Barb Conley's Note:
This is an excellent recipe for "what to do with all that deer meat" and is also good done with only ground beef, as many ranchers end up with alot of hamburger after the steaks are gone. The 1# of hamburger is necessary as venison, if ground lean, tends to be very dry. I can't keep this stuff in the house--my family loves it and it is very low fat snack. I got this from a former president of the ND Cattlewomen.
