Cooking with Wild Venison

We have teamed up with Discovered Wildfoods to bring you some top tips on how to cook your venison. Venison is an incredibly lean, high in protein, and low in fat meat. Venison can be used in burgers, tacos, lasagne, slow cooks, and our favourite... the good old BBQ.

1. Bring your meat to room temp

Number one hot tip, bring your meat to room temperature before cooking. An hour out of the fridge should do the trick.

2. Medium Rare is the way to go

As venison has a very low fat content, it is best served medium rare. You can use a meat temp to get the inside temp to near 57-60°C.

3. Prep your meat

We recommend marinating or giving your meat a lick of oil before cooking. This will help when you are barbecuing and stops the meat from drying out too much.

4. Rest is best

The best way to consume your venison is to let it rest after cooking. Cover in foil and let it sit so the meat is tender and juicy.
