5 Mouth Watering Venison Meat Recipes To Die For

venison4-1

venison4

Cooking venison has always been a bit of a controversial subject growing up. I know my grandfather used to eat venison brains with his scrambled eggs, so some of us are adventurous. However, several people in our family were squeamish and would only eat the hams and tenderloins if they were breaded and chicken-fried. This was the only way I knew to cook venison meat until I was in my 30’s.

Mouth Watering Venison Meat Recipes

A few years before my son was born I started frequently hunting again and decided to find new ways to cook venison. I also wanted to use every part of the deer that I possibly could, so I knew this would take some creativity. Even my extended family has come around and is now branching out from their chicken-fried limitations. My wife and three year old son love the flavor of the meat with nothing but salt and pepper.

Here are my top venison recipes based on popularity and on utilizing as much of the animal as possible:

1. Coffee Rubbed Venison Tenderloin

venison1 5 Mouth Watering Venison Meat Recipes To Die For

If you are having guests over that do not mind their meat medium, this is a good option. It tones down the gamey flavor so anybody can enjoy your meal. The combination of the coffee and berry sauce is a nice highlight.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½-2 lbs. Venison Tenderloin
  • Berry sauce (optional)
  • Berries of your choice
  • Lemon juice
  • Water
  • 2 Tbsp. Sugar

Rub:

  • 1/2 cup coffee grounds
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs cinnamon
  • 3 Tbs salt
  • pinch of pepper

Step 1) Preheat oven to 350F

Step 2) Mix the rub and thickly coat the tenderloin on all sides.

Step 3) Heat a cast iron pan to the point of almost smoking and then sear meat on all sides.

Step 4) Pop in a 350F oven for 5 minutes.

Step 5) Remove from the oven, cover with foil and then drape a towel over top. Let it rest for 10 minutes.

Step 6) Slice 1in thick and serve with or without berry sauce. Goes well with a spinach salad.

For optional berry sauce, put any berries along with a little water and a little sugar in a small sauce pan and bring it to a boil. Add a little salt and turn it down to a simmer until it reduces by 1/2. Spoon over sliced venison.

2. Seared Venison Steaks

venison2 5 Mouth Watering Venison Meat Recipes To Die For

This one is about as quick and easy as it gets.

Ingredients:

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Venison Ham or Tenderloin

Step 1) Trim all fat and silver skin off of the meat and cut it into one inch thick steaks.

Step 2) Heavily salt and pepper both sides of your steaks. Venison needs a lot of salt.

Step 3) On a smoking hot grill or cast iron skillet, sear each side for 3-5 minutes. You want these steaks to be medium or medium-rare.

Step 4) Rest your meat by removing from the grill on a plate, wrapping plate in foil, and throwing a towel on top. Rest for 10 minutes, serve, and enjoy!

3. Venison Meat Stew

venison3 5 Mouth Watering Venison Meat Recipes To Die For

This recipe is intended for all the little bits of meat that you may throw out or grind currently. I use rib meat, flank steak, and sometimes the neck meat for this stew.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs scrap venison cut in one inch pieces
  • ½ lb chopped carrots
  • ½ lb chopped onions
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • ½ lb chopped celery
  • ½ lb chopped potatoes
  • 1 cup worstechire sauce
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped garlic
  • 1 can of cream soup (mushroom, chicken, garlic)
  • Salt, Pepper, and Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 Tbsp butter

Step 1) Make sure all the fat and silver skin is removed from the meat.

Step 2) Heavily salt and pepper the meat and then sprinkle with flour.

Step 3) Melt the butter in a pan over medium high heat and brown the meat on all sides.

Step 4) Put your crock pot or stew pot on the high setting and add the veggies and liquids.

Step 5) Add the meat on top without mixing, add Italian seasoning, and bring to heat.

Step 6) Reduce to low and let cook for six or more hours.  It is done when the meat falls apart like roast beef.

4. Venison Osso Bucco

venison4 5 Mouth Watering Venison Meat Recipes To Die For

Here is one of the few ways that you can cook the shanks from a deer and have it turn out delicious. For this recipe you will need two whole shanks sawed into disks 1 ½ inches in thickness. Partially freezing the shanks and then using a hacksaw or power saw is the best way to cut these.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 or 2 medium onions finely sliced
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 medium carrots, diced into fine cubes
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 8-ounce cans of vegetable stock, beef stock, or water
  • 1 14-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon each of finely chopped rosemary, thyme, and oregano (optional, but strongly recommended)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Step 1) Preheat oven to 325F

Step 2) Put an oven safe pan over medium high heat and add the oil.

Step 3) Sprinkle the meat with flour and sear on all sides.  Set aside on a plate.

Step 4) Add butter and onions, garlic, celery, and carrots. Drop heat to medium and cook for about seven minutes or until they start to get translucent.

Step 5) Arrange your meat discs flat and side by side packing them all in with the bone marrow facing up.

Step 6) Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, and pepper on top of the meat. Then add stock to the pan bringing the liquid just to the top of the meat but not submerging it.

Step 7) Add a tight fitting lid and cook for three to four hours or until the meat can be pulled back easily with a fork.  Check periodically and add more stock if the liquid is low enough for half of the shanks to be exposed.

Step 8) Serve over polenta, rice, or couscous. Make sure you have some toast points and spread the bone marrow over the toast for added richness. Enjoy!

5. Prime Rib Style Roast

venison7 5 Mouth Watering Venison Meat Recipes To Die For

For those of you that have ever had tough or dry venison, this recipe will blow your mind. It is also super easy.

Ingredients:

  • Venison roast (preferably bone-in)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Whole garlic cloves

Step 1) Preheat oven to 300F.

Step 2) With a sharp knife cut slots in the meat to stuff your garlic cloves on all sides.

Step 3) Rub down heavily with salt and pepper.

Step 4) Next, Cook for 25 minutes per pound for rare and add 5 minutes per pound for medium and so on. Use a meat thermometer and check the internal temperature without touching the bone with the thermometer.  145F is rare and add 15F for medium and so on.

Step 5) Remove from the oven, cover with foil, and drape a towel over top. Let it rest for at least 10 minutes. Slice and serve with horseradish on the side.

6. The Classic Chicken-Fried Venison Meat Steaks Or Hearts

venison8 5 Mouth Watering Venison Meat Recipes To Die For

Introduction to Building a Storage Shed – Part 2

Written by John Hertig on The Prepper Journal.

3.5/5 (4)

In Part 1 of Introduction to Building a Storage Shed we considered why as a Prepper or survivalist you might want to build a shed, and gave some options and preliminary decisions to make and checking out to do.  In this part, we will look at some other things to consider before you install your storage shed.  And some general lessons learned to keep in mind through the process.

Storage Shed Kit Sources

Doing an online search seems to be an effective method.  Doing a search for “shed kit” on eBay gave me an idea of what was available.  Searching for the top brands found companies specializing in shed kits such as ShedsForLess.com.  Once I found the make and model I was looking for, more specific searches found the best price.  Prices seem fairly universal, although I did happen to find a sale on my choice.  A local source may be cheaper since delivery can be handled in house, but will be increased by sales tax, so the total price should be compared with companies which have to include freight in the cost but don’t have to charge tax.  It seems that shipping is usually “free” (more accurately, included in the cost) on some of the major brands.

Keep in mind that the floor is usually not part of the kit, although often can be ordered with the kit.  Often it is delivered first, from a local source, which means the quality might not be optimal.  On mine, most of the joists could be forced into place, but I had one beam which was warped at a knot, and attempting to force it straight caused the beam to snap.  Replacing it was not trivial, since the only receipt I had was the shipping order, and it took a long time for the local store to find it in their system, since it did not have my name on it or even the name of the company I ordered from.  It was under the name of the kit manufacturer.

shed015

There are kits which are material only, and those which are pre-cut.  The latter is easier to assemble and requires less equipment.

Also, when pricing a (wood) kit, keep in mind that hardware is often included, but paint and roofing are usually not, and these products are not cheap.  I could not believe they get over $30 a gallon for paint these days; fortunately Ace had a buy one gallon, get one gallon free sale.  For most (wood) sheds, the specified roofing is shingles, and those run about $1 a square foot.    Flooring, roofing and paint was about 1/4 of the total cost of my kit, and that did not include the roofing gun and scaffolding which will be used for other projects as well.

Options

Often a kit company will offer “options” such as additional or different doors, windows, a ramp, shelving/cabinets and various ventilation methods.  If offered by the kit company you pretty much have to order it with the kit.  Ventilation is good to prevent heat build-up; a “ridge vent” methodology is probably the best, but usually not available with the kit.  If you are going to use the shed strictly for storage, then windows would seem to be pretty silly since you lose wall space and reduce the security.  However, if you are going to be spending much time in there, a window or two will be quite helpful for light, ventilation and to reduce claustrophobia.

storage-sheds-building-4

What to Have on Hand

The first thing to attempt to arrange is other people.  There are a couple of aspects of building the shed which will be very difficult for a single person to accomplish, without using “tricks” which need to be purchased or constructed.  More people not only allow completing these aspects in a “normal” manner, but will make things quicker and perhaps even “more fun”.  After all, if a single person needs to drive 1000 nails, two people only need to drive 500 each, and so on.  Plus, don’t discount the motivation having others involved provides.  If you can arrange for a person or group to help, that should be great.  If you don’t have people available or that you trust, it does not mean you are out of luck, just that you will need to approach the project differently.

There are certain basic tools you will need.  For a pre-cut wood building, that will be a hammer, drill (primarily for driving screws), tape measure (25′ may be adequate for medium sized buildings), level, framing square, carpenter’s pencil and a circular saw.  Having a cut-off saw was nice (more ergonomic and precise), but is not really needed by the pre-cut kit; the square and circular saw will suffice since there are not that many cuts left to be made.  A panel saw would have been handy, but for the one cut needed for the floor of my kit, a long straight edge, a pair of clamps, and the circular saw did just fine.  And you will need a ladder or two.  And, of course, don’t forget safety glasses and work gloves.  Plus arrange for the equipment for your preferred painting methodology.

Remember those 1000 nails?  I’ve used a nail gun for construction and it is very helpful indeed.  However, since the kit came with all the correct nails, I did not bother getting the pneumatic equivalents.  However, roofing nails were NOT included, and roofing is enough of a pain; I got a roofing nail gun and the nails for it.  Some kits say that “felt” under the shingles is “optional”.  I disagree.  Not only does it provide protection from a small leak in the shingles, but it protects the shingles from the roof panels and vice versa.  For the felt, you will need a hammer stapler and staples (no, a pneumatic stapler won’t do; it goes right through the felt, and your hands will hate you if you try using a standard squeeze stapler).  For the shingles, a utility knife and a bunch of hook blades for it, and a pair of tin snips (for the edging).  Be sure the hook blades fit your utility knife; my knife had a couple of extra pins which match up holes only in the same brand’s (much more expensive) blades.

10x12-storage-shed-plans

This list assumes that everything goes perfectly, which it sometimes does not.  For instance, if there is a warped or twisted board, it can often be forced into position using a pipe wrench.  Or a twisted beam can be encouraged to stay in place with a long bolt and nut, tightened with a wrench and socket wrench.  Some places get rain, and getting raw wood wet is not wise.  A tarp big enough to completely cover the roof (and bungee cords to fasten it down with) can be a great help.  Things sometimes don’t fit quite right; I found a package of composite (not wood) shims (from Timberwolf) to be of great help in these cases.  If you end up with a crack or hole that insects can get through, some spray foam like “Great Stuff” can help.  Although roofing CAN be done with ladders, it is a tedious, slightly more dangerous process.  Buying or renting scaffolding can make it go quicker and is a bit safer to boot.  Of course, it might be easier and not much more expensive just to hire someone to do the roofing.

I used several other tools which I had on hand, to overcome problems and make “enhancements” to the shed.  These should not be normally needed.

Caveats

It is tempting to just order the kit and work on the site when the floor kit arrives.  This can be problematical; it took me over a month to get the floor flat and level (since the ground was very much neither).  Yet, the shed kit arrived only a few days after the floor kit.  Be aware of what the relative weather is between the source and your location.  My kit came from Pennsylvania when it was cold and wet, and arrived in Arizona where it was warm and dry, and sat in that wildly different environment for over a month.  It is not surprising that I had more warping and twisting than expected.  Two lessons learned.  Prepare site before ordering, and be aware of relative weather between source and destination.

home-show-010-small

The floor kit is often delivered by a local lumber outfit, who may have a trailer and fork-lift, and can put the pile in a relatively out of the way location.  The shed kit may be shipped by a standard shipper who has nothing other than pallet jacks to move things around with.  Pallet jacks require a smooth, solid surface, so they had to leave my kit in the road and I had to quickly and manually move it into my pickup.  The total kit weight is a bit over a ton, so to move it from curb to site will take more than one trip with a “1/2 ton” pickup.  When you get to the site, have something for the materials to sit on to keep them off the ground, sort the parts by size, and then stack them with the last needed pieces on the bottom and the first needed pieces on top.  I had two stacks, one of boards and one of sheets.  Cover with tarps if precipitation is expected.

Find the inventory list before you start unpacking and use it to verify the contents as you unpack.  I did a manual inventory, and matching it with the official one I found later was a bit of a challenge, since my descriptions did not match theirs.  There were a couple of pieces missing and a couple which were unusable; a call to the company got replacements sent right out.  Read the manual from cover to cover before you start, then follow it “exactly” (except for any typos) unless you are doing the build by yourself.

It was annoying that the 16′ shed floor kit came with 8′ runners; it was a challenge to keep them together and straight; I eventually gave up and used “StrongTie” connectors to hold them together end-to-end.

Standard felt is very easily torn.  It usually takes two people to install, and after we got one side up and took a break; the wind, more accurately a gentle breeze, ripped most of it off.  I finally had success with double thickness felt which is somewhat stronger, a “tool” I built which allowed me to put it up by myself, and putting on the edging as quickly as possible to prevent  wind from getting under the felt edges.  Yes, you need more rolls (being thicker, there is less length in each roll), but in climates such as ours, you generally put on two layers of standard felt anyway.

How to start

The first step is to figure out everything you want to accomplish with your shed, then find out any limitations on what you are “allowed” to put up and where you want to put it.  This includes finding out what is required by building codes.  Make sure you have plans for any alterations to be made to the shed; find the materials and figure out when in the build process you will need to diverge from the standard instructions.  Next, find the model or models of kits which you like, and get an idea of the pricing.  Arrange financing (cash or credit), prepare the site (marking and leveling for wood, forms. rebar and pouring for concrete), then order the kit.  Find out when it will be delivered and arrange to be available, with a truck or two to move the parts from where they deposit them to the construction site, and preferably people to help to load and unload.

The Shocking Truth About How Barack Obama Was Able To Prop Up The U.S. Economy

Barack-Obama-Looking-Into-A-Mirror-Public-Domain-460x329

barack-obama-looking-into-a-mirror-public-domainBarack Obama is one of the biggest “Keynesians” of all time, but unfortunately most Americans don’t even understand what that means.  In this article, I am going to share with you the primary reason why Barack Obama has been able to prop up the U.S. economy over the past eight years.  If Barack Obama had not taken the extreme measures that he did, we would be in the midst of a historic economic depression right now.  But by propping things up in the short-term, he has absolutely demolished our long-term economic future.  But like most politicians, Obama has been willing to sacrifice the future for short-term political gain.

If you take any basic college course in economics, you are going to learn about John Maynard Keynes.  Without a doubt, Keynes was one of the most famous economists of the 20th century, and one of the things that he believed was that governments should go into debt and spend more money when an economic downturn strikes.  By injecting additional funds into the economy during a time of crisis, he believed that the severity of recessions and depressions could be reduced.  This approach ultimately become known as “Keynesian economics”, and in the post-World War II era virtually the entire world embraced it at least to some degree.  Here is more on Keynes from Investopedia

An economic theory of total spending in the economy and its effects on output and inflation. Keynesian economics was developed by the British economist John Maynard Keynes during the 1930s in an attempt to understand the Great Depression. Keynes advocated increased government expenditures and lower taxes to stimulate demand and pull the global economy out of the Depression. Subsequently, the term “Keynesian economics” was used to refer to the concept that optimal economic performance could be achieved – and economic slumps prevented – by influencing aggregate demand through activist stabilization and economic intervention policies by the government. Keynesian economics is considered to be a “demand-side” theory that focuses on changes in the economy over the short run.

Keynesian economists correctly point out that there is a “multiplier effect” to government spending.  In other words, when the government spends money it ends up in the hands of ordinary people.  In turn, those people spend that money on various goods and services that they need, thus boosting overall economic activity.  And the more the money circulates, the more the economy is stimulated.  So one dollar of additional government spending does not just add one dollar to GDP.  Rather, the impact on GDP is often significantly greater than that.

Of course the bad news is that whenever the government borrows money it is stealing consumption from the future.  So we are literally destroying the future that our children and our grandchildren were supposed to have in order to make the present look a little bit brighter.

When Barack Obama entered the White House, the U.S. was in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.  The Bush administration had already begun to ramp up spending, but Barack Obama took “government stimulus” to ridiculous new levels.  The national debt has risen by an average of more than 1.1 trillion dollars a year while Obama has been in charge, and this fiscal year we are on pace to add more than 2 trillion dollars to the debt.

At this moment, the U.S. national debt is a whopping $19,901,545,151,126.51, and it will cross the 20 trillion dollar mark by the time Donald Trump is inaugurated on January 20th.

But when Barack Obama was inaugurated, the national debt was only 10.6 trillion dollars.  That means that we have added about 9.3 trillion dollars to the debt since that time.

So we have borrowed and spent 9.3 trillion dollars under Obama that we did not have.  But because of the “multiplier effect”, that 9.3 trillion dollars actually had a far greater impact on the U.S. economy.

Let’s be conservative and just double that number.  So that would give us an 18.6 trillion dollar overall impact on U.S. economic activity.  Spread over eight years, that comes to an average GDP impact of 2.325 trillion dollars a year.

But over the last eight years U.S. GDP has only been averaging about 16 trillion dollars a year.  So if you took away 2.3 trillion dollars a year, that would be about one-eighth of our entire economy.

In other words, without all of this debt that Barack Obama and Congress have been getting us into, we would be in the worst economic depression in U.S. history right now.

And I haven’t even factored in state and local government debt, corporate debt or household debt.  The truth is that I am not exaggerating one bit when I say that we are enjoying a debt-fueled standard of living that we simply do not deserve.

But even with all of this debt, the U.S. economy has still not been performing really well.  In fact, Barack Obama is going to be the only president in U.S. history to not have a single year when U.S. GDP grew by at least three percent.

Despite what many in the mainstream media are telling you, the reality of the matter is that Donald Trump is going to inherit an economy that is deeply troubled.  If you doubt this, please see my previous article entitled “11 Very Depressing Economic Realities That Donald Trump Will Inherit From Barack Obama“.

Donald Trump is talking about cutting taxes and reducing regulations, and all of those things are good, but ultimately those measures are not going to matter that much.

What is going to matter is what Donald Trump decides to do about our exploding debt.

If Donald Trump wants the U.S. economy to continue to remain at least somewhat stable in the short-term, he is going to have to keep piling up debt like Obama has.  Because if Trump and the Republicans decide that they want to get our debt under control, that will plunge us into a horrifying economic depression almost immediately.

But if Donald Trump continues to steal money from future generations of Americans at the same pace that Barack Obama has been doing, he will literally be destroying the future of America.  It will be a crime on a scale that is almost beyond words, and if they get a chance to do it, future generations of Americans will look back and curse him for what he has done to us.

So Donald Trump is really in a no-win situation when it comes to the economy.

The only way that he can match Obama’s performance is to do what Obama did, but by doing so he would literally be killing the future.

As a nation we have been consuming far more wealth than we produce for a very, very long time, and the only way that we have been able to do this is because we have been able to go into so much debt.

But now a day of reckoning is fast approaching, and I am not sure if Donald Trump even realizes that he will soon be faced with some incredibly heartbreaking choices.

This Clothing Company CEO Doesn’t Want Gun Owners In His Pants

Screen-Shot-2016-11-30-at-6.26.23-PM

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-6-26-23-pm

Levi’s CEO Chip Bergh doesn’t seem to be interested in the business of 110 million American gun owners.

A few weeks after a deeply divisive election campaign might not seem like the most opportune time for a retailer to step into that hottest of debates in America: gun rights.

But the tense political climate hasn’t stopped Levi Strauss & Co from asking customers to refrain from bringing guns into its U.S. stores even when local law allows them to.

Levi Strauss Chief Executive Chip Bergh made the request in an open letter to customers posted on LinkedIn on Wednesday, aware of the potential to anger many customers, and is seeking to reassure them by saying the move is all about safety and not a political statement.

“It’s not an anti-Second Amendment thing,” Bergh told Fortune in an exclusive interview. The denim apparel maker stopped short of issuing an outright ban on firearms.

Bergh’s post comes just a few weeks after a customer carrying a handgun accidentally shot himself inside a Levi’s store in Commerce, Georgia, sustaining a non-life threatening injury. What’s more, Bergh says that a number of store workers have expressed concern as more customers have brought their weapons into Levi’s stores.

“You don’t need a gun to try on a pair of jeans and it’s really out of respect for the safety of our employees and consumers shopping in our stores,” says the 59-year-old vegan and former U.S. Army captain. Bergh, who is not a gun owner, noted with pride that he has fired weapons countless times and surmised he could still clean a gun blindfolded as he could in his military days.

Actually, Chip, those of us who concealed carry handguns inside the waistband—which is a substantial portion of the 14+ million Americans who choose to carry a concealed weapon—really do need our holstered guns, mag pouches, and other EDC (everyday carry) gear if we’re going to make sure that our clothing is sized correctly and conceals our concealed handguns as we desire.

It’s really nice that you were once a soldier and I thank you for your service, Mr. Bergh. I even understand that you’re sensitive to the concerns of some of your employees. The correct answer to fear, of course, is education, and you’ve instead chosen to validate their fears.

That’s your choice to make, of course.

Just remember that your customers have choices, too.
