Venison Recipes: Venison Sandwiches
If you have a deer hunter in you family, consider yourself lucky since you probably have a freezer full of venison right now! This recipe for venison sandwiches is my husband’s and my favorite way to cook and eat deer meat! We could easily eat this at least twice a week without getting tired of it.
The KEY ingredient for us is the hot pepper cheese…it’s a MUST! We like our food with a little kick so if you prefer something less spicy, simply use a different kind of cheese.

You can drain the venison if you prefer dryer sandwiches. I don’t drain the meat too well since my husband loves extra juice to dip his sandwiches in.
This is the easiest venison recipe that I know of especially since you do not have to thaw or brown the meat! Plus, there aren’t many ingredients and you can quickly prepare it in the slow cooker! Double this venison recipe if you would like to have sandwiches for lunch or dinner the next day!
