Four Amazing Recipes for Venison


As hunting season comes to an end in most of the country, it is likely that you or someone you know has some deer meat already in the freezer. One nice sized buck can feed a family for at least a month. So, here are some unique recipes to try out.

2 cans of cream of mushroom soup

2 cups of beef broth

2 tablespoons of onion powder

1 cup of fresh mushrooms (preferable sliced)

5 tablespoons of dry onion soup mix

1 tablespoon of garlic powder

3-4 lbs of venison


Coat a large cooker with vegetable oil. Add in your soup, onion mix, broth, garlic, onion powder, and maybe some parsley. You will whisk it together until it becomes smooth.

Place the venison into the cooker and coat it with mixture. Cover and cook on high for five hours or until meat falls apart.

***It can also be cooked on low for eight hours, and if the meat is frozen, you can cook on high but for eight to ten hours.

*** Instead of a slow cooker you can bake it in the oven at 275 degrees for four to five hours, or again until tender.
