Deer meat recipes?

    I killed my first deer on my first hunting trip ever back in November and I don't really know how to cook it. My husband always wants me to dip it in a mixture of egg and milk and then in flour, salt, and pepper to fry it. I have a meatloaf recipe, but I don't own a meat grinder to try that out. I tried the recipe with ground chuck and it was pretty good. Here it is:

    Deer Meatloaf

    1 1/2 pounds ground veal
    1 large egg
    1/2 cup bread crumbs, a couple of handfuls
    1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
    4 to 6 sprigs fresh sage, thinly sliced
    Black pepper
    3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    combine veal with egg, bread crumbs, 1/2 cup cheese, sage, salt, and black pepper. Form 4 (1-inch thick) oval shaped meat loaves. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan. Brown meatloaves 2 to 3 minutes on each side then transfer to a nonstick baking sheet and finish in the oven, 6 to 8 minutes.

    My family is from Michigan and they say to cook it with TONS of onions to get the gamieness taste out of it. My husband's family is from Arkansas and they say to soak it in cold salt water. Both say to fry it though. This deer fed on corn for the most part, so it isn't gamie in the least. The property we hunt has huge corn feeders everywhere that are stocked year round. I like fried deer meat, but I'd like to try something different.

    Anyone have some recipes out there? Thanks :wavey:

    That sounds good. I'll have to try that soon. Thanks.
  4. Never been a fan of meatloaf but that does look like a good receipe. I perfer the simple county means of a 50/50 deer and ground chuck or pork, and one or 2 cans of chopped salsa mix wiht onions, cilantro and asiago cheese over rice.

    Easy and quick ;)

    I cook it like beef.

    I have fried it.
    I have grilled it.
    I like it a lot in pot roast.
    I brown it, then toss it in a pot with a can of golden mushroom soup and serve over rice and noodles.
    I make chilli.
    I make chunk chilli (chilli, but not ground meat, but chunk meat)
    I make fajitas.

    I treat it like beef, but I am careful not to over cook it.

    I have been canning mine, then making stuff like stew and stroganoff. I've been having great success in begging for venison.

    Cleaning and trimming the meat is the hard part. I just pack the trimmed meat raw in the jars. Pint jars work best. Then it's processed for a little over an hour for pints. I cook the ground beef and pack it into pints and cover with tomato sauce. Good for hamburger helper or something.
