Venison Pepper Steak

This isn't your normal pepper steak recipe, I've tried changing it many ways looking for a version that is family friendly so when you have company they don't even know they're eating deer meat. Many people don't like venison because they think it's to strong or gamey, I came up with this recipe for use on venison that could fit that bill. You know the buck that's been running hard chasing a hot doe, or a deer that took too long to find. Any deer that could be strong works great with this recipe, kids love it, so will your mother in law. If you don't want her hanging around you'd better cook something she won't like.

Hunters are always on the look out for some good venison recipes. Most of us will eat venison straight off the grill, morning or evening but finding something that some city folk might enjoy, is quite the chore. I don't usually don't tell guest that we substitute venison for beef, they seldom know the difference.

Venison Recipes

I have several different venison recipes, and there are a number of others available thru the outdoors community. There's nothing better than whitetail deer back straps, cooked up on the grill for dinner. However when, you eat deer a couple times a week, nothing beats a good variety of recipes.
