What's your favorite cut and dish of venison? Mine would have to be chicken-fried steak.

Even has recipes for oppossum and raccoon(not so sure I'll be trying any of them out!).
    I could make a joke about Missourians and eating coon and possum, but...I think I'll pass. Lol. Raccoon would be about the last thing I'd eat before starving. Maybe it's just that I've seen so many coon carcasses after trapping and skinning them for years, or maybe it's how greasy they are, but I just find the thought of eating coon repulsive. Possum too. I took a DNR trapper-education course when I was a kid, and at the end of it they gave away a booklet with all kinds of tips and tricks and stuff in it. But at the back of the book they had recipes for preparing all kinds of furbearer meat, including, believe it or not, fox, coyote and even SKUNK! I don't know about you, but I would have to be pretty dang desperate before I would even think about eating a skunk.

      Since you grind it all. How about we trade? I'll give you 2 lbs. of whatever cut you want for each pound of tenderloin and back straps.

        Oh, and I'll throw in all the rave reviews you need.

          Another thing I do with venison cuts destined to be ground, I mix in some good ground beef. Not beef or pork fat, I think that turns some people off.
          The beef ground with venison helps hold it together on the grill and tempers the taste of the venison some for those who may not be crazy about venison.
          Most people who don't like venison tried some that was not handled and cooked properly or never tasted it at all. This way of making burgers gets past their prior negative experience.

            NO SKUNK eating! UGH! Yuk! Nor any canine or cat.

              If you mean fried Loins and backstraps....I 100% agree...had some last week....it's better if the deer meat is less than 2 years old for tenderness

                Tenderloin/back-strap wrapped in bacon and fried until medium rare with salt pepper and sage. Great eating! Even the wife loves it done this way and she is not a great fan of wild game.

                    Sounds great and making me hungry!

                        That's what PigHuntress does - mix ground beef and ground venison.
