    My neighbor gave us 14 lbs. of ground deer meat. I've already made several recipes with it. But I need something different. ANy recipes would be appreciated.

    I have NO idea!? LOL

    I've never had deer. However, I will suggest with thanksgiving coming that you make a spicy sausage of deer and mix it with your stuffing to stuff your turkey?! Throw in some cranberries?! Very fall recipe!

    honeydoll, I use it just as I would use ground beef in ANY recipe. Soups, casseroles, chili, tacos etc.. We have had deer meat in our diet for soooo long that beef sometimes taste 'different'. If it has a gamey taste just find recipes that use a lot of seasoning (chili) otherwise it is just a leaner form of beef. [​IMG]

    If it is 100% venison, you may not be able to make patties with it because the lack of fat in it.

    I hope someone replies to this. We bought some venison recently. Besides the ground venison, we also have tenderloins and steaks. We already cooked the steaks and they were delicious. I know it's really low in fat and have heard that it is dry and would probably need some other kind of ground meat added. We are thinking of using some hot italian sausage mixed in with the ground venison. Removing the casing and mixing it in and making a meat loaf maybe. We haven't tried it yet, so don't know if it would work.
    It might be all right by itself in a meat loaf. I've thrown in a handful of rolled oats when mixing the meatloaf and it does seem to keep it moist.

    When we grind our venison, we don't add any other meat, most people add pork. when I cook it, I jsut brown it in bacon fat, and then use as I would ground beef in any other recipe, ie spaghetti, tacos, meatloaf etc(when making maeatloaf, obviously I don't brown it first.)

    Thanks for the replies. I use it in place of beef as well but I was hoping for something a little diff. We love deer meat, it is 100% deer meat so I figured making burgers would probably not be a good idea. Maybe a good deer meatloaf recipe or something.

    Venison tenderloin is the absolute best meat in the entire world. I'm drooling just thinking about it. But, yeah, as someone else said, any recipe that calls for ground beef/turkey can pretty much be substituted for veni.
  9. You can make anything out of ground deer meat as you would with beef or pork or turkey. My SMIL has made spagetti with grounded deer meat [​IMG] even MEAT LOAF [​IMG] [​IMG]
