I put a few venison necks in the Instapot and pressure cooked them for 40 minutes this season.  The resulting "shredded venison" is to die for.  Not as good as tenderloin or back straps, but it is up there.  We use the shredded meat for pulled venison sammiches, add some to a chili, shredded venison nachos, pizza - etc.  Always a hit.

If you put neck roast in smoker for about, 4 hrs. Then take an aluminum tray with mushrooms and onions (add green peppers if you like) and a little beef broth salt,  pepper, and garlic. Put roast on top and wrap in foil. Back insmoker or oven for a few more hours. Result: best steak and cheese sandwich ever.

I have not ground the neck into burger since doing this.

You add any kind of seasoning or just keep it plain ?

I just add a couple cups of water and a single habanero pepper.   That pepper gives the meat just enough kick - and then whatever dish we make with the shredded meat is spiced accordingly.  We are having quesadillas with it tonight!

Last fall a hunter shot a buck on the property just east of us, it wandered west and fell on our property.
I was home that morning(weekday) when he knocked on the door about 7:30 am, all dressed in camo and with a crossbow on his back. He asked if he could come on the property to retrieve the buck, obviously I said yes.
So we went to where the buck dropped, only about twenty yards on to our property and luckily a spot he easily could drive to.

I have a German short hair pointer so when he asked about working on it on the property I said no since it was only about 100 yards from the house. Also a bunch of bears in the area.  So the 2 of us put it in the bed of his truck and he headed off to start working on it.

He left some frozen venison at our door a few days later.
I thawed some sirloin and ground venison recently. Sirloin was turned in to a Peruvian dish called Lomo Saltado, wife signed us up for a zoom cooking class. Iíd never heard of it.  I donít know anything about Peruvian food (I think they do ceviche  ??) and I was excited to try something new.

Recipe called for pound of beef, we made 2 versions one beef and one venison, both turned out excellent.

French fries can be tossed in with the stir fry, we put them on the side.
Sauce is basically red wine vinegar and soy sauce.

The first pound of ground venison was turned into a ragu for gnocchi.

Our second zoom class was for making gnocchi, but they didnít provide a sauce for the gnocchi. I was put in charge of saucing while the others made the gnocchi. Found a recipe for pork ragu with gnocchi online and I subbed in venison for the pork.


 Also made a lemon sauce as well, which was just thrown together with what was in the fridge.

Thank you.

The venison ragu sauce was preferred over the lemon sauce.
My son suggested fried perch with the lemon sauce version.
 :o
And now I really really want to target perch and catch some for frying.

my two favs are kabobs. (self explanatory) and smoked roasts.

the smoked roast is brined for a day ort two.  I make brine with garlic onion rosemary lots of salt(its a brine after all) pepper and some dales wild game marinade.  cool brine and submerge roast in it(easy and less brine if you use a ziplock bag)  put in fridge for 24-48 hours. turn 1 time if needed.  take out of fridge and brine an hour before smoking and drain.  smoke at 225-250 with mesquite chips.  use deg cooking probe and remove from smoker between 135- 144 internal temp.  let rest for 20 min. that parts hard.  slice and eat like roast beef. guaranteed pleaser! this works great on the three large hind muscles in a quarter.  the brine really pulls the gamy out. ( I do this with eye of round too and slice for hot dipped samiches. :P

one more great deer chew is fried.  I cut 1" cubes and marinate in your favorite (mine is dales again) juices over night.  drain and shaker in your favorite coating.  I like famous andys or just seasoned flour. fry hot n fast until you get that browned crust from the flour.  kinda a country fried chunks snack.  nothing wrong with steaks done this way either!

great grub all keep it coming.
real fishermen don't ask where you caught them.

That's some next level stuff guys! Love to see the creativity.

I cook plenty of venison dishes every year. I don't think I have any pictures to share but I will offer a few things I've learned about cooking venison over the years:

1. Meat from the shoulders tends to be tougher and stronger in flavor. This meat is best when stewed or slow cooked.

2. Meat from the hind quarters often tastes best when cooked medium rare or medium. If fully cooked, it tends to be tough and gamey.

(Items 1 and 2 also apply to beef, pork and lamb as well)

3. For tenderloins, backstraps and hind quarter cuts, grill it or cook it on a cast iron pan. Serve medium rare like a good steak or London broil.

4. Fresh garlic, rosemary, thyme, fresh cracked black pepper, Kosher salt and juniper berries are my go-to spices for any venison dish.

5. Use enough spice to accentuate the flavor of the meat but don't overdo it. Too much spice can hide the flavor of the meat which defeats the purpose entirely.

6. Wanna make something that will be a big hit at next summer's picnic or barbecue? Venison kebabs! Marinate pieces in a combination of olive oil, pressed garlic, black pepper and rosemary for 30 minutes prior to cooking. Cook to medium rare (about 10-15 minutes total) and shake a tiny bit of Kosher salt or sea salt on the kebabs before serving. Cook meat and veggies separately on different skewers -veggies take longer. If cooked together, meat will be overcooked and veggies will be undercooked. I like to pair my venison kebabs with veggie kebabs that include mushrooms, pearl onions, squash and red peppers. Use the same marinade for the veggies.

Keep those pictures and recipes coming!

I guess I have to get on this thread. I will preface by saying I suck at whitetail hunting, in the NE (or in general), but, I have had a crapload of fun working with the protein, recently.

From chili, to Bolognese, to my personal variant on  Shepherdís Pie, itís been youíre imagination-is-the-limit. I have erased many of my preparations, but I discovered a back-log of veni-shep-pie I had not. Pics to follow.

In fairness, I am one to introduce/cut-in smaller amounts of fattier meats. Always. Because I like fat. And, I have found, with the GIANT FLAVOR of those mothereffing OLD AZZZ Bucks, that Frank takes, at will, the flavor of the meat does NOT get lost...

Anyway -

I prefer to mix stew meat with burger in any of these preparations. For the toothesome effect. I am not afraid to cut in smaller amounts of fattier ground pork, or in the case of a Bolognese to drop in a scheit-load of pancetta. In Chile I have started with raw chorizo for a fatty agent. Never once had any of it ďlostĒ the integrity of the primary protein - venison. But like I said..

Back strap is entirely different discussion.

Heart? I want it. Baaaaaadly.

I will prepare a backstrap medallion Steak Au Poivre, next, with cognacc cream, shallots, green peepercorns, and veal stock.

And mushrooms. Or truffles. Wild fresh morels would be ideal, but wonít see those till spring. Honest black truffles? I donít have the coin. Still, I will make an incredible cast-iron preparation. And ye shall seee.
