I don't live with my family but I live with a bunch of really nice people.
On Sundays we have a meal together and today is my turn to cook.
I'm Canadian and something that is a really big treat for most of the people in my household is to have a roast of venison or deer. I don't eat it myself but I don't mind cooking it and I thought I would share the recipie with you. All the measurements are guesses! I don't measure anything!
It also takes about 3 days to make, though it is totally not hard, I made up the recipie myself!
Mystery-girl's orange glazed venison
1 cup orange marmelade
1/2 c hickory (or favorite semi-spicy) BBQ sauce
1/4 c vegetable or olive oil
1 c white vinegar
2 T montreal steak spice or similiar spice mix
1 t of garlic powder or 1 clove minced
1/4 c soya sauce
fresh cracked pepper and sea salt to taste.
1) I take my roast out and thaw for 24 hours in a brine of 1/2 c sea salt and water to cover it, leave it out during the day and refridgerate at night
2) mix all the ingerdients together and let sit overnight for another night as well, not mixed with the salt water!
3) put Venison (or other roast) in a crockpot or dutch oven pour the sauce on top and refridgerate overnight
4) cook on low all day, basting occassionally if you are around :)
as you can see from the picture, the orange rind in the marmelade coats the top and makes a glaze.
I don't eat the venison but the sauce is also good on Tofu or chicken.
Well, I did warn you this blog was random but I doubt you expected cooking tips too lol.
Soli Deo Gloria!
