  • NTC Wild Game Dishes and Other Recipes
  • After the previous post below on wild game/venison chili and such, the idea hit me to initiate an NTC forum specifically for wild game dishes and other favorite recipes to share. Any others interested in this idea? Everyone has their own chili recipe and it's always nice to try new stuff. We'd need a good amount of member interest and would be a switch from tractor talk. I vote "YES" to a specific forum for sharing food recipes.

  • Try this.

    1 quart canned venison
    2 cans cream of mushroom soup (no water added)
    1 small can mushrooms.or a good hand full of chopped fresh ones)
    1/2 packet of dry onion soup mix

    Mix all ingredients, heat and serve over noodles. You can also serve over home fries,rice,bread, or what ever trips your trigger.

    Fast, easy, and good. Takes less than 10 minutes.

  • Maybe with some sub headings? Like using canned venison. My wife uses our canned pints and quarts for many recipes.
    "beef" stew
    open face sandwich
    frying pan bar-b-que
    SOS
    beef over rice
    and several others

  • I have never met anyone that cans meat. I would love to try it the stroganoff sounds real good but I can't find any canned venison.

  • Venison is one of the easiest foods to can. You clean the fat and white skin off, cut into approx. 1 inch pieces, pack into mason jars. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt to a pint, 1 tsp. to a quart. I also like to add an equal amount of beef bullion. Pack into the jar as tightly as possible, leaving 1/2 in. headspace in pints, 1 in. in quarts. DO NOT add liquid. It will make it's own.

    Process at 10 lb. pressure in PRESSURE CANNER, not boiling water bath, for 90 minutes. Let cool naturally. Do not cool with cold water. That's all there is to it.

  • Exactly how I do mine, except I do it for 3 hours in a water bath... I know,I know, but I have an aversion to a pressure cooker and I have never had a problem with the water bath. Never tried the Bullion.

  • You will never have more than one problem with a water bath. Botulism doesn't give second chances.

  • Basically any dish using beef you can substitute venison, elk, moose, caribou, antelope, buffalo, and other meats. Many 'wild game' recipes call for a ton of ingredients that end up masking the flavor of the meat. When the game is prepared correctly, you can eliminate the 'gamey' taste. Trim all white tissue, fat, tendons, et al and you'll get excellent table fare. We'd have categories of course -fish, waterfowl, upland birds, turkey, deer/elk/venison group, and others exotics.

  • I don't think Tim meant it that way. He said that many recipes call for a lot of ingredients that mask the taste. I didn't take it as that's what he did. Lets just go with it and see what happens, any one can always leave out what they don't like and add what they do to suit there own taste.. I do that all the time, my wife is allergic to celery so I always have to leave it out ( yes, she really is,I didn't believe her and found out the hard way that she really was ).

  • Re: NTC Wild Game Dishes and Other Recipes
  • Yep, not what I meant. If we do this, our Wild Game category would have instructions on how to properly field dress a deer, and how to properly butcher and process it, and how to properly cook it. That goes for any wild game -bear, boar, or whatever. Many guys take their deer to the local butcher who does processing on a mass scale. They weigh it and determine how much meat you will get back, with hardly any guarantee you will get YOUR deer back. They'll cut up deer all day, make sausage, hot sticks, kielbasa, and package the rest stamped what it is. Some don't bother to trim the excess fat and white tissue which is where the gamey taste lies. We butcher our own deer right in deer camp and package it up there, never have taken to a commercial butcher shop. The other bad habit many do is overcooking the meat. So I propose we also have good instructions on preparing wild game the moment it is down til it hits your plate.

  • No harm meant. We just skinned a raccoon yesterday to go with the venison, squrriel, rabbit, feral pork, bass, crappie, and catfish in the freezer. OH? and turtle. Have another deer in the cooler on ice now, ready to process. Will likely make sausage and jerky with most of it. Didn't mean to step on toes, sorry if I did. I just have always loved my wild game, from frog legs and turtle, to rabbit and venison.

  • Re: NTC Wild Game Dishes and Other Recipes
  • Than I'm not interested. The reason I eat 90% wild game is all the different flavors. If you are gonna mask all the flavor you may as well eat steroid packed meat from the store. I'll let you guys have all that.
