    I'm always looking for recipes to adapt to use venison. I substitute the reound steak for deer loin, use my own homemade tomato juice and add chili beans to please my husband. This is his favorite chili recipe and we make it often.

    Regarding the comment about when to add the steak to the pan - it states in the second paragraph to return the meat to the pan after the onion and garlic are sauteed.Taste of Home Test Kitchen
