Cabernet Venison Burgers

Friday, January 3, 2020
Making Venison burgers are easy but your recipe should always consist of some additional fat because the meat is so lean.


This recipe is made with bacon fat or another kind you rendered from pork, in a pinch you can use butter or olive oil.


I love the blend of flavors and venison needs some special ingredients added to make an over the top burger.


If you're looking for a great burger made with deer meat, this will surely a keeper recipe for you.


Adding some cheese on top and any kind of condiments will enhance the burgers but they taste great just the way they are.


We make several delicious recipes using venison meat like venison sauerbraten, stew, venison fried rice, fried venison steaks, even a venison pot pie.


Scroll down to the recipe card and try these Cabernet Venison Burgers, you won't be sorry!

Something Different



These burgers are not like a regular hamburger, they're so lean and require some fat to make them flavorful and juicy.


There is nothing worse than a dried-out venison burger.


Some simple additions will make this a delicious burger everyone will love.

Hunting Season



For those not familiar with deer meat, this is hunter meat.


During the season for hunting, hunters from all over sports deer.


If they bag a deer, it then is sent to a butcher and various cuts of meats are made from the deer.


Ground venison can be used in place of ground hamburger meat for any recipe with some alterations.


As I previously said, it's lacking fat content and very lean so fat needs to be added for flavor and keeping it from drying out.

Bacon Adds Loads of Flavor



I have tried adding ground pork, and that definitely is a good substitution for just frying and wrapping these in bacon, however, my family loves bacon cheeseburgers, so these were fondly received on our table!


If you would like to add pork fat, try adding 1 1/2 pounds of ground venison and 1/2 pound groud pork butt instead.


Proceed with the same recipe ingredients in the recipe card.

Wines to Use



Only use wine that you would drink, don't buy something low grade in flavor.


The wine that isn't good to your palette will ruin your foods.


I like to use Cabernet or Merlot, you can use whatever red wine you prefer.


When baking burgers, add more wine in the pan if it evaporates, these taste great baked in it or even a little in the frying pan besides being added to the meat.

How to cook Cabernet Venison Burgers

  1. Note: Because of the lack of fat content, I suggest cooking these in bacon grease or any rendered pork fat so I also cook some bacon for breakfast when making these and save the grease for burgers.
  2. Mix the venison in a medium-sized bowl with the egg, wine breadcrumbs, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, dried parsley, salt, and pepper.
  3. Shape into patties and wrap each one with bacon ( as much as you want).
  4. You can either freeze these on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and save for another time or cook immediately. (If saving place in ziplock bags when frozen.)
  5. Melt the butter and add oil to a heavy-duty fry pan or use rendered bacon or pork fat.
  6. Saute the burgers on low until the bacon is crisp or you can also bake these in some butter and 1/4 more Merlot of Cabernet wine and burgers are cooked to your preference. 
  7. Add the cheese last on top of the burgers.
  8. Place on a hard roll.
  9. You can top this with your favorite sauces or condiments.
