More help Claudia!

My BF is an avid deer hunter so we have about 100 pounds of meat in our freezer, a large portion of it is lean ground. We will use this as a healthier alternative to beef this year and I am clueless on how to use it for low fat meals. I am from the south and we are raised to believe any red meat should be battered and fried and since I am trying to lose weight and am SICK of Hamburger Helper do you have any lower fat, easy to prepare meals using ground meat? Some 30 minute (from fridge to table) meals would be awesome!!

Hi there,
I'm not very familiar with deer meat, but here are a couple of recipes for ground beef that I'm sure you could substitute ground deer meat for. I looked for recipes that were lower in fat and quick to prepare. Let me know what you think.

20 Minute Beef Vegetable Rice Dinner

1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 can (14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (10-1/2 oz.) condensed beef broth
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
2 cups Minute White Rice, uncooked
1/4 cup Kraft 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese



BROWN meat with onion in large skillet on medium-high heat; drain.
ADD tomatoes with liquid, broth and vegetables; stir. Bring to boil.
STIR in rice and cheese; cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes.

Favorite Meatloaf

1 cup finely chopped onions (about 1 large)
1/4 cup Kraft Light Zesty Italian Reduced Fat Dressing
2 lb. extra lean ground beef
3/4 cup ketchup, divided
1 pkg. (6 oz.) Stove Top Stuffing Mix for Chicken
1 cup water
2 egg whites
1/2 cup Kraft 2% Milk Shredded Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese



PREHEAT oven to 375F. Cook onions in dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium heat 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
COMBINE meat, 1/4 cup of the ketchup, the stuffing mix, water, egg whites and onions; mix well. Place meat mixture in 13x9-inch baking dish; shape into 10x5-inch oval loaf. Spread with remaining 1/2 cup ketchup.
BAKE 55 min. to 1 hour or until cooked through (160F). Sprinkle with cheese; bake 2 min. or until cheese is melted.

Easy deer recipe

We live in deer hunter country and here is an easy recipe. I take the small pieces and crock pot them in diced potatoes, chopped onions, and low-fat cream of mushroom soup I add a bit of water, fresh ground pepper but no salt as the cream of mushroom is salty enough for us. Cover and cook on low until tender. The length of time depends on how much is put in the pot. A nice Saturday dish.
