Where I'm from most soak their veni in milk, before cooking.



Ive heard goes back to Revolutionary war.



Later, save the milk and use it as a sauce/gravy base.





Is that traditional all over ?

I dont know the origin, but try soaking in a big ziploc bag with orange juice and diet coke, overnight in the fridge. Even the "I hate deermeat" people ask for more. It really breaks down enzymes that build in stressed meats. I wouldnt make gravy from it though...

Nybill,

I have had that combo and its good.

- No gravy but makes good basting sauce after.

-You can add or substitute lemon, lime, etc but stick with diet soda. (the regular with all that sugar make the meat gooey)



Do you let the soda go flat first?

Try freezing your deer meat in zip lock bags full of milk. This will stop the freezer burn that venson will get when frozen very long.

H&M, I must agree that italian dressing and then grilling got to be the best way.

Just don't over cook...Unless you like to chew a lot. Italian Dressing is tasty. I think the soaking in milk is supposed to take the gamey taste out. Deer around here don't get that...they're all corn fed. Just ask the farmers.

soak it in milk here in IL and are deer are cornfed. Back when I was dating my wife I would save foam trays from store bought steak and lay them on top of my trashcan because she would check the trash for brown paper She never knew it wasn't beef unill we got married and she caught me re-using trays for meat she'd cooked LOL

during hunting season here, after a fresh kill and the guys have cleaned the deer totally, i soak all the meat in a HUGE cooler with heavily salted ice water for 3 days. Change out the water daily. It pulls the blood out of the meat, lightens it and takes the gamey taste out. Then process or freeze.. marianated in Italian dressing and wrapped in bacon, then grilled.. or fried tenderloin, gravy and homemade biscuits....but by far, my favorite way is having the meat cubed, hard to beat a good southern fried cube steak with gravy, mashed taters, cat head biscuits and some collard greens.....

Here in MN I don't think there is a gamey taste. My whole family will take deer stakes over beef anytime. No fat to cut of and no gristle to chew.

Nothing added.
