Venison is deer meat.Today I went to the Asian shop to get goats meat;that was not there but the butcher;a ver nice man insisted me to buy venison.I did agree to give it a try after some persuasion.He had hunted it himself and was throwing at me recipes for venison.
Venison meat is less in fat compared to beef and lamb.The flavour is stronger than beef but cooks quicker and is leaner than beef.
