    Still loving my Vortex! Tonight I decided to do some Venison Round Steaks from an Axis Doe I shot last fall. I first marinated (EVOO, Soy Sauce, Worcestershire, lemon, Garlic, Pepper, Thyme & Parsley) the venison for about 7 hours. I made a "butter topper" with butter, garlic, and...

    Bacon wrapped tenderloin

    Son got his first deer this year and so far it has been excellent. Did a bacon wrapped tenderloin last night. Every bit as good as the filet I cooked for my wife. Slowly working on her resistance to deer meat…ha ha.

    Cure for Venison Bologna

    Venison Triple Threat... Meatloaf, Armadillo Eggs, and a Fatty

    I recently cooked up a few different meals and since they are all Venison Based I figured I'd lump them into one thread. Some quick cliff notes: The Meatloaf - A friend on another forum planted the idea for trying to make "meatloaf, a bag of chips, and a PBR look fancy". I had to give it...

    This is my first attempt at venison summer sausage. Got the meat, spices and cure mixed. Wrapped it in plastic stuck in the fridge. Recipe called for letting it sit for 12-24 hours. I'm using Anthony's Pink Curing Salt #1. Problem is, it looks like work is going to interfere with the timing...

    Good gosh, this time of the year can stress a person out. Work, Family, Hunting and Family/Friends, More Work, Holidays and Friends/Family and Lots More Work. And in-between all that chaos, confusion and contention, I gotta get some cooking time in to really relax. Still trying to make room...

    Jeff's Stuffed Meatballs - Venison

    These are directly from Jeff's Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Meatballs recipe. The only change I made was to use venison instead of beef. For the sausage, I used Jimmy Dean's hot sausage. The meatballs are slightly larger than Jeff's simply because I find them easier to stuff. Apple was my wood of...

    Summer Sausage - Vension & Cheese

    Time for some summer sausage. Maybe it would be more appropriately called Winter or Spring sausage given the time of the year. I haven't made this in a few years so with my venison party coming up in about a month I thought I would make a ten pound batch. Here is the mix with added high temp...
