped very fine

Directions  

Combine all the ingredients above. When this mixture has cooled to room temperature, pour it over a single 5 pound piece of lean venison which has been stabbed a few times with a sharp fork. The meat should be submerged. Place in a cool spot (preferably the refrigerator) for about 3 weeks. Turn the meat every 3 days or so. To cook, rinse off the brine and strain out the spices. Rinse these, and simmer the meat and spices together in water for 3-4 hours, or until fork-tender. I use a large plastic tub with a tight-fitting lid to incubate this stuff. Don't use metal vessels, because the salt will attack and corrode them. Glass or crockery is ideal.


21. Swiss Venison Steak in Crockpot

Posted By: Adam Nelson  

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs of venison (or other meat) steaks or chops  
  • 1 packet Lipton Onion and Mushroom Soup mix

Cover and cook on Low for approximately 6-7 hours, stirring occasionally. Serve meat and gravy over mashed potatoes or noodles. Meat will melt in your mouth!


22. Sweet Glazed Venison

Posted By: Geoffrey C. Williams 

Ingredients

  • 1 Venison backstrap (I have used deer but any strap of the same size will work) 
  • 1 two liter Coke (the cheap stuff works best) 
  • 4-6 ounces orange juice  
  • 3-5 tablespoons brown sugar

Directions  

Cut your backstrap(preferably not fully cleaned, having the layer of fat and stuff still on it) in half and place it in a deep glass casserole dish. (Your casserole dish must be slightly larger than the length of your strap halves and slightly wider than the two halves.) Cover the two halves with coke and place it in the refrigerator for a minimum of two hours but no longer than eight. Remove soaked straps from refrigerator and drain all but one third of the coke from the dish. Slowly combine orange juice and brown sugar in a small bowl mixing to the approximate consistency of a good gravy. Drizzle mixture over straps (If your straps are completely cleaned drizzle it over what would have been the top, if not put it on the bottom). Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cook straps for 45 minutes to an hour remembering that venison is best served at medium rare.

*This recipe was told to me by a good friend who has won multiple grilling contests with this exact recipe. I used it the other day and was extremely pleased with the tenderness and honey glazed taste.

  • 2-3 Medium White Potatoes
  •  2-3 Medium Sweet Potatoes

Directions  

Place the Venison Cubes in Crock Pot. Mash the Garlic and add to the meat. Add Basil, Oregano, Parsley, Red Wine and enough water to cover. Turn on high for 2-4 hours. Peel and cut carrots into chunks and add to the Crock Pot. After another 2-3 hours, wash and chop the Celery into chunks and add to the Crock Pot.

Cook for an additional 45-minute to an hour (until the onion becomes translucent). After adding the Onion, peel cut up and cook the Potatoes in boiling water (Cooking the potatoes separately keeps them from breaking up and dissolving into the stew).

34. Oven-Qued Venison Loin Chops

Posted By: Gary Makely  

Ingredients

  • 4-5 lbs Venison Loin (Also works well with Round Steak or London Broil)  
  • 1/2 cup Hot sauce (optional)  
  • 1/2 Cup Burgundy Wine  
  • 1 Medium Onion (finely chopped or 1 tsp powder)  
  • 2 Cloves Garlic (minced 0r 1/4 tsp powder) 
  • 1 bottle Your favorite Bar-B-Que Sauce  
  • 1 stick Butter (optional if beef is used)  
  • Cajun Seasoning  
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions  

Take Venison Loin pieces and remove any viable fat and connecting tissue. Slice the loin into 1" thick chops (this step not necessary with steak or London broil). Rub generously with the Cajun Seasoning, Salt and Pepper and put in a Ziploc bag. Add the Hot Sauce, Wine, finely chopped Onion and minced Garlic (If you are not using the Hot Sauce, use 1/2 cup Bar-B-Que Sauce). Shake vigorously to evenly coat all pieces. Put the bag in the refrigerator overnight. Next morning, shake the bag to mix it up. Return to refrigerator until ready to cook.

In a large oven proof pan lay out the pieces of meat in a single layer and pour the marinade over the top. Cut butter up into small pieces and distribute evenly over pieces of meat. Pour Bar-B-Que sauce over the meat, cover it with foil and place in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes to an hour depending on how well done you like your meat — if you like your meat "falling apart" you can leave it even longer (we like our meat rare so it doesn't take long). Remove the pan from the oven, remove the foil and turn the pieces over. Place the pan back under the broiler for 5-10 minutes until the meat starts to brown. Serve.  

You can also use this same recipe on your grill. Just place the pan in your grill on medium heat for 30-60 minutes and when you take the foil off, instead of putting it under the broiler, just place the pieces directly on the grill for 2-3 minutes. Brush with juices from the pan, turn and let cook for a few more minutes. Serve.

40. Marinated Deer Steaks

Posted By: Mike Mooney

Ingredients

  • Soy Sauce  
  • Worcestershire Sauce  
  • White Vinegar  
  • Deer Steaks (preferably butterflied from backstrap)

Directions  

Take deer steaks and marinate in mixture of soy sauce, Worcestershire and vinegar. Take it easy with the vinegar — it works great as a tenderizer, but too much creates too strong a flavor. Never marinate in a metal bowl as the acid in the vinegar can react with the metal for bad tastes. Marinate for approximately 2 hours if steaks are 1/2- to 3/4-inch thick. Marinating too long can make the meat "mushy" in consistency. Grill on the grill to your desired "doneness" — but why would you dare go past medium-rare? Enjoy with a cold beverage and a baked potato.


41. Louisiana's Best (Deer Grilliads)
