Big Game Pie Recipe

Last year at Christmas the hubs had gifted me with a cook book called 301 Venison Recipes The ultimate Deer Hunter’s Cookbook.  I haven’t used it at all and this morning I took out some ground venison and in some recipes like tacos it can taste gamie.  So I thought I would bust out that cookbook and see what I could find.  I found a recipe called Big Game Pie and it turned out yummy.  I did however change some stuff up more to our liking and I’m happy I did.


  • 4 large potatoes (mashed) or instant potatoes                        Inline image

  • Sour Cream for mashed potatoes

  • 1/2 c milk
  • 3/4 c beef broth
  • 2 -1/2 c venison, cubed and browned
