To make this recipe more diet-friendly…

  • All of the cholesterol in this recipe is coming from the venison, which has been found to lower LDL cholesterol and increase HDL, which is a great thing! This recipe has little cholesterol, to begin with, so I really wouldn’t worry about it. However, if you must you could put less of the venison in your cup.
