Younger grandson dropped a nice buck this morning, dropped the heart off as I like it for sammiches. Dasn't eat too much of it, not good for ya, but one or two can't hurt. Much.

Out of the deer, into the pot and between two slices of bread in under 4 hours. Don't get much better than that!

I love venison, but that never appealed to me.

Enjoy PHPaul.

Me either, but I did like the fresh liver after soaking in milk overnight. I haven't hunted in many years so haven't had it for a long time.

Nice! Nothing like fresh venison. And the heart is a delicacy. Congrats to your grandson!

Love Venison, but no organ meats for me. To each his own.

When I used to hunt, I’d do this with the back straps. Garlic, mushrooms, onions and sautéed in butter…man was that good!

I'll stick with the backstraps, sausage and sticks. I guess I'm to much of a wimp to try heart so I can't really say if it's good or not.

I think a lot of that is the optics and I get that.

I was introduced to it via beef heart as a kid. Once it's sliced and disguised so you don't recognize it, it's darn good.

Of course there's the fact that being a picky eater wasn't an option at our house. You ate what was put in front of you and God help you if you even made a face, much less said anything.

There are a number of things that I'd have to be a couple of deep breaths away from starvation before I'll ever eat again. Liver or tongue out of ANYTHING is a no go. Gagged too much of that shit down as a kid.

Memories of one of the best meals ever in my life, stuffed elk heart. Some old friends had me over for dinner and she’s a great cook with game meat.

Kinda funny, I’ve always only called it “deer meat,” never used the word, venison. I wonder if that’s a regional thing?

Hmmmm.... Nice.

Here's a venison steaks marinade recipe, mix proportions to taste:

Favorite band/jar of barbeque sauce
Hosin sause
Orange juice
Spices to taste
Salt/Pepper
Some wine, more wine, or lots of wine. or more. Cheap wine of course.
Brown sugar

Mix all ingredients, place into large tupperware or large bowl with all the raw venison steaks, backstraps, etc., covering the meat with the marinade, and cover everything with minimal air gap to help the natural tenderizing process. Leave meat in the marinade in the fridge two to four days depending on how far you want the natural tenderizing process to progress.

Then grill and serve immediately off the grill. Yum yum yum.

I made up that recipie myself when I used to deer hunt. Worked pretty good with grilling dove breasts, and goose meat to if you were going to grill it instead of baking it like a turkey.

Try it, I've never met anyone who didn't love it, and we always had our friends over for venison. My daughters were little girls at the time and devoured all of it.

Pretty much had that tonight. Onions, mushrooms and peppers in one pan with butter, and back straps in the other. Very good. I had some leftover Béarnaise sauce from a packet, warmed it up to try with venison. The venison didn’t need it, but it was good.

Outstanding! Heart, kidneys and backstrap are my favorites when fresh. It’s been a few years since I had a chance to hunt. I’m hoping next year is my year.

I'm not a hunter, so have no personal references. I will say I've eaten venison from a number of hunters and the memories are varied -- some I hated and some I found very tasty. Apparently a lot depends on how the kill is treated right afterward.

Congratulations to your grandson, and praise for his generosity to his grandfather.
