Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

  • To make biscuits, mix the self-rising flour and sugar together in a bowl, and stir in the melted butter and 3/4 cup of milk. Knead the dough very lightly for 5 to 7 times, until it barely hangs together, and roll out to 1/2 inch thick on a floured surface. Cut biscuits with a biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass dipped in flour.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes, until the biscuits are golden brown.

  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and place the deer meat into the hot butter. Sprinkle the meat with salt and pepper, and pan-fry until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove the meat to a platter.

  • Pour the chicken broth into the skillet, and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits off of the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon. Stir in 1 cup of milk and the maple syrup, and whisk in all-purpose flour until smooth. Bring the gravy back to a simmer, add salt and pepper to taste, and allow to thicken, whisking to avoid lumps. Return the deer meat to the gravy, and simmer until the gravy is thick, 5-10 minutes. Serve over biscuits.

I was out of venison steak so I opted for burger instead. Because the consistency reminded me of traditional bisquits and gravy I added 1 tsp maybe a little more of poultry seasoning(to give it the sausage flavor) and a little cayenne pepper. It was delicious. I was reluctant to add the maple syrup at first but it added such a nice flavor. Thanks for the new addition to my recipe box and another way to cook the deer in the freezer.

Very good. I am always looking for new ways to fix venison and while I don't like gravy my husband is a big fan. After fixing this dish for him I asked him if this was something he would want again (my test gauge) and he replied "yes definitely!". Read More

Recipe was delicious. Loved the gravy and I don't like gravy. The biscuits only need 1/4 cup of milk. Read More

I made this delicious and healthy venison recipe tonight for dinner and let's just say there's not much left over! I'm always looking for new recipes to try with my deer meat. This one so far is my TOP FAVORITE. My boyfriend really loved it to. I enjoy reading the reviews and agree with adding 1/2 cup of additional flour and that made the biscuit perfect. I cooked mine the full 14 minutes in the oven... DELICIOUS!!! All in all I LOVE this Recipe! Thanks for sharing!!!! Read More

I am only reviewing the biscuits. They tasted fine but the batter was so thin they cooked up more like pancakes. Bleh Read More

The gravy was excellent. This was my first time cooking deer sausage and I was worried how this would turn out. The gravy was smooth and creamy with a slightly sweet taste that complimented the deer perfectly. Everyone in the house loved it both kids and adults! The biscuits could use a little work. I added about 1/4 cup of flour to the recipe after mixing it up and seeing how runny the biscuit dough was. This helped me to form biscuits. They cooked up well but they were crispy and crunchy on the outside making them hard to cut on the plate. I will continue using this gravy recipe for our weekend breakfasts but will go back to using the biscuit recipe in my better homes and gardens cookbook. Read More

Gravy was amazing!! Had to add about 1/2 cup of flour to the biscuits since they were too watery. Read More
