Venison Stir Fry With Snow Pea Shooters #LeanCuisine


Venison Stir Fry with tender snow pea shooters and sesame seeds make a healthy dish packed with flavor. This Asian inspired stir fry came into being the minute I saw the fresh pack of snow pea shooters that arrived at my door step courtesy of Jade Asian Greens. I got a huge shipment a few days back and have been creating gorgeous green dishes all week, most of which I will be blogging over the next month.  If you’ve never eaten snow pea shooters before, you have to try them. A cross between tender spinach and snow peas these incredibly nutritious tender shoots impart a unique flavor to any dish. I love cooking venison and venison stir fry is one of our favorite ways to eat venison. I added some red peppers, spring onions to the snow pea shooters and mixed in some toasted sesame seeds, fresh ginger and a delish Asian inspired venison stir fry was born. The snow pea shooters from Jade Asian Greens were fresh, crisp, clean, ready to cook and I loved using them!! Check out the picture below.



Nutrition Wise !

Venison is great source of lean protein, iron, zinc and Vitamin B. Not to mention organic and low in fat. Think about it … Deer are constantly running  and they don’t store fat ! Snow pea shooters are a nutrient dense leafy vegetable. This means for very few calories, you get large amounts of vitamins and minerals. They are high in fiber, potassium and Vitamin C. Sesame seeds add a healthy dose of Vitamin E and fiber to this dish. All in all,  a healthy venison stir fry !!

  1. […] 14. Venison Stir Fry Here’s a great recipe to keep handy when hunting season starts, as it gives you something to do with all of the venison that’s available. If you’re not a hunter you can still get venison for a reasonable price when hunting season is in full swing. Venison represents an animal that is eating according to the way nature intended, is free of antibiotics, and is closer to what Paleolithic man would have been eating than the conventional livestock we keep today. If you’re not used to eating game meat, it simply requires cooking it up in ways that seem normal for you, like in a stir fry. […]
