Organic Venison Chili

We love organic venison chili and it is a great way to utilize a lot of the organic vegetables that you grow. The star of this show is the venison. The satisfaction of creating an awesome meal with the meat from an animal that you were lucky enough to harvest is unlike any other.

In addition to the organic ground venison, we will use organic onions, organic peppers, organic tomatoes and organic kidney beans.

The key to good ground venison is to utilize the best meat grinder that you can afford and then to mix in a fat of some kind while you are grinding the deer meat.

You can use beef tallow, pork fat or even bacon and you should mix the two in an 80-20 ratio. Use 80% venison and 20% of whatever fat you are going to add.

Venison is very lean and benefits tremendously in both taste and texture from the addition of fat.

So now that you have learned what to mix with venison while grinding, let’s get on with the recipe.
