1 md onion, coarsely chopped

6 md carrots, peeled, halved

-lengthwise; and cut into 1

2 ts chili powder

2 ts ground cumin

1 ts dried marjoram or oregano

1/4 ts red pepper flakes

2 lb venison shoulder, cut into

-1/2 cube; s

1 cn italian plum tomatoes,

-crushed (28; oz)

1 1/2 c defatted chicken broth (or

-beef bro; th)

1/2 c red wine

1/4 c tomato paste

1 cn dark-red kidney beans,

-drained (16; oz)

1 c baby lima beans

3 c cooked rice or barley (opt)

I like to start off this chili with bacon. Once it browns, use 2

tablespoons of the bacon fat to wilt the vegetables - then one more

tablespoon of the fat should be enough to brown the venison. Since the meat

is lean, brown it quickly over high heat.

1. Brown the bacon in a skillet over medium heat for about 10 minutes or

until golden brown. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Reserve 3 tablespoons of bacon fat; discard the rest.

2. Place 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat in a casserole; add the onion and

carrots, sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, marjoram and red pepper flakes,

then cook for 5 minutes. Add the reserved bacon.

3. Pour the remaining tablespoon of bacon fat back into the skillet. Brown

the venison over medium-high heat in small batches and remove to the

casserole with a slotted spoon. (The meat should brown quickly, so raise

the heat to high if necessary.)

4. Add the tomatoes, broth, wine and tomato paste. Bring to a simmer and

cook, uncovered, for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat if

the chili begins to boil.

5. Add the kidney beans and lima beans, then adjust the seasonings. Simmer

10 minutes longer or until meat is tender.

6. Serve the chili hot in 6 bowls (over rice or barley, if desired).

Stuffed Venison Pinwhells

Yield: 8 servings

2 whole venison backstraps,

1 rolled out 1/4 in. thick

1 qt whole milk

2 ts wild game seasoning

1 lb velveeta cheese

1 cn rotel tomatoes with diced

1 chiles

2 lb thinly sliced lean bacon

1/2 c thinly sliced green onions

8 cloves garlic, finely mince

First, prepare the backstrap fillet. It's an extremely tender tubelike

piece of meat about 12 inches long and 2 to 3 inches in diameter. And

because of its shape, it can be cut around the perimeter, 1/4 inch thick,

and rolled out flat. To do this, you need a very sharp knife. Start by

laying out the fillet perpendicular to your body and making a shallow slice

about 1/4 inch deep in the meat. Then, as if slicing through and unrolling

paper towels from a roll, begin working around the outside perimeter of the

fillet until the backstrap comes out looking like a round steak. It takes a

little practice to do ... but you can do it! When the meat is ready, place

both pieces into a glass or plastic container and cover them with whole

milk. You want to marinate the venison for at least 6 hours, but preferably

overnight. The milk tenderizes the deer and helps to remove any unwanted

gamey flavor. After the marination process, remove the meat from the milk

(you can discard the milk), and pat the venison dry with several paper

towels. Then liberally sprinkle both sides with wild game seasoning and rub

it briskly into the meat. At this point, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Then, in your food processor, mix together the Velveeta cheese and the

Rotel tomatoes until smooth and creamy. When you're ready to make the

pinwheels, spread a thin layer of the cheese mixture evenly over one side

of the deer. Then place a layer of bacon strips - side by side - on top of

the cheese. Finish up the preparation by lightly sprinkling on a little

sliced green onions and a little minced garlic. Now tightly roll up the

flattened fillets and set them aside momentarily. Then on the same work

surface, lay out another 8 to 10 strips of bacon side by side and put one

of the rolled backstraps on top of them. Now wrap the bacon strips around

the venison and pin them in place with toothpicks. When you are finished,

the backstrap should be completely encased in bacon strips. Repeat with the

other backstrap. All that's left is to take a sharp knife, slice the rolled

venison into 2 inch thick pinwheels, position them on a shallow cookie

sheet, and bake them - uncovered - in the oven for about 40 to 45 minutes.

You'll notice that a light sauce will form in the bottom of the cookie

sheet; you can use this to baste the pinwheels as they cook. The one thing

you don't want to do is overcook the venison - it will come out dry and

chewy instead of juicy and tender if you do! Note: If you don't have

wild game seasoning on hand, you can lightly sprinkle the venison with

salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and sweet basil as a

Venison Steaks With Chestnuts & Figs

Categories: game

Yield: 4 servings

1 stephen ceideburg

1/2 tb butter

1 black pepper

50 g chopped green onions

200 ml port wine

300 ml stock

24 peeled chestnuts

1 tb butter

8 venison medallions

4 figs

By rights, this dish requires lengthy preparation of a stock made with the

bones and trimmings of venison. However, this is impossible for most of us

who buy venison as a boneless fillet.

A good beef stock is a satisfactory substitute and if you use a canned beef

bouillon (Campbells makes one) and prepare the chestnuts in advance, the

meal can be prepared very rapidly.

Melt half a tablespoon of butter in a heavy saucepan, add a good grinding

of black pepper and gently cook 50 g chopped green (spring) onions. Add 200

mL port and reduce. Add 300 mL stock and 24 peeled chestnuts and simmer for

about 20 minutes or until the sauce becomes syrupy. Set aside and keep


Heat a heat a heavy-based frying pan, add a tablespoon of butter. When it

is very hot, cook 8 medallions of venison, each about 1 cm thick.

Sear them for a maximum of 1 minute on each side, to ensure they are still


Meanwhile, butter a baking tray and slice onto it 4 figs. Place under a

grill to heat through.

Divide the sauce and chestnuts between four heated plates and add to each

plate 2 medallions of venison and a fan of fig slices. Serve immediately.

over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Add apples, venison, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, salt, nutmeg, and

allspice. Simmer 2 hours longer. Check occasion- ally and add water if

necessary to keep mincemeat from sticking to saucepan. Cool mincemeat to

room temperature. (Mincemeat can be made up to 3 months ahead and frozen. If

frozen, thaw mincemeat before making pie or baking time will be lengthened.)

3. Meanwhile, prepare pastry and refrigerate until ready to use-at least 30 minutes.

4. Heat oven to 350'F. Divide pastry into 3 equal pieces. Press 2 pieces

together and shape into a ball. Between 2 sheets of waxed paper, roll out ball of

pastry into an 11 -inch round. Remove top sheet of paper and invert pastry into 9-

inch pie plate, letting excess extend over edge. Remove bottom sheet of paper.
