Shuvait Thusoo
Shuvait has lived in Pune alone for 4 years while studying engineering. This was the time period when he explored the South Indian Cuisines and experienced different spices and realised the beauty of food. So he started cooking and fell in love with the craft of it. We can say that Shuvait is a foodie who loves to share his food life experiences and resources with our readers.

I was watching Discovery Channel, and the show which was coming was Bear Grills’ Man vs Wild and he haunts a deer there and he was eating that deer and while eating he said in American where he lives, there is a dish of deer named Venison Meatloaf and in America everybody loved it.

I called my friend who stays in California to know more about the dish and I asked him many questions related to dish. I will share some questions with you people. Here are some:

What kind Of Meat is Venison?

In current usage, the term venison is used to describe the meat of a deer or antelope. Venison comes from animals such as our native whitetail deer, reindeer, moose, elk, and several non-native animals such as red deer, axis deer, fallow deer, sika deer, blackbuck antelope, and nilgai antelope.

What does Deer Taste Like?

When people describe venison taste and texture, they often use words like rich or earthy; this is festive-tasting meat, often imbued with hints of the acorns, sage and herbs that the deer enjoyed during its life. It’s also considered to be less juicy and succulent than beef, but also smoother and firmer.

Deer Meat Is Healthy?

Venison is richer in protein than any other red meat. And being non-farmed, venison isn’t full of antibiotics or steroids like some of the beef you buy today. Add to its list of health benefits venison is low in fat and cholesterol. It’s also high in nutrients like B vitamins, iron, and phosphorus.

I asked him about the Venison Meatloaf Recipe and I will share that recipe with my lovely people who love to eat Venison Meatloaf.
