SIMPLY ELEGANT DEER
You may be thinking, “deer at potlucks?” Yes, around here many of our dishes are deer, because we have freezers full of it. We had a chili cook- off at church last year and three of the eight chili’s three were deer, one was turkey, and one was elk. One deer chili came in second place(it was my son’s, Smalls). Pretty much if can legally hunt it, we will cook it and make it taste fabulous. However; you can use beef, chicken or turkey with this same recipe. This goes great with fat potatoes, rice or noodles.
