Most people think you have to take the 'wild' taste out of deer. But really you can keep that good 'game' flavor by using a variety of herbs and spices.

Directions

  1. Slice venison roast into thick 1 inch steaks.
  2. In a saucepan, combine water, chicken broth, olive oil, butter, garlic, and hot sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and stir in vinegar. Season with parsley, basil, rosemary, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring regularly. Allow to cool.

I'm soooo disappointed! Disappointed that I wasn't able to partake in this recipe! I did all the preparation so all my husband had to do was throw his chops on the grill when he got home. He raved and said they were the best tasting vension chops I've ever made! My 3 yr old loved them too and so I guess I'm going to have to make them again when I can be around to have my fair share! Thanx!

Very good recipe- I liked it a lot. It did however erase ALL the gamey taste and that might be a problem for some. It still was delicious meat- just didn't really taste like deer anymore!

Great, "new" taste for venison. I used pounded backstrap rounds so it marinated and cooked much quicker. (30 min and 2 1/2 min/side) Very tender. Don't go overboard on the rosemary or vinager....needs some, but not too much.
