It is time to start thinking about the outdoor adventure of grilling! Venison steaks are excellent on the grill, but they are best if the meat has time to tenderize in a marinade for a few days. If you want to grill tonight, try these Italian flavored burgers….
1 pound ground venison, thawed
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/3 cup green olives, chopped
1-2 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all of the ingredients together and form into 4 hamburger patties. Grill until desired temperature.
USDA recommends to cook the meat to an internal temperature of 160 degrees. To test the temperature, insert a meat thermometer sideways into the burger.
