When a friend of ours called a couple of weeks ago and asked me if I wanted a deer, I hesitated...you just never know what people mean when they ask you if you want an animal down here in the south!
But- free for the picking up- was a crate of venison!
And you wanna know what's really neat about the timing? My 16 year old had just come upstairs that morning from the freezer to let me know that we were almost out of red meat and well, deer is the other red meat! We love it!- God is good!
It's lean and we don't seem to think it's 'gamey' and it can do anything beef can do 'cept only better- especially when it's free!
1 lb loin, cut in small strips
1 large onion, sliced
2 heaping tablespoons of fat (lard*)
1 1/2 T Worcestershire Sauce (love French's)
Saute onion and venison in fat on medium-low heat until meat is no longer pink.
Add Worcestershire and continue to cook 3 to 5 minutes on low heat.
Add to buns top with cheese- and you have- amazing!
*You gals know I love to render my own lard when I can get it, but for these, I actually used bacon grease. Someone at church had given me a whole jar of leftover bacon grease. Sweet!
You KNOW you're loved when folks share their bacon grease with you!
