Cook slowly at 325 degrees for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until meat is tender. When ready to serve, sauté mushrooms and onions. Distribute evenly over meat. Serve with mashed potatoes, noodles or rice.

1 (4 to 6 lb.) bone-in shoulder of venison
Melted butter
Salt
Black pepper
1/2 tsp. dried marjoram or thyme leaves, more if desired
4 slices farm-style bacon
About 1 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove shoulder bone from the venison and wipe the meat dry. Then pour the butter over all the meat, including in and around the bone cavity, rubbing it in well. Salt and pepper generously on all sides and in any pockets or folds of meat. Roll the marjoram or thyme leaves between your finger and thumb to pulverize, then sprinkle evenly over the meat. Roll the meat together and tie in tightly and evenly with a strong kitchen twine to form a compact roast. Add about 1 cup water to the bottom of the pan. (Note: Venison should be cooked only until JUST DONE; the muscle fibers will toughen if overcooked. To test for doneness, pierce thickest part of meat with a long-tined fork, and wait a few seconds to see if juices run clear; if they do, the meat is done.) Remove from oven, let meat set 15 minutes before serving. Cut the string away and slice into 1/2 inch thick slices. Serve immediately.

VENISON STEAK AU POIVRE
4 individual size steaks 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick
2 tbsp. whole black peppercorns
4 tbsp. butter
Flour
1 tbsp. chives
4 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup cognac or brandy
1/2 cup beef stock
1 tbsp. lemon juice

Unless you have very tender cuts of meat, I tenderize each steak by sprinkling with an unseasoned meat tenderizer then pricking with a fork or use one of the handy new hand tenderizers with tiny blades. Crush peppercorns coarsely in mortar-pestle. Divide equally among the steaks and press as much as you can with the heel of your hand into both sides of the meat. Cream butter until very soft and spread over one side of the pepper encrusted meat. Place meat buttered side down on generously floured waxed paper then butter the other side and dust generously with flour. Refrigerate for at least an hour, preferably longer to mellow the pepper. Heat olive oil until it begins to smoke. Sauté prepared meat until nicely browned, a minute or so on each side. Add beef stock, lower heat to medium and cook to desired doneness. Remove meat to platter and keep warm. To pan juices add the cognac and bring to full boil for one or two minutes then add lemon juice, chives and salt lightly. When thoroughly heated pour over steak and serve. Especially good with fluffy rice.

Deer Pot Pie
1 pound of deer steak, cubed
1 can corn
1 can of peas
1 medium onion
1 packet of brown gravy mix
graded cheese, what ever you like
salt, pepper
self rising flour,
butter milk
oil

In a cooking pot brown the deer meat in some oil, then add water to cover the meat. Cook until meat is tender, you may have to add more water to get it done. Cut up the onion and add it to the meat, then add corn, carrots, peas, or what ever other veggies you like. Now add the gravy mix to the other ingredients and mix well. Let mix simmer while you make the crust. In a large bowl mix up some biscuit dough using self-rising flour, buttermilk, oil, and salt. Roll out the dough on a sheet of wax paper; roll out until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Dough should be dry, and not stick to your fingers. Make the dough a few inches larger than your baking dish, spray the baking dish with some Pam cooking spray, and flour the bottom. Lay your dough in the bottom of the pan, make sure it comes to the top all the way around the dish. Pour your deer-veggie mix in on top of dough and spread out evenly. Put your graded cheese over top of the filling, use as much as you like. I like cheese so I use a lot. Make another batch of dough to use for the crust. Make it the same as the first, and put it on top of the filling. Poke some holes in the top with a fork, and spray the top with Pam or butter, and bake in the oven at 350 until the top is golden brown. Let it cool for about 15 min, and eat up.

Add masa mixture and simmer another 20 minutes. (Masa mixture will "tighten" the flavor!)

Deer Chili
2 lb ground meat
2 table spoons shortening
11/2 tea spoons salt
4 table spoons chili powder
2 16oz tomato sauce
2 cup water
1 table spoon sugar

2 to 3 lbs. venison cut up for stew
2 packages Beef Stew Seasoning (McCormick or other
brand)
1 cup Marsala Cooking Wine
4 to 6 carrots
4 stalks celery
2 small onions or 1 big un
1 to 2 bell peppers
4 to 6 potatoes
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can cream style corn
water

Brown the meat in oil. While browning, mix seasoning, cooking wine, & water...simmer. When meat is browned (slightly), drain & add to pot with simmering stuff. Cut up the carrots & add them. Cut up the celery, onions, bell peppers & add them. Add the stewed tomatoes & cream style corn Cut up potatoes & add them. (It's important to add the veggies in this
order...when the potatoes are just right, the stew is done!)

Venison Stew (Beef Gravy)
1-2 lb venison
1 envelope beef stew mix
Salt
Pepper
Garlic powder
Quartered potatoes
Carrots (sliced 1 inch thick)
Sliced onion

Mix pack of stew mix with 1 cup water in crock pot, stir, heat on high, add all other ingredients, turn heat to low and cook 5-6 hours until meat falls apart.

Jerky
Marinate approx. 10 lbs of venison or beef (I use round steak) strips overnight in a pan with the
following ingredients:
(approx. 10 lbs. meat)
2 Bottles Dale's Seasoning {If you can't find Dale's at the grocery, try http://www.dalesseasoning.com/ }
2 bottles liquid smoke {I use mesquite}
1/2 cup (or more) course ground Malabar Black Pepper

I use dehydrator with 8 trays for recommended time.
This stuff will make you slap yo' Momma....

Deer Jerky
3-5 lbs meat cut in thin strips
1/2c worstershire sauce
1/2c soy sauce (mee-Tu brand is the best, I buy this by the case from Allied Old English 1-732-636-2060)
2 tsp seasoning salt
2tsp accent
3/4 black pepper
3/4 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried hot peppers

mix over meat soak for 8-10 hours overnight is best
put in dehydrator or oven on a screened rack bake at 150 until it is at your taste of crispyness

Jerky
3/4 Cup of Worchestire Sauce
1 Cup Yoshidas Steak Seasoning Sauce..(Only place I can find it at is Sam’s Club)
1 Tablespoon Montreal Steak Seasoning Spice
1/2 Tablespoon Salt
1/2 Tablespoon Garlic Salt...
Marinate it only 30 min. to an hour and through it in.
Don't overdo the Worchestire Sauce...It will make your jerky real salty if you do. Wor. Sauce has a lot of salt inside.

Venison Jerky
2 ½ -3 ½ lb. Venison Roast (Trimmed and cut into strips)
¾ cup Worcestershire Sauce
¾ cup Soy Sauce or Teriyaki
½ cup Brown Sugar
¼ cup White Wine
¼ cup Honey
3 Medium Cloves Fresh Garlic
2 tbsp. Chili Garlic Sauce

2 tsp. Liquid Smoke
1 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Cayenne (Red) Pepper
Combine all ingredients and marinate overnight. Dry in Dehydrator or oven on low temperature until dry. Sprinkle Coarse Ground Black Pepper just prior to drying. (I prefer using Soy over Teriyaki sauce; it just seems to be better)
Deer Jerky
3lbs of lean venison
1 to 2 teaspoons of pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon onion powder
¼ cup Soy sauce
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1 tablespoon prepared mustard

Cut venison into ½” to ¼” thick strips mix all other ingredients together and pour over meat. Marinate overnight then remove from marinade and dry with paper towel. Dry in oven until dry at 200 degrees about 12 hours. Or place in dehydrator for about 12 to 14 hours depending on thickness of meat.
Jerky, Venison
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup Worcestershire
4 tsp accent
4 tsp salt (canning salt)
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
4 tsp onion powder (too expensive)
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
4 tsp Tabasco sauce
1/3 bottle liquid smoke
Shaker of cayenne pepper

Mix ingredients to make brine.

Trim fat off meat. Slice meat about 1/4 inch thick.
Make enough brine to cover the meat. Place sliced meat in the brine, place in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours (turning once or twice). Three days is better. Remove meat and do not rinse. Lay on paper towels, shake cayenne pepper on top of meat. Put in dehydrator until done: (about 6 hours) shuffle trays after about 2-3 hours. Check outside pieces for being done and move inside pieces to outside of tray.(onion powder is expensive so i use about 1 tsp instead

The Best Venison Jerky
1/2 Venison Ham, well trimmed
1/3 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Non-Iodized Salt
2 Cups Soy Sauce
1 Cup Water
11/2 Cup Apple Juice Concentrate (1 12oz can)
1/2 tsp. Garlic Salt
1/2 tsp. Onion Salt
1 T. Coarse Ground Pepper
l tsp. Liquid Smoke

Slice meat with the grain into 1/4-to 1/2-inch slices. Reserve pepper except for 1/2 tsp., which will be used immediately in combining ingredients. Except for meat, combine all ingredients including the 1/2 tsp. pepper, in a large glass or plastic container.
Mix well. Add meat to mixture and let stand for 8-10 hrs in the frig. After meat has marinated, remove from container to dry. Spread paper towels over newspapers and lay meat slices on them. Use remaining pepper to season to your taste. (You can also sprinkle a small amount of cayenne pepper on the meat if you want it hot). Next, being careful not to lose too much pepper, lay meat on oven grates (or put in a dehydrator). Allow meat to dry at 150 degrees for 4-8 hrs, checking every 2 hrs to determine if the drying process is done. If using a dehydrator, move trays from bottom to top every couple hours. Keep refrigerated unless jerky is very dry (I take mine off when it is still chewy. "Happy Eating"
Canned Venison
You will need a good pressure Canner,
Pint or Quart Size Canning Jars (personal preference) I always use the Quarts.
New Lids and Rings for the jars.
DO NOT USE MAYO JARS, THEY ARE GOOD FOR TOMATOES AND PICKLES ONLY !! (They will break.)
Make sure that the jars have no nicks or cracks around the rims.

If you do this you are probably processing your own deer. So what you aren’t going to use for roasts, steaks, etc. Cube as you do for stew meat.
Pack into sterilized jars to about 1 inch from the top, pack pretty tightly.
Put1/4 tsp.salt per pint / 1/2 to 1 tsp.salt per quart. Do not add any liquid.
I sometimes put a clove or two of garlic in, just depend on my mood at the time.
Process at 10 lbs. pressure for 70-75 minutes.
Above 2000 ft. use 15 lbs. pressure.
Follow the directions of your canner for bringing it up to pressure, cooling etc.
If you haven't tried it I'll guarantee you will like it.

Venison Marinade
3 Tbs minced yellow onion
1 1/2 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs olive oil
1/2 to 1 tsp thyme(If you have access to fresh its much better)
big pinch pepper or drops of Tabasco
juice of 1/2 lemon or lime.

Score steaks on both sides place in lg. freezer bag with marinade and put in frig for 12-24 hrs.
Grill, Broil, or pan fry to desired doneness.

NTTF:

What does the abbreviation "c." stand for in your ingredients? Is it for Centilitre, or how much is it?

Not my recipe, this was poached from Antonio Carluccio when he appeared on Saturday kitchen (my bird makes me watch it alright!). A little extravagant with the morels I know but you can even buy them on ebay these days and they're worth every penny if you value a good scran! I couldn't find fresh porcini mushrooms myself so I substituted them with chestnut mushrooms and made a creamy wholegrain mustard mash to go with the venison. Enjoy!


Ingredients
For the venison
500g/1lb 2oz venison fillet, trimmed and cut into 2.5cm/1in thick medallions
5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 carrot, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the sauce
100g/3½oz unsalted butter
2 small onions, very finely sliced
40g/1½oz dried morels, soaked in warm water for 2 hours, drained (reserve the water)
150g/5oz fresh porcini mushrooms, thickly sliced
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (aged for 10-15 years)
4 tbsp dry sherry
6 tbsp double cream
salt and freshly ground black pepper


Method
1. For the venison, the day before cooking, place the venison in a dish and cover with three tablespoons of the olive oil, and all of the balsamic vinegar, carrot and onion. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and place into the fridge to marinate overnight.
2. For the sauce, heat a non-reactive frying pan until hot. Add the butter and onions and fry the onion for 2-3 minutes, until softened.
3. Add the morels and cook for 10 minutes.
4. Add the porcini and fry for a further 3-5 minutes.
5. Add the balsamic vinegar, sherry and cream and simmer for 10 minutes. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper. (The sauce may become quite thick, so add a little of the morel soaking water to the pan.)
6. To cook the venison, remove the venison from the marinade, pat dry with kitchen paper, then season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
7. Heat a separate frying pan until hot. Add the remaining two tablespoons of olive oil and the venison steaks. Fry the venison on each side for 3-4 minutes, until golden-brown on the outside, but still pink on the inside, or until cooked to your liking.
9. To serve, spoon the mushroom sauce onto warmed plates, then top with the venison steaks.

Our younger daughter bought me a tagine ( a Moroccan clay cooking pot) last year.

Usually I cook a lamb 1/2 shoulder in it, but having some stewing venison handy, I tried that today.

Here's how.

Peel and chop a couple of sweet potatoes and lay in the base of the tagine.
Lay a sliced onion, a couple of chopped carrots, a piece of chopped ginger-root, a couple of crushed garlic cloves and a stick of chopped celery on top of the potato.
Cut the venison into large chunks, dredge it in a dessert spoon of Moroccan spice (available from Sainsburys, Waitrose, Morrisons etc) and lay it on top of the veg.
Sloosh a good glug of olive oil over it all, add a tin of chopped tomatoes (or if you've got some over-ripe fresh ones, even better)
Tuck a few dried apricots and prunes in around the meat and add some herbes de provence and olives if you want.

Put the lid on the tagine and stick it in a cold oven - switching it on to 150 degrees C and go out shooting for 2-3 hours.

When you return the house will smell spicely fragrant, and the venison will be meltingly tender (if it isn't, add a little warm water to the tagine and leave it cooking for another hour or so).

If you want to be really authentic you can add a chopped preserved lemon to the recipe (I don't like them).

It's a one-dish meal - so all I added to it was a little chopped fresh coriander and parsley and took it to the table to serve.

If you omit the sweet potato you can serve this with cous-cous or rice - but then you've got the faff of cooking that as well
