Lean and crazy-flavorful with just a hint of gaminess, venison is a perfect fall meat. While you probably won’t see it in most supermarkets, a good butcher should definitely have it if not now, then soon (deer season is just around the corner). Try making it at home with one of these incredible recipes.
1. Bacon-Wrapped Rack of Venison
There’s one rule for venison: It should be served rare and hot. Here, the lean meat gets extra flavor and fat from thin slices of smoky bacon.
2. Kalahari Venison Medallions with Plum Sauce
Jacques Pépin developed this quick but sophisticated main dish using local African impala, but venison is a fine substitute.
