How to Cook With Venison Meat

Both dry-heat and moist-heat cooking methods work well for venison. Dry heat includes grilling, roasting, broiling, and pan frying. Moist heat includes braising and stewing.

Moist heat is best for the lesser-quality cuts, which make great stews, slow-cook roasts, and meat loaf.
