Suggestion for Taming deer flavor: Rosemary
So I long ago reconciled myself to the fact that deer will taste like deer. It's like salmon. Dress it up how you like, salmon has a unique flavor. For some people, the deer taste is a show stopper.
I was making tacos using deer meat the other day and I threw in some rosemary as a spur of the moment "what if" addition. I didn't put in too much b/c rosemary has a pretty strong flavor. Still it seemed to dampen the gamy deer flavor. My wife agreed and my kids, my hardest critics, didn't kabbitz about either the deer flavor (which they usually don't) nor the rosemary.
brown your ground deer meat in a pan,
add cumin, garlic salt, rosemary to taste and serve 'em up.
I'm right about the metric system 3/4 of the time.
