Thanksgiving Venison

Thanksgiving is almost here. We always make a venison roast as well as a turkey. Cranberries go great with venison meat; the tartness of the berries is a nice compliment with the sweetness of the deer. Last year I discovered an fantastic Cranberry-Orange Relish that I served with my venison steaks. Click here to make it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Venison Steaks with Cranberry Orange Relish

Venison goes beautifully with any sort of berry. In the winter, I especially like to experiment with cranberry dishes. This year, I had a HUGE box of oranges that I gotten for a fundraiser, and was madly thinking of things I could do with them before they went bad. I came upon this cranberry and orange relish, paired it with venison steaks, and was very, very happy.
