A Roundup of 6 Easy Venison Recipes

The most common issue when cooking venison is its strong wild taste that many people can’t stand. Some will suggest soaking the meat in milk to remove the flavour but from my experience, that’s useless.


Instead, here are some tips as well as easy recipes to cook 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:

  • Soak the meat in salted water (or marinades of vinegar or wine with heavier flavors of garlic or soy) to get rid of blood from it
  • Trim fat from game meats
  • Serve venison with spicy sauces as condiments
