Don't get me wrong - venison is OK. But now we've got one butchered and in the freezer and I'm sure the first of December there will be another one. As far as I'm concerned, you can take out the tenderloin and throw the rest away. Cook it sliced up in bacon fat, make a nice gravy with the fat, stock and cream - oh, yeah. Anyway, it's become so boring - deer steaks, deer burgers, deer chili, deer jerkey (that's pretty good). I don't want to solicit hundreds of recipes, and I've seen a few listed in game recipes on a couple of web sites - but I'm just curious if anyone has a venison recipe that is way out of the ordinary - not part of the above list, or a stew or anything like that. Something creative? Anyone? -- The Doc says my brain waves closely match those of a crazed ferret. At least now I have an excuse.
