Congratulations, you got one! A fine 12 point, maybe a fat forky, or a sleek doe, it doesn't matter because you're now smiling into a freezer loaded with good eating venison. Your wife might not be smiling, though, as she wonders how one fixes deer meat.
Lots of answers to that question.
The vital point to keep in mind for house fraus or cooking bachelors is that deer meat when properly dressed and butchered is quite similar to beef. It has a slightly different "wild taste" that I like very much, as will you, and it's a fine, healthy, low-fat meat unless you had the meat cutter fill your deer burger with beef suet. So, anything you can do with beef can be done with venison.
Lots of it is truly simple. For example, take a pound of venison burger, chop up a little onion in it, add a touch of Worcestershire sauce, then form into patties and fry. Add pickle, more onion, mustard and catsup on a hamburger bun, and eat. Sound familiar? Deerburger makes a fine sloppy joe. too, using either your own recipe or just frying some and adding sloppy joe mix from the supermarket. And don't forget other hamburger recipes like chili, spaghetti and stuffed peppers. Venison works fine for these.
