Anyone in your family a hunter? My Husband didn’t shoot anything this year, but a friend of ours got a buck and gave it to my father-in-law who was nice enough to process it and share with us! I did not grow up eating venison. (In fact, the one time I do remember having it, we all went to McDonalds instead of eating it! HA!) Now… there is no way I am turning down any kind of meat! (We eat a LOT of meat in this family!)
If you love venison, try my Hearty & Delicious Venison Stew!
The last few years I have been trying my hand at different recipes, looking for ways to mask any “game-y” taste. My favorite recipe is Venison Meatloaf! You will not believe how fantastic this amazing meatloaf is! One of the great things about venison is that it is so lean. This is the best meatloaf I make! (I know the term “Meatloaf” can sound quite disgusting, but don’t knock it until you try it!)
Start with finely diced Onion, Oatmeal, and ground Venison in a big bowl.
Bake at 375˚ for an hour. (Try not to go batty while smelling this wonderfulness cooking!)
1 lb. ground Venison
1 C. Quick Oats
1 small Onion, finely diced
1/2 C. Ketchup
3 Tbsp Mustard
2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tsp Tabasco
1/3 C. Brown Sugar
3/4 C. Milk
1/4 Tsp Seasoning Salt
1/4 Tsp Garlic Powder
Combine ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Dump onto greased baking sheet. Form into a long loaf. Squirt extra ketchup all over top of loaf. Bake at 375˚ for 1 hr. ENJOY!
