The thick delicious brown gravy with mushrooms is just pure comfort food, especially when served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes.


If you are looking for venison recipes, this is surely a delicious one and you really can't tell it's not beef!


The kids loved it too and the best part no one even asked what it was because it tasted so good and the same as regular hamburger.


I know sometimes you can just think about wild game meats and not be interested in even trying it, but if you love venison and need ideas for using ground venison, try this recipe first!


You can leave the mushrooms out if you're not a fan and I will give other substitutions for ingredients below.

  3. Italians did indeed saute or fry everything in butter or olive oil. Stick to the olive oil mostly and you are just fine. And sauteeing first in garlic = yes, she knew what she was doing. I'd have a garlic laden hamburger any day of the week.
