Hamburger Green Bean Skillet
We always have a lot of venison in our freezer. I’ve thought about joining my husband in hunting, but I don’t think I could ever get myself to shoot an animal. It used to bother me a lot in the beginning since I didn’t grow up with hunting. I still remember the first time I had deer meat. It was very difficult for me to eat as I couldn’t get past the visions of Bambi and the fact that a wild animal had been killed. After learning about how much better venison is than most commercially sold meats, I became thankful that I am fortunate to have plenty of deer to eat. We live at the back of an old farm which is surrounded by hundreds of wooded acres. Although I enjoy watching the deer that visit our yard, I know that these animals provide a healthy source of meat for my family.
We process a lot of the venison into hamburger which tastes like extremely lean ground beef. The butcher does add some pork fat since the deer meat is so lean. This may be one of the reasons why I like the venison hamburger so much. I typically cook it at least once a week. Most of the time, I just brown it in garlic then add vegetables and soy sauce. It’s makes a really tasty and fast dinner.
