I mentioned yesterday that I needed to get a tad caught up on my Dark Days meals since I missed the past two weeks :0
So, last night for dinner, Allen made a Venison Pot Roast. I was a tad concerned I would go to bed hungry as his track record cooking Venison isn't exactly up there with Martha & Julia. But, I went at it with an open mind...and empty fork...and honestly, it wasn't too bad. After a few bites, truly it just tasted like the [cow] beef I am used to eating. But I kept picturing the dead deer hanging from the rafters of my garage and it kinda made me not really beg for seconds! ;)
Seriously though, if I didn't think about it, it wasn't bad. Then I think, how silly. It is just Venison. Get over it. But Vension is not something we normally eat, nor something we grew up on, so obviously, it takes some getting used to. I guess too, I don't see the animals I eat in their whole form and then butchered down so that could be part of the aversion too ;) But that could be a whole other blog post for another time!!
Carrots, potatos, onions and garlic all purchased from local farmers!
Do you eat venison? What is your favorite way to prepare it?
