25 Savory Venison Recipes

Sharing is caring!

My dad was always a hunter when we were kids. He enjoyed the sport and our freezer had venison in it quite often. As an adult I do not cook venison recipes too often, but when I do the flavors are truly incredible. I remember having it in stews and soups, even as a chicken fried steak substitute.

Venison can pretty much be cooked any way you want. Sub it in for any of your favorite proteins. Plus it is lean, so no worries on the fat. If you are needing some inspiration for your next venison dish then here are some ideas to make it totally crowd pleasing!
