Advice About Calorie Control

As stated, venison (as well as other game meats) has a low caloric value. However, as well as counting the number of calories you eat, try calculating the amount of calories you burn in exercise. A 30-minute fast walk each day typically burns 200 calories.

FOOD RECIPE: Venison Pot Roast

– 3 pound venison roast
– oil for browning
– 1.5 cups beef broth
– 1/2 cup dry white or red wine
– 5 carrots, cut in 2-inch pieces
– 3 celery stalks, cut in 3-inch pieces
– 3 potatoes, quartered then halved

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix 1/3 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and 1 teaspoon parsley. Coat meat with the flour mixture and place in a Dutch oven. Brown it on all sides in a little oil. Add the broth, wine and any remaining flour mixture and stir. Cover and bake the roast for about 1.5 hours. Add the vegetables and bake for another hour.
