I’m not going to write anything big this week, but I am going to share with you a wild game recipe. Since my husband is an avid hunter and fisherman, I’ve had to learn some new ways to cook wild game.
I’m going to share with you my favorite venison recipe this week, thanks to Timmy’s mom, and I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.
Back strap and Bacon
1 backstrap of Venison
1 lb of bacon (you can use any kind, I used platter)
3 pkg. of Brown Gravy mix (follow the directions on back of pkg)
Make sure all of the silver skin has been taken off the backstrap. Then begin to cut into 1/2” to 1” thick pieces. Take 1/2 slice of bacon and wrap around the piece of back strap, securing it with a tooth pick. Once this is done, you will need to brown your meat in a large skillet. Preheat oven to 350º. Mix gravy up into a brown and set aside. Once the meat has started to brown, place it in a glass baking pan and pour the brown gravy on top. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes to 1 hour or until meat is completely done. Remember to take the tooth picks out before eating.
Every time I fix this meal, I top it off by having mashed potatoes, corn and green beans as the side dishes. I hope that you enjoy this meal as much as we do, and it’s a good way to get children to eat deer meat.
I had a two year old and a five year old ask for seconds after fixing this for them this past weekend.
NOTE: I was going to write this big long column about how people need to learn when to speak and when to bridle their tongue. Or how they should ask questions to the right individual before they begin jumping to conclusions.
Instead, and I’m only going to write this once, if you don’t enjoy reading my column or if you find fault in everything I say, then by all means, don’t pick up the paper and read it every week. You won’t be hurting my feelings one bit.
Oh, and just to make things clear, I want everyone who reads my column to know that I don’t put my husband down in anyway and I’m sorry if you see it as such. In fact, he gets upset with me when I don’t write a column. He enjoys reading it as much as the next person.
I’ve said my piece and that’s the end of that. And to those who enjoy reading my column, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I hope you keep on reading!
