Whitetail Venison is Perfect for Taking Some of the “Fat” out of Fat Tuesday

Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day, Fat Tuesday – no matter what you call it, a week from today will be a day of indulgence all around the world as millions of Christians celebrate one last “hurrah” before the Lenten season that precedes Easter.

The MVC Family will certainly be celebrating with all kinds of tasty food, but ours will be a little more guilt-free thanks to the deliciousness that is naturally found in lean whitetail venison. Last year, we whipped up some Nawlins-Style Venison Gumbo. This year, we’re brainstorming what could be the perfect NOLA inspired venison dish: Jambalaya with our venison sausage?  Medieval Meat Pie with venison stew meat? Creole-spiced anything?! Stay tuned to see what we come up with!

As always, we encourage you to experiment with venison to come up with delicious seasonal meals! We love seeing the creativity and passion that goes into the dishes made by our venison-loving community. Whether you’re a rookie or a ‘seasoned’ veteran when it comes to cooking with venison, make sure you keep these cooking tips in mind, and have fun with it! If you cook up a winning recipe, we would love to share it in our recipe library! Submit recipe here.
