Deer Meat

Recipe by  

"This is my all time favorite... I serve it with mash potatoes and green beans. the sauce makes an excellent 'gravy' for the potatoes. When I don't have deer meat, I use London broil."

  1. Heat butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and saute until translucent; then add meat and saute until browned.
  2. When meat is lightly browned, add mushrooms, garlic, tomato paste, flour, sour cream, salt, mustard powder and parsley. Stir together, reduce heat to low and let simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. The longer it simmers, the more tender the meat will be. Enjoy!

This is a great meal. The taste is very well and not wild at all. I added not enough sour cream and the taste was a bit strong on the tomato but that was my fault. Make sure you keep the tomato and sour cream in proportion. My 5 year old ate 3 helpings.

This recipe sounded really good but my husband and I didn't like it at all. Since we have so much deer meat, we sure had high hopes but the tomato/sour cream sauce just tasted odd to us.

This was a good one. I love deer, yet this was lacking just a little something for me. Everyone else in the house liked it though.

I also used Ground Cubed for this recipe, This turned out great for me, Wasn't wild and not to blan. I enjoyed playing with it.

You never said what cut of meat ( ground, cubed, or roast ) !!! I suggest that if it is not ground you remove all traces of fat!!! It will improve the flavor. I was not impressed with this recipe...left something to be desired.

The sauce was so bland, thick and pink. Very unappetizing.
