Looking for a fast and easy way to cook a venison meal? Of course, because eating well at home is one thing but eating like the hunting kings we are at deer camp absolutely is a different ball of wax.
Check out the following video from Must Have Outdoors. Simple, wholesome ingredients —venison, veggies and broth, basically — and 45 minutes of just waiting for the CanCooker to steam.
If you’re ready to try it yourself, check out the CanCooker. This is large enough to make a lot of food for camp, family or maybe a church cookout. But you also can reduce the amount of ingredients if you just need enough for three or four folks. You can whip up a great roast or venison stew with no problem.
“The CanCooker is the ideal product for deer camp, or just people on the go,” says Dan Schmidt, DDH Editor-in-Chief. “I really like the ease of use. Dump in your contents, snap on the lid, let it cook for a short amount of time (usually less than an hour, depending on how much food you’re preparing) and voila, instead lunch or dinner. It works really well with venison, because the moisture helps the meat retain its rich, juicy flavor.”
The CanCooker really is pretty doggone foolproof. Just remember to include at least 12 ounces of liquid and the stainless steel rack in the bottom, to give the liquid some space so it can heat, condense and be returned to the meat and vegetables via the uniquely shaped top.
Here’s a cool recipe to try from CanCooker:
Garden Pasta with Venison Sausage
- 1 ½ lb of fresh Venison Italian Sausage
- 1 Medium Zucchini cut into bite size chunks
- 1 Medium Summer Squash cut into bite size chunks
- 3 Tomatoes cut into bite size chunks
- 1 Medium onion cut into ¼ inch pieces
- 4 Sweet Banana Peppers cut into ¼ inch pieces
- ½ Tablespoon of Dried Italian Seasoning
- 12 oz of water
- 1 lb of pasta
- 16 oz of your favorite Spaghetti Sauce
Put racks into CanCooker and spray inside of cooker with a non-stick cooking spray. Add all the ingredients, except spaghetti and sauce, with venison sausage on top. Close lid and latch. Put on a medium/low cooking surface and once it starts steaming, cook for 30 minutes. While this is cooking prepare spaghetti and heat the spaghetti sauce. After the 30 minutes carefully open the lid and put the venison sausage and veggies in a serving dish. Combine with spaghetti and sauce and top with some fresh grated Parmesan cheese and serve.
