  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  3. Stir together venison, pork, liver, heart, onions, garlic, and sage in a large bowl. Stir in potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Place mixture into a large oven-proof Dutch oven with a lid.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until meat is fully cooked and flavors have blended, about 2 hours. Mix thoroughly with a fork, replace lid, and allow to rest for 15 minutes before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • The organ meat is barely noticeable, but don't be surprised to see a pink or red color emerge as it bakes.
  • You can add a large can of diced tomatoes if you like.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I made this and added a little cumin and parsley. They whole family loved it. They had no clue they were eating heart and liver!! I can’t wait to get another deer to make this again.

This is the first time rating a recipe.... My son shot a young fawn this fall. We made this for NewYears Day party and it was fabulous. I added more liver than the recipe called for ,just to use...

A very simple recipe with a lot of flavor. I will definitely make it again and add other vegetables. I added some carrots to the potatoes and didn't use any pork. This tasted much better as left...
