Delicious Deer

Deer steak. Deer sausage. After a successful fall hunt, a freezer of fresh and local meat is the reward. However, after a lucky hunting season which included 3 full deer in the freezer, I began to tire of deer steak and deer sausage. I got a little creative and made venison meatloaf, and sloppy does. Here are a few of my favorite recipes! 

Ginger Deer

  • 2lbs venison meat, cut into strips
  • 3/4cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs fresh minced garlic
  • 1/8 cup fresh minced ginger
  • 1 small white onion
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 2 small red peppers diced
  • 2 green onions
  • chili peppers as desired
  •  1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar 

In a bowl: 
- Add cornstach and slowly pour in water. Whisk in an egg. 
- Toss over meat

  • In a wok, add about 1/2 inch of oil of your choice (coconut butter or sesame oil add a nice flavour!) 
  • Heat on medium high and add meat.
  • Cook until brown, remove from pan and set aside. 
  • In frying pan, add garlic, ginger and vegetables. Cook on medium heat. when vegetables are almost done, add meat. 
  • In a bowl combine soy sauce, vinegar and sugar. Turn up heat on the walk and add sauce. Stir and scrape the bottom of the pan. 

Toss in green onion. Serve over a bed of rice.
