Healthy Deer Fajitas

Hey guys! I’m sharing a recipe tonight – deer fajitas! I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • two bell peppers, color of your choice (I used green)
  • one large sweet onion
  • 2 lbs of deer loin tips (I soaked mine in milk overnight to get rid of some of the game taste)
  • 2 packets of taco seasoning
  • S + P
  • cumin
  • a lime
  • butter
  • cooking spray
  • Teriyaki sauce
  • tortillas
  • shredded cheese
  • sour cream
  • salsa
  • avocado

Directions:

Spray a cast iron skillet with cooking spray and add about 1/2 tbsp butter. De-seed and chop bell peppers finely. Place into skillet and cook until soft, not on very high heat as you don’t want to burn them. Add a bit of salt as they cook.

Once the bell peppers are soft, add the onion, cut into slices (I like mine a bit bigger), and another 1/2 tbsp butter. Cook the onion until translucent (again, lower and slower is best, IMO). During the cooking process, I splashed a bit of teriyaki sauce on the onions and the bell pepper.

Cook cook cook!

Once the onions were about done, I squeezed half of a lime on them for some acid.

Now it’s time for the deer! I rinsed my soaked deer and patted it dry, and then I cut it into fajita sized strips.

Then I added it to the onions and bell peppers along with two packets of seasoning! I chose cheesy taco and fajita this time.

After the seasoning is completely stirred in (I don’t add water like the directions say as the deer emits juices), I added cumin and S+P to taste – with deer, it’s easy to overcook, so I like to go low and slow. Honestly, it takes practice and patience – I go by the feel of my deer to know it’s done, and I honestly can’t explain it – I’ve just done it so many times that I know! If you’re unsure, pick out a larger piece and slice it in half – you want a little bit of red to still show.

Then I squeezed the other half of the lime on it for brightness. And it’s done! Store until you’re ready to make a fajita!

We use Tortilla Land tortillas … you just throw them in a cast iron and heat until bubbly!

Then assemble your tortilla – I used avocado, shredded cheese, salsa, and sour cream, but lettuce is great in place of the tortilla too for a salad! In fact, you could wilt some spinach into the onion/bell pepper mixture for an extra kick of veggies.

And that’s my healthy deer fajita recipe!
