    Made some deer meatballs tonight to eat with spagetti. They came out pretty good. I used some of that sausage and pepper flavored "Newman's Own" sauce. The meatballs were probably a little too well done but I can reduce the cooking time a little next time.
    I think I might try deer meatballs and gravy for the next meal.

    My wife does not like venison, so I make deer meatballs separately and add them to only my pasta.:rolleyes:

    Now, I have I mentioned my brandy, butter and Worcestershire sauce recipe for pan cooking butterfly venison steaks?:)

    Right on!

    What about Swedish deer meatballs?

    I have an awesome Swedish meatball recipe
    Pretty much just meatballs and gravy with a lil sour cream mixed in with the meat and some mushrooms in the gravy

    Im not sure if that counts as Swedish meatballs but it seems everyone makes them a little different and that’s what we’ve always called it

    I love venison! Unfortunately, I am a little freaked out by Deer Wasting Disease. It looks like a deer version of Mad Cow. So I'm temporarily off of venison until they get this figured out. And I hope that they do figure it out since I love my venison.

    Yup. It has sadly made it to this side of the divide. Only a few deer and elk so far, but absolutely a travesty.

    Deer Meatballs,

    I just wanted to write you to tell you how much I love you. You're very yummy, especially in sauce and over pasta. I hope to have you for dinner tomorrow, if you are free.

    Yours truly,

    Blufish

    P.S. I also loved your movie. Very tasteful.

    (We finally finished getting everyone's power back on after six days of 16 hour shifts. I admit, I've had some wine.)

    Odd to wake up to this as I last night saw deer mince used in a recipe

    Cook mixed in pork mince to reduce intensity/broaden spectrum of flavour, and balance the venison fat profile

    Deer Piggy Stu,

    I read about your deer mince recipe (I hope you meant mince and not mice) and I was hoping you would have me for dinner. Well, not "ME" for dinner but "me" over to your house for that lovely sounding deer mince (again, I hope you didn't mis-type mince when you meant mice) recipe. Sorry to be so forward but fate favors the bold.

    Yours truly,

    Torren61

    P.S. I have wine and I can bring it.

    This post only made me wonder what California legalised now. Is it cannibalism or mushrooms

    We raised beef cattle when I was growing up. Always had a freezer full available for home consumption.

    I much prefer venison, given that it's been handled correctly.

    In the late 60's early 70's my grandparents would go hunt a friends ranch in Wyoming.
    Paw Paw didn't clean the tallow off the mule deer when processing it, and mom didn't know to do it before it was cooked.
    Eating a deer roast like that was akin to having rancid Vaseline with every bite.

    I have learned.

    Cool, thanks. Here's the list. Lemme know if you have questions.

    -Approx 13 lbs of pork shoulder
    -3 lbs of bacon
    (We need approx 16 lbs total of pork, which gives us about 20% fat)
    -2 yellow onions
    -2 bell peppers
    -1 large bulb of garlic
    -1 large bottle of Worcestershire sauce
    -1 large container (Costco size) of Montreal Steak seasoning.
    This is for about 80# of venison....reduce amounts for proportion of meat you have to grind. This is tasty stuff!

    I like venison chili.

    What's the difference between beer nuts and deer nuts? Beer nuts are $2.99 and deer nuts are under a buck.

    The wife is making venison sausage balls for the holidays. Tasty!

    That's the difference between sausage balls and... well... never mind.

    I grew up on a farm and we would hunt a lot. I had my fair share of deer meat, don't really enjoy eating it anymore but the secret is in who prepares it.

    As long as I am still employed and can afford groceries I'll stick with beef and pork.

    I have no idea why your post brought this song to mind, but as I laughed, here it is: (probably something Freudian :eek:)
