Living in WV with 3 sons and a daughter all of whom liked to deer hunt, gave me an opportunity to use a lot of venison. I used the ground venison in a myriad of recipes. This is my favorite one for meatballs.


1 1/2 lb. ground venison

3/4 c. cracker crumbs

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp. salt

3 tbl. onion (chopped small)

dash of pepper

1/2 c. milk


1/2 c. ketchup

2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 tbl. brown sugar (light)

1/2 c. water

1 tbl vinegar

Combine venison, crumbs, salt, pepper, chopped onions, egg, milk. Mix well and form into meatballs. Place into a baking dish.

Mix the ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and water. Pour over the meatballs. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour at 350.

Note: If you feel you need more sauce, just use the above ingredients and make a little more. Enjoy!
