How to Cook Ground Deer Meat



   Deer meat is lower in fat and cholesterol than other red meats.  It also has a higher amount of Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and the Omega 3 fatty acids.

      I know a lot of people who refuse to eat deer meat because they say it tastes too “gamey” and it’s true it can taste that way but if you prepare it correctly, you can keep the majority of the gamey taste away. 

     The first thing you need to keep in mind is that venison (deer meat) is very lean and does not have the “marbling” of fat that beef does.  I fix this problem by adding a really decent amount of olive oil to the meat.  

    I have found the best way to cook ground venison is low and slow.  I just place 2 pounds of the ground venison into a pot on low heat.   I then add in 2 tablespoons of olive oil per pound of deer meat and a teaspoon of lemon juice per pound also.   Citrus tends to help mask the strong flavor of the deer meat.

   To also help with the taste, I add in a tablespoon of dehydrated onions and a ½ teaspoon of garlic powder per pound of meat.

Cook the meat on low heat, stirring as you brown the meat.

     Once it is done, I divide up the meat into baggies and freeze it until you are ready to use it as I would ground beef.   I love using venison in my delicious No-Bean Chili Recipe

  1. We have always used it 1/2 and 1/2 with ground beef! It's great for chili or spaghetti.

    1. When we make chili we use 2 ground venison with 2.5 lb ground beef and 1.5-2 lb ground pork. Sometimes we use venison sausage if we are out of ground venison.

  2. We add some beef fat to our ground venison when we process it - that helps a lot to make it more like ground beef.
    Great pointers! Just found you at the Tuesdays with a Twist Link up!

  3. We grind our own deer meat and use suet from our cow that we butcher. Works great. Found you on Blogger's Pit Stop Link Party.
