Tenderizing Deer Meat and Cutting Down on Wild Taste

Mix 1/2 cup vinegar and water. Soak meat in mixture for 2 hours. Rinse meat and cover with milk. Soak in milk at least 2 hours. I always leave mine in milk overnight. Great for frying steaks, makes them really tender. Prepare meat with salt, pepper and flour. We like onion powder added. Fry as you would tenderized steak.

1/2 c. stale bread crumbs
1 beaten egg

Water, if needed to make holding consistency

2 tblsp. sugar
1/2 c. sour cream
Worcestershire sauce
Salt & pepper
Celery salt

Cut venison into individual cutlets and roll in well seasoned flour. Melt butter in heavy skillet and brown cutlets on both sides over medium heat. When nicely browned, pour sour cream over cutlets and season with salt and pepper, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt and bay leaf. Cover skillet and cook about an hour on low heat or until tender.

Venison Goulash

8 oz. fat (lard or canned vegetable shortening)

Fry onions in fat until soft. Add cubed venison and brown on all sides. Sprinkle margarine and paprika over meat and cover with beef broth. Cover pot and simmer slowly 3 hours or until meat is tender, stirring often and from time to time adding more warm beef broth. Gravy should be sort of thick. Wide noodles are good with this gravy spooned over them.
