Ground venison can be substituted for beef in spaghetti sauces, chilies, tacos and meatloaf

Some people look at a plate of venison and see Bambi. This article probably isn’t for them.

But with deer-hunting season here, the rest of you may be interested to learn that venison is flavorful, versatile and healthy. It is a red meat with less fat than chicken and nearly as much protein as beef.

Ground venison can be substituted for beef in spaghetti sauces, chilies, tacos and meatloaf. Cuts can be grilled, pan-seared and even stir-fried.

The meat’s strong flavor marries well with traditional autumn ingredients like pears, cranberries, pumpkins and squash, making it a perfect choice for the season’s holiday dinners.

But many people avoid venison, not only because of childhood memories of a beloved Disney character, but also out of concern for taste and safety.

“I think a lot of people feel that game tastes gamy and it really doesn’t,” said Teresa Marrone, editor of many game books, including “Preparing Fish and Wild Game” and “Dressing and Cooking Wild Game” (both by Creative Publishing International). “Big-game meat, if cooked properly, is even tastier than choice beef. And because it’s leaner than beef, it also has fewer calories. But the lean meat can become tough and dry if cooked incorrectly.”

The taste of the meat depends on the animal’s diet, its sex, age, the time of year it was killed and the way it was treated after the kill, she says.

A farm-raised, corn-fed deer, for example, will be milder than one that lived in the wild. An older animal is generally tougher and stronger-tasting than a younger one. Because venison is lean, it’s important to use moist heat and avoid overcooking, chefs say.

Venison is considered safer than chicken; as long as the meat is heated to about 140 degrees, or medium-rare, there’s little danger of disease, experts agree.

In Maryland, hunters are required to immediately remove the animal from the field and take it to an approved check station within 24 hours. After that, hunters can butcher the meat themselves or take it to a meat processor.

“If a piece of venison is bad, it’s usually caught before it’s wrapped,” said Paul Peditto, deer project manager for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. “In my tenure, I’ve never heard of anyone suffering from improperly handled venison. I guess it goes to the issue that it is hard to get it any fresher.”

In Maryland, a record 77,660 deer were bagged during last year’s hunting season, said Peditto.
