Taco Tuesday! YUM!
One of my favorite ways to eat venison (because it barely tastes like venison) is as tacos! The first time we tried making tacos, we went to Price Chopper and bought the taco kit. It was expensive. And it wasn't really enough to leave us satisfied in the bellies. So, then we went to Sam's Club and bought everything in huge packages. That was way too much, we had leftovers for days. Tacos aren't the kind of thing you want to eat day after day.
So, we went to Price Chopper again. Bought a 10p of flour tortillas, PC taco cheese, kept the giant container of taco seasoning from Sam's (because that doesn't go bad), and bought a head of lettuce. And then, we were good to go. So that's how dinner tonight went.
The meat defrosted throughout the afternoon in a "cold water bath" in the kitchen sink. Nathan came home and started cooking the meat while I got everything else ready... The venison burger (prepared just like any other burger) gets browned in a frying pan, then drained. Then ¼ cup of seasoning per pound of meat and ¼ cup of water. Cook it all down. Once the water is cooked up and evaporated, you're good to go!
I chopped up the lettuce, got out the cheese, and heated up the tortillas. The packaging suggests putting the tortillas between 2 damp paper towels and heating them up in the microwave. I've never used the damp paper towels, the tortillas heat up fine without them.
We ate, they were delicious, they put us in good moods - as tacos usually do. And we actually ate at a decent hour, like 5 o'clock. That never happens anymore. It was nice.
So, what's for dinner at your house tonight?
