Asian Venison Meatballs recipe

I was looking over some meatball recipes and came across this Asian Venison Meatballs recipe. I had some venison in the freezer and decided to give this one a try. This is a simple recipe but does take some time to prepare. I have a tendency to be drawn towards recipes that call for Sherry or Marsala wine; because they usually turn out really good. This recipe was no exception; this one will go on my favorites list. The meatballs were moist with an excellent combination of flavors, and the sauce, or gravy was delicious. I decided to serve these venison meatballs with Garlic Mashed potatoes and a vegetable-we all enjoyed it.

If you’ve gotten lucky this deer season and have some venison on hand give this Asian Venison Meatballs recipe a try, it’s really good. Enjoy


1 pound ground venison

1/4 cup onion, chopped

1/4 cup flour

1 tablespoon oil

1 tablespoon sherry

1/2 cup water

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon garlic salt

2 teaspoons cornstarch

Note: If your venison has a strong gamey taste you may want to substitute 1/2 pound of pork for 1/2 pound of the venison.


1. In a large bowl using your hands combine the meat, onion, flour, egg, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Shape into meatballs. In a large skillet using the oil brown the meatballs until almost done.
