I got this recipe back in the 80's from the NAHC Wild Game Cookbook. My sons no longer hunt so I now substitute wild game meat with beef. This is one of my favorite recipes because it is so easy to make, very little clean up and taste so darn good with venison or with a beef roast. Hope you enjoy. I don't have exact measurements for this recipe so I just add according to my taste.
