Woods to Table

Today my dog and I had venison steak for lunch.  Mine included eggs and cole slaw – his was served on the deck. While my wife and son rarely eat venison, I am sure Tucker will gladly join me anytime I cook it. 🙂 

Venison is one of the most nutritious meats one can eat. With little fat, it cooks quick. It takes a little practice to get the timing right for the proper medium rare result. Today I baked it for maybe one minute too long. Usually I under estimate the time and check on it a couple times.

Adding fat from eggs, olive oil, avocado or nuts is needed in a diet that includes a lot of lean venison. To add flavor, I sometimes add olive oil when cooking and hot sauce later, but to me, a good medium rare steak is great with nothing added.

Ray Hitchcock Taxidermy always does an excellent job with the processing, and when I am lucky in the woods, creates handsome mounts.
