Venison Pierogi

Delicious little pasta pillows filled with spiced meaty goodness.  It’s the best description I can think of for the Polish dish called pierogi.  Little Polish ravioli!  There are several traditional recipes that include fillings like saurkraut or potato/garlic.  Both are out of this world.  However,… Continue Reading “Venison Pierogi”

Making Stock

I love to cook.  I’m guessing that anyone who reads these posts does, too.  It’s important to me to use the wild game that my Deerslayer fills our freezer with… and to use as much of the animal as possible. I’m not sure why… Continue Reading “Making Stock”

Wild Game Osso Buco (Means “I Love You!”)

Deerslayer had a delicious meal in Vail a while ago that he was excited for me to research and try to replicate.  He was so enthusiastic (and cute) that I couldn’t  say, “no”.   The dish was Osso Buco (which means bone with a… Continue Reading “Wild Game Osso Buco (Means “I Love You!”)”

Classic Wild Game Meat Pie

There are certain times when a savory meat pie hits the spot like nothing else. I have no doubt that Sherlock Holmes would eat a delicious meat pie.   Make it with wild game (venison, elk, nilgai, wild pork) and it can’t be beat.… Continue Reading “Classic Wild Game Meat Pie”

A New Year, A New Nilgai

The Deerslayer household has been blessed to start 2015 with our second nilgai in the freezer. It was a pretty big deal… comparable to when our daughters were born. It was a goal that Deerslayer had set for himself during this hunting season.  Mission… Continue Reading “A New Year, A New Nilgai”

Cheese Enchiladas with Nilgai (or Venison) Chili Con Carne

Let it be known, here and now, that the Deerslayer’s wife loves Tex-Mex food.  I always have and I always will. The evolution of the mix of traditional Mexican cuisine with what was available in Texas in the early days of our great state resulted… Continue Reading “Cheese Enchiladas with Nilgai (or Venison) Chili Con Carne”

Faux Barbacoa (Nilgai or Venison)

Living in South Texas is unlike anything else in the world!  There are daily experiences that one would expect  to find only in more remote regions of Mexico.  For example, dodging crates of cactus pads that have covered the street after falling from an… Continue Reading “Faux Barbacoa (Nilgai or Venison)”

All Cooked Up and Nowhere to Go?

Last week, during an unexpected (and appreciated) cool spell,  I took advantage of the opportunity to cook up fifteen pounds of Nilgai rib meat, using my “Cook-All-Day” recipe.  From meat that many hunters would toss out, I produced five delicious meals, right off the… Continue Reading “All Cooked Up and Nowhere to Go?”

Is Rib Meat Worth Saving?

As most of my readers know, Deerslayer and I were blessed with a harvest of South Texas nilgai back in January.  Other than elk, it provided more meat than anything I’ve ever encountered.  With careful packaging (and three freezers) we were able to accommodate ALL of… Continue Reading “Is Rib Meat Worth Saving?”

Deep Sigh!

Grinding Wild Game at Home Well, hunting season is over.  The freezers are full of meat. For the most part, most of the hunting stuff has been put away. Life is good. And yet… it’s kinda sad.  The Deerslayer clan is all about hunting.… Continue Reading “Deep Sigh!”
