"The first time I served this dish to my deer-hunting family, everyone thought I had ordered from an Italian restaurant," says Dianna Croskey of Gibsonia, Pennsylvania. "My brother-in-law even asked me to make this for his birthday dinner."
"A moist stuffing with apples and raisins is great with pork chops, so I decided to try it is venison chops, too," relates field editor Sue Gronholz of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. "My husband, Todd, keeps our freezer full of venison. These chops are tasty and tender and special enough for company."
"My husband, Willard, and I own a hunting lodge and host about 16 hunters a week at our camp," says Edna Ylioja from Lucky Lake, Saskatchewan. "The slow cooker makes easy work of fixing this flavorful goose dish, which is a favorite of our guests. The recipe makes lots of savory gravy to serve over mashed potatoes."
"This is our favorite way to fix venison tenderloin," says Sandra Robinson of Fair Grove, Missouri. "The marinade and coating eliminate the wild flavor in these tender mouthwatering steaks."—Sandra Robinson, Fair Grove, Missouri
"With only two ingredients, this is definitely the easiest recipe I have for cooking the wild turkey that my husband, Richard, brings home during spring hunting season," says Michelle Kaase of Tomball, Texas. "The grilled meat takes on a wonderful sweet smoky flavor."
From Tigard, Oregon, Janelle Inkens writes, "These venison steaks are so tender and tasty, they're even a hit with my kids, ages 3 and 4. Someone who tried this dish once said, 'Wow, if I could make venison taste like this, I'd make it all the time.'"
Succulent quail with a snappy sauce makes an impressive entree. "This dish tastes wonderful over rice or toast points. Sometimes I'll use cinnamon toast to add delicate flavor," says Chris Sendelbach of Henry, Illinois.
