Picking up where the road ends!
Venison is a wonderful meat to have in the freezer, and if you're like me, stretching your hard earned venison all the way to next deer season is one of your highest priorities. This venison chili recipe is one I found on MyRecipes dot com (via Cooking Light) and it is always worthy of a pound of our precious ground venison.
Start to finish, this venison chili takes a bit over an hour to go from ingredients on the countertop to venison chili in your bowl and yields enough venison chili to feed 5 or 6 people.
We've made this chili several times and I don't have a single suggestion that I think makes it a better chili. The only thing I'd change is the 3 minute approximate browning time in step 1. Every time I've made this venison chili recipe, the browning time is 5 to 6 minutes, but that could be because my venison packages weigh about a pound and a half and the recipe calls for 1 pound of ground venison.
DO NOT OVERCOOK your venison in the first step when you're browning it! Feeding people overcooked venison is the number 2 reason many people don't like eating anything with venison in it. The number 1 reason people don't like venison meals is an aversion to eating anything that isn't farm raised.
I hope you feast one day soon on this recipe and if you have any thoughts or suggestions let us know using the contact link at the bottom of this page.
