Recipes Tips

If you are new to cooking with deer meat, it is important to note that it has a slightly gamey flavor compared to other meats. To reduce this flavor, you can soak the meat in milk or buttermilk for 1-2 hours before cooking. This will also help to tenderize the meat and make it more flavorful.

For a spicier chili, you can add more chili powder or cayenne pepper to the recipe. If you prefer a milder chili, you can reduce the amount of chili powder or omit it altogether.

To save time, you can chop your vegetables and measure out your spices ahead of time and store them in an airtight container until you are ready to cook.
