Wild Game Recipes

Updated on March 20, 2010

Wild game recipes

 Now that the big game hunting season is over,I have to start eating all these wonderful and delicious Deer recipes.

It was a good hunting season with three nice whitetail bucks put in the freezer.

One made into garlic pepperoni sticks.

One made into smoked garlic links.

One made into sausage rolls.

All are very delicious cold or cooked with a variety of recipes.

Elk chops

With the onslaught of big game season approaching very rapidly,my mouth is starting to water for some delicious Elk chops or Venison,it doesn't matter to me for I will eat either one.

So here I have added a few of thousands of wild game recipes to your bbq pit cooking.

Seared Elk Chops


4 tsp.crushed peppercorns


8 pieces elk chops

3 Tbsp.olive oil

2 minced shallots

1/2 cup brandy

1 cup beef broth

2 cups cream


1.preheat a large saute-pan over medium heat

2.Season the chops on both sides with salt,and sprinkle both sides with peppercorns pressing into meat.

3.Add the olive oil to the preheated pan and place the chop flat to get a good sear.

Cook the chops 3 minutes per side for medium rare to medium.

Remove the cooked chops from pan and let rest while preparing the sauce.

4.In the same pan ,turn the heat to medium high and add the shallots and saute for 1 minute.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the brandy.

Return the pan to the heat,being careful as the brandy will catch on fire.

Once the alcohol burns off ,add the beef broth and reduce by half,about 2 minutes.

Add the cream and reduce by half,around 3 minutes,or until the sauce coats the back of a wooden spoon.

The meat should be slightly pink in the center and quite moist.

Serve on a platter with Blackberry Sauce.

Serves 2 to 4.

Grilled Duck

Something to take the place of chicken;(DUCK)

Slice duck in half;

Marinate with a few onions overnight in your favorite marinade.A hickory or misquite are mine and helps the taste of duck real well.

Place your duck on a charcoal or gas grill and cook at medium for around 10 minutes per side.

DO NOT OVERCOOK.When it turns pink it is just right.

I also baste with honey if I am useing a rotiserie.

Remove duck and slice the onions over the top and begin your feast.

      Wow, lots going on here. You know, you could probably split these recipes into individual hubs of their own, cross-link them, and get better traffic/revenue if you care about that kind of thing. I was hoping to find a recipe for venison tenderloin medallions I have in the freezer. I wish now that I'd left it in one piece! Voted up and useful.

      There is nothing better to eat than a meal of the game you harvested while setting beside a camp fire.
