Venison Stir-Fry

Shelia's Venison Stir Fry
Venison Stir-Fry by DeerRecipes.online

Venison Stir-Fry, venison marinated and tenderly fried and then mixed with stir-fried bell peppers, onions, portobello mushrooms and covered with cheese. Yum!

This recipe was inspired by my cousin, Shelia Collins. I love her chicken stir-fry recipe and every recipe I love I have to try it with venison, so that’s what I did and of course we all loved it.  

My Venison Stir-Fry recipe is a little different from Shelia’s chicken stir-fry. She includes banana peppers and grape tomatoes and then when done she sprinkles chives over the cheese. Delicious! 

I couldn’t find banana peppers at the grocery store and for some strange reason, the mozzarella cheese disappeared. I bought mozzarella for this recipe, but I think a teenage mouse that likes to cook used it, so I used shredded cheddar cheese instead and it turned out great, but I do enjoy mozzarella better. I really want to try this recipe with pepper jack cheese. It’s one of my favorite cheeses.

This recipe is the perfect diet meal and it’s great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It fills you up quickly and keeps you full plus the nutritional values are pretty amazing. Be sure to check them out below.

Venison Stir-Fry

Prep Time: 5 MinutesYield: 6 Servings
Cook Time: 7 MinutesServing Size: 1/6 of Everything
Total Time: 12 MinutesCalories Per Serving: 228

Ingredients

  • 1 lb of venison, sliced
  • 3 bell peppers (red, yellow, and green), sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 12 oz. of sliced portobello mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup of Kraft shredded Mozzarella cheese (or cheese of choice)
  • 1/2 cup Lawry’s Herb and Garlic with Lemon Juice Marinade
  • Spray oil as needed.

Instructions

  1. First, slice the venison and add 1/2 cup of marinade. Put it in a re-sealable bag. Make sure the marinade is all over the meat and let it marinate overnight.
  2. When ready to use, slice all veggies and make sure they are dry. Then drain any excess liquid from the venison. It’s ok if you don’t get it all. You don’t want it completely dry.
  3. Preheat a pan to medium-high heat and spray with oil. Add the venison and fry until done, which should be only a few minutes, depending on the thickness. Remove the venison from the pan and set it aside.
  4. In another pan heated to medium-high heat, spray with oil and add the mushrooms and fry for a minute and then all the rest of the veggies and lightly fry until somewhat wilted, which should be only 2 1/2 – 3 1/2 minutes.
  5. When done, turn the heat to low or warm and mix the fried venison with the veggies and spread evenly in the pan and then sprinkle cheese over the top.
  6. Cover the pan for maybe 30 seconds in order for the cheese to melt.
  7. Divide into six servings, remove from heat, and serve immediately.
