Deer and Beer with Garlic Red Potatoes

Deer and Beer with Garlic Red Potatoes



Every year when hunting season begins a gaming friend brings us a whole deer and that’s how we ended up with  40 lbs of Venison. I love Venison since it’s one of the healthier meats! lean protein … have you seen fat deer? Organic too since deer feed on wild foliage. Finding creative ways to cook  and serve Venison when I am cooking it every week  is challenging. So this year when my new batch arrived I asked  The Real Matt Daddy , a Daddy Blogger  who cooks fabulous dishes if I could steal one of his recipes. Well,  Matt shared a’ beer soaked deer recipe’.  I added my favorite spice  to it and Voila a delicious recipe! The wheat beer gave it a unique flavor like I have never tasted before and the new recipe became a big hit with my family. Thanks Matt!

A  BIG bonus to this recipe is that it is a “One Dish ” crock pot recipe. Throw everything together in the morning and you have a fully cooked meal when you come home in the evening! Ahh can’t beat that!

Some Nuts and Bolts about the key ingredients:



Wheat Beer : Helps to tenderize the meat and gives the dish a smokey exotic flavor.

Garlic : Helps remove the gamey flavor and adds some zest to the dish.

McMormicks Steak seasoning :  This peppery blend of spices in my favorite spice mix for any meat dish.

Red Potatoes : Packed with fiber they make a dish a whole meal in itself.

Red Onions : Packed with B6 and potassium they are the base of the delish gravy.

Meat Tenderizer : Extra insurance to make sure the venison gets soft and tender.
