How to get rid of that strong wild taste of venison?
Actually, my go-to method to avoid the strong wild taste of venison is going out and shooting “bambi” instead of the old deer. Since the older the deer, the stronger the taste.
However, if you’ve already got your prize on hands and it is an old one, here are some of my secrets to remove that unpleasant issue:
4 Easy (but flavorful) venison recipes
- Venison steaks
Step 1: Mix onion salt, garlic salt, and seasoning mix in a small bowl
Step 2: Coat this mixture on the whole steak
Step 3: Melt fully the butter in a skillet over medium heat and drop the seasoned steak into it. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side
Step 4: Grill the steak on medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes each side
Step 5: Add pepper on to the meat. Let it sit for a while before ready to serve.
Tips: It’s best to eat with steak sauce or BBQ sauce.
If you are also looking for a good small grill to use during the hunting or camping trips, here are some good propane grills to go.
- Venison skillet with stewed tomato
Step 1: Place venison burger in a skillet and brown it until done. Then, add drained, stewed tomatoes and heat through until it becomes sauce
Step 2: Stir in the macaroni
Step 3: Add the sauce and stir well until the meat is entirely mixed and heated through
Tips: It’s best to serve with a hot pan of cornbread
- Venison Recipes with brown gravy and noodles
Step 1: Cut steaks into itty-bitty pieces
Step 2: Heat the low-fat cooking spray in a skillet. Then, add venison pieces and cook until done.
Step 3: Pour water in a separate bowl, then, add brow gravy in.
Step 4: Add this mixture into the skillet, stir well with “drippings” in the pan. Let it heat through. Then, add venison steak pieces and keep cooking until the whole mixture is well-heated through
Step 5: Spoon over the cooked noodles and add pepper & salt for more flavorful taste
Tips: Try not to overcook the meat nor seasoning it with salt because this spice will draw out the juice from the flesh.
- Venison cooked with mushroom gravy
Step 1: Cut the venison steak into bite-sized pieces, then, add them into a skillet that’s already heated with cooking spray. After done, remove them from the skillet.
Step 2: Add ½ can of soup milk into a separate bowl and then, the mushroom soup cream. Blend well with a whisk.
Step 3: Pour this mixture into the skillet and well-mix with the “drippings” in it.
Step 4: Add venison pieces. Keep the cook until it’s completely heated through
Step 5: Spoon the mixture over cooked rice and add pepper & salt to serve
Above are my most favorite venison recipes that my wife and kids all enjoy. Of course, I do fix them every now and then, like using good old-fashioned white gravy or in place with some mashed potatoes. You can create your own venison burger recipes which can’t be easier to try. Cook up and enjoy!
