I'm going to let you in on one of my favorite SECRETS!

 Cooking with Venison!
We are a deer hunting family! I had NEVER eaten deer or even really known anyone that hunted till I met my hubby..... wow, has my world changed!

Anyway, cooking with venison is something that I struggled with at first..... I just couldn't get used to it and I thought it always tasted gamy..... well, not any more!!!! I learned the SECRET!

Secret to fantastic (you will never know it is venison) meat:
VINEGAR!!!!!!!!!! The acid totally takes away the game flavor! Period.... no more!
When I brown ground meat I simply add it while browning (I don't measure, but about 2 TBL per pound). When I make a roast I just always add vinegar to the cooking juices and I cook it in the crock pot.

I have also started canning deer meat.... talk about NO game flavor and a jar full of yummy!  I will have to post on that later!!

I like the vinegar idea. I didn't know.
I usually can it to take out the gamey flavor. Everyone loves canned venison.

Your family sounds like mine in regards to hunting. We eat a LOT of venison. I've never heard of the vinegar trick,but I will try it. Usually onions cut the gaminess as well and we love onions so it works out, lol. Thanks for the tip. I'll be trying it out very soon.

I just use/cook like beef,if anything I add a little extra fat,I just ground 15 pounds of moose with the meat grinder for my kitchen aid that my hubby got me for christmas,so easy,meat was 3/4 thawed,took no time at all, we are very maticulous when we ckean our game,it makes all the difference.
