How To Venison Recipes: Deer Wraps

Powered by Stone Road Media | www.stoneroadmedia.com

There are few things in this world that are like they were centuries ago. Family, religion, and though many don’t realize it…food. When our forefathers came to America, one thing that was plentiful was wild game. From deer (venison) to turkey, settlers relied on hunting to feed their family and villages.

Though I’m no Emeril Lagasse, I do enjoy cooking and especially game or fish that I have harvested. It’s something Neanderthal-like in a way, but going out in search of game and bringing it home to feed the family gives me a sense of pride and accomplishment. Not to mention it tastes so good!

This week I will share one of my favorite deer (venison) recipes for the grill, “Deer Wraps.”

INGREDIENTS

2 lbs Deer Backstrap (Venison) or tenderized steak

1 package Thick Cut bacon

1 package of Cream Cheese

1 ½ c. Sliced (Jar) Jalapeno — Hot

½ c. Balsamic Vinegarette

2 TBS Tabasco Sauce

2 TBS Minced Garlic

2 TBS Garlic Salt

1 TBS White Sugar

1 tsp Black Pepper

COOKING

1. Though no particular cut of deer is required, I like to use backstrap or tenderized steak. Cut the meat into approximately 2” X 1” cubes, no more than 1” thick.

2. I prefer to marinate the deer meat for around 20–30 minutes in the refrigerator. Pour the following directly over top the cubed deer meat.

½ c. Balsamic Vinegarette

2 TBS Tabasco Sauce

2 TBS Minced Garlic

2 TBS Garlic Salt

1 TBS White Sugar

1 tsp Black Pepper

3. Slice Thick Cut Bacon in half width-wise

4. Cut cream cheese into approximately ½” by ½” squares. You will need one for each wrap.

5. Lay bacon strip down and place a chunk of marinated deer meat in the center. Place a cream cheese square and jalapeno slice on top of the deer meat.

6. Close the wrap and secure with a toothpick. I like to soak mine in water starting when I begin prepping ingredients so they do not burn as easy on the grill.

7. Light grill or prepare charcoal.

8. Place wraps on grill on medium heat for 5–7 minutes on first side. Note when bacon grease drips there will be flames that you may to control so wraps do not burn.

9. Flip on other side for around 5 minutes or until the bacon appears to be cooked (dark) completely. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes.

This is a one-bite (or a couple on bigger ones) food. Make sure to get all ingredients in the bite and enjoy!
