Does anyone have any good recipes for venison (deer). Shot a few the other day, and would like your best recipes for a roast & back straps (scotch filet). I have a dry rub that is nice, but looking for something different.
We usually prepare stew with our venison. In Greece there is a recipe for wild game called Stefatho. Marinate with a white wine like Retsina the night before you cook the venison.
STEFATHO (BEEF STEW WITH ONIONS)
2 pounds stew beef
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups water
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
3 tablespoons vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cinnamon stick, optional
8 whole cloves
2 pounds small white onions, peeled
Trim fat from meat. In a large heavy kettle, heat oil and brown meat on all sides.
In a separate saucepan, mix water, tomato paste, vinegar, salt, pepper and garlic; bring to a boil. Pour over meat in kettle. Add cinnamon stick. Insert cloves into an onion and add to kettle. Cover and simmer 1 hour.
Add the remaining onions and simmer another hour or until onions are tender.
