  •  And venison is a high-quality red meat. (4+ / 0-)

    It is very lean.  Roasts are delicious.  The backstrap, if left intact, can be cored and stuffed with lobster or crab if you are near the coast.  You could also stuff it with a rice-spinach mixture.  A mixture of black cherries, raspberry vinegar and guava paste makes a out-of-this world marinade.  Coating the meat in walnut oil enhances the flavor.

    Venison, like all other game, needs to be well-done.  That does not mean turned into shoe-leather.  Hence the value of marinades and oils, or roasting an initial 15 minutes at high temperature to seal in juices, then finishing at a lower temperature.  Grinding venison and browning the meat for chili also works well.  Venison chili is fantastic!

    Off-topic, but still useful information for hunters and those who use meat-locker donated game for their dogs:  saving intact organ meats from deer is a good treat for your dogs, but again it must be cooked to a well-done temperature.  Do not feed undercooked or raw venison to your dogs, as you risk parasitic infection.  I attended a breed-enthusiast lecture on seizure disorders, and the veterinary neurosurgeon/neurologist said that one cause of seizuring in dogs that is 100% preventable is the feeding of raw and undercooked game -- parasites have been known to migrate into the brain via the bloodstream and grow there, putting pressure on the brain and causing seizures.
