Cooking. Venison can be a delicious change of pace from the beef, chicken, pork routine or it can be like eating Lutherís boot. The key is understanding that venison is a naturally lean meat. It has very little fat cover and what it does have, does not contribute to the flavor of the meat. When preparing venison for cooking, as much fat, tallow and silver skin as possible should be trimmed off. Since venison has very little fat itself, your recipe should provide some replacement to enhance the flavor. Butter, bacon strips, cheese and even larding with beef fat will help. Donít overcook venison.
| Venison steaks and roasts have a better flavor when they are still pink inside. Try different seasonings, marinades and sauces to compliment venisonís natural flavor. Also, choose a method of cooking that adds moisture back to the meat. Simmering in a sauce, frequent basting, and slow cooking in a crock-pot are examples of how to keep your venison from drying out.|
