I am not a fan of deer meat, but my husband loves it. So, to compromise with him, I came up with this recipe (and perfected it over the course of time) so I would be able to eat the deer meat as well. I have made this recipe with both the beef and the venison and loved it both ways, so did my husband. The V-8 and the Lawry's adds a lot of flavor as well as tenderizes the meat :)
