I am always looking to try new recipes, especially with Venison. This is the first year I have ever cooked with Venison, and I am very careful in how I prepare it. My first experience with Venison other than jerky was not exactly fabulous. I did not grow up eating it, so I could definitely taste the difference between deer and cow beef. Anyways, our goal as a family is to do away with cow beef as much as possible and switch completely to deer, or other types of beef such as bison. If you are new to my blog or clean eating, deer and bison are much better choices when it comes to red meat because they are lower in fat. Anyways, so here is my recipes from last night's meal that was a hit!
Grilled Venison Kabob w/ Marinade
1 lb Venison Roast - Cubed
3/4 c of Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 c EVOO
3 T of Honey
1/4 Cup minced Onion
Deviated from AllRecipes: Sweet Balsamic Marinade
I served with a medley of grilled veggies marinated in the same marinade in another container. I just used what I had and can be veggies you like. My medley included zucchini, grape and cherry tomatoes from my garden, peppers, and onions. Marinate for an hour at minimum, especially for the meat.
DID YOU KNOW?
You should marinate your meat at least an hour before grilling. This limits the amount of carcinogens in your meat. What carcinogens in your meat? Yep! Read the article attached to get the full scoop! Grill Smart This Season!
Sweet Basil Peach & Corn Salsa
3/4 Red Onion
2 Peaches Diced
1 Nectarine Diced
2 Medium Tomatoes Diced (from my garden)
Handful Fresh Basil minced
1/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
2 T of Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 bag of frozen corn (Defrosted)
1/4 c of Lemon Juice
Mix all the ingredients together and refridgerate for at least 2 hours, the longer the better. This is so good and addicting. I ate this salsa with my Food Should Taste Good Tortilla Chips. I also plan to use this on my fish tacos this evening! Yum!
