This is my sister's dip. She got the recipe while backpacking in Europe a few years ago. She is now forced to make it at every party she has. People smell it cooking and stand drooling by the oven until it comes out! (Many have not been able to wait for the cooling part and burned their mouths to get to it first). You might have to make 2 portions.
**NOTE: Please CHECK the sodium content before you choose a ranch dressing mix, because it will affect the flavor! Some people have complained it is "too salty". Please also make sure you are using only a 1 ounce packet; there are other sizes from various manufacturers. Too much mix throws off the balance of flavors. My sister and I always use the Hidden Valley Ranch Original and we do not have any problems with it :)
You can also substitute half the sour cream for prepared Ranch Dressing and skip the dry mix. It will come out a bit wetter.
This is a hearty stew of white beans, chicken and sausage. This recipe was developed for a 3 quart crock pot. If you use a larger one, you will need to double the ingredients. Serve with cornbread, green onion fans and a side salad.
Tired of sausage that claims to be hot but isn't? Try this recipe. You'll need a grinder with sausage stuffing horn if you want links. Otherwise, use a food processor, and make into patties to pan fry and freeze the rest.
To stuff the casings, you will need a meat grinder with a sausage horn attachment. If you don't have such a device, use the mixture to make fried patties by shaping 1/4 cup of filling into a 1/2 inch thick patty and frying in hot oil until golden brown on both sides.
This is a really quick and easy dinner that is surprisingly tasty. This meal preps like a Tuesday, but looks and tastes like a glorious Sunday. The apples and the Dressing really create an awesome flavor. I found this recipe in the Kraft Food and Family Quarterly Magazine (Winter 2005). It Suggests Kraft products, however I made them with organic products and it tasted perfect. If your pork chops are on the thin side do not sear them as long and adjust the time. Enjoy!
This is from a cool cookbook called "The Washington Cookbook" which features recipes collected from Washington state and published in 1982. From the wild game chapter, this is posted in response to a request. Not one I have tried, but I am happy to up the number of wild game recipes on zaar! The original recipe suggests that the flavor of this dish is enhanced by vegetables and that tiny boiled carrots are a good accompaniment. It also recommends that a bed of wild rice is quite nice. Actually, the ingredient list does not include carrot but the original directions say to sauté them along with the celery and onion. So if you try it let me know how it goes and I'll make adjustments!
I made my very first backstrap tonight, and it was magnificent! I searched all over for a nice marinade, and took a little from a whole bunch of different recipes to make this simple, flavorful marinade. We also painted it over some fresh veggies and grilled them along with the venison. This marinade will also work well with pork loin, chicken, or fish. After marinating, we wrapped the backstrap in bacon and grilled it. Yummmmm.
The #1 rated deer recipe on RecipeZaar since 2005! It's deer season again, and you know what that means - a lot of 'Zaar chefs trying out THE venison recipe again or for the first time. Thanks for all the reviews.
Hands-down, this is the BEST deer meat recipe in America. Even those who don't like wild game meat will fight for a piece of this.
**I will warn you, that this creates almost a "candy tenderloin." You can see from the reviews how many people love it, but if you're looking for a gamey dish that brings out the purely meaty taste of your venison, this is not for you.
I read some of the recipes off of the recipe forum about unusual meats. Now I have a cookbook from Alaska that will tell you how to cook just about anything but this is a recipe that someone might actually use! I serve this with white or brown rice or buttered egg noodles. It comes from "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook"
This recipe was originally for beef round steak, but I've only used boneless venison steaks with it. If you prefer, you can thicken the sauce with cornstarch. The steaks become melt-in-your-mouth tender if you cook it on low and this is absolutely fabulous over mashed potatoes! From Company's Coming Slow Cooker Recipes.
