Venison Recipes

Venison is the general name for the meat of any species of wild or farmed deer. Larger species, such as moose, elk, caribou and antelope, are often included in the category. Venison is high in protein and low in fat and is considered a healthy red meat. Venison is usually prepared two ways: slow and moist for roasts and ribs, and quick and hot for steaks and cutlets.
