I personally am not a big fan on wild meat BUT my husband is! With this recipe it doesn't taste 'gamey' at all. It's very tender as well. I even go back for seconds!

My husband is an avid hunter and we cook venison year round. My husband nephew sons and I all agree this is the best recipe we have ever tasted with deer meat. The meat was soooo tender. I would not change a thing but I will say- I never brown the chops. I browned them the first time then did not have time the second time-could not tell the difference. Now that makes it a really fast and easy recipe- even better! Read More

This was very sweet (and I used less than the packed 1/2 cup it called for). A surprise to the taste buds when it looks like a gravy. Served over mashed potatoes and with leftovers made a shephard's pie. Next time I would leave out or use very little of the sugar Read More

Great recipe! I didn't brown the chops, just tossed everything in the crockpot. Second time I made it, I used steaks because there weren't any more chops in the freezer. The family loved it just the same! Read More

This was delicious! It's easy and used just a few ingredients that are usually on hand. I served it with white rice but my husband says it's just like the way his mother used to make it and she served it with egg noodles. For those who don't like venison they probably wouldn't be able to tell it's not beef. A recipe--a keeper! Read More

This was really tasty. I too am not the biggest fan of deer meat but the venison was absolutely delicious. My husband works hard to get his deer so I try to find various ways to use it and this was excellent. Read More

We really liked this. I used hot and spicy ketchup and since I was very low on onions I also mixed in garlic. Didn't have onion soup mix either so I used garlic and herbs soup mix. Very tasty! Read More
