Venison with rice noodles

By GrowingDeer,

Venison with rice noodles

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

1 pound venison, very thinly sliced across the grain
1 teaspoon meat tenderizer
1 16 ounce package rice noodles
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 water
1 tablespoon coconut oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups thinly sliced green cabbage and carrot mixture
Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

Sprinkle meat tenderizer over venison and allow to sit for at least 30 minutes. (You can do this a few hours ahead of time as well, simply refrigerate the venison until you are ready to cook.)
Pre-soak rice noodles in water according to package directions.
Whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar and water; set aside until needed.
Heat coconut oil in pan over medium to medium-high heat.
Add sliced venison and cook for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through. (You may need to do this in batches if your pan isn’t large enough. Do not crowd the venison.)
Add minced garlic to meat and continue cooking 1 – 2 additional minutes or until garlic is golden brown.
Add cabbage, carrots and ground pepper to pan.
Cook until cabbage begins to wilt and then add sauce to pan.
Drain pre-soaked rice noodles (save some of the water the noodles were soaked in).
Add drained rice noodles to pan and let cook until heated through and noodles are tender, about 4 minutes.
If the pan needs more liquid add some of the reserved water from the noodles.

Venison Sausage and Poached Eggs

By GrowingDeer,

Venison sausage with a poached egg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

White vinegar, for poaching eggs
Drizzle of canola oil
1 pound venison sausage
5 eggs
5 corn tortillas
Guacamole
Sour cream

Directions:

Bring a large pot of water with a splash of white vinegar to a gentle boil for poaching the eggs.
Warm up a pan over medium-low to medium heat with a drizzle of canola oil.
Form venison sausage into generous patties (I get 5 patties out of one pound).
Cook venison sausage on each side until cooked through.
Just before venison sausage is done, poach your eggs in the large pot of water (if you need instructions on how to poach eggs check out this link).
I poach the eggs until just barely done as the runny yolk is crucial to not having a dry tortilla.
While eggs are poaching, warm corn tortillas by placing five tortillas on a plate and covering them with a damp paper towel and microwaving on high for 30 seconds.
On each plate simply layer one of each: corn tortilla, venison sausage, poached egg, dollop of guacamole and dollop of sour cream.
