Oven Barbecued Venison

3 lbs. boneless venison (deer, elk, moose, antelope)
1 lb. thick sliced bacon
1 cup chopped red onions
2 cloves minced garlic
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
Yellow Rice (use only long-grain)
Salt and pepper


Cut venison into 1-inch cubes. In the bottom of a Dutch oven (or large frying pan), cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon, crumble, and set aside. In a bowl or other container, mix all ingredients except venison and rice. Salt and pepper to taste (or try 1 tablespoon of salt and one-eighth teaspoon pepper). Drain venison and brown it in bacon drippings. Pour off dripping and liquid. Add bowlful of ingredients to venison. Stir well. Cover tightly and simmer about 1 hour, or until meat is tender. Stir occasionally. Cook rice. Serve barbecued venison on rice. Serves 7 or 8 ordinary people.

Comment: Tough meat should be marinaded overnight. The early settlers used ordinary milk. Simply put the meat in a suitable container, cover it with milk, and refrigerate for 15 hours or so. You may prefer it to other marinades because it doesn't flavor the meat. Or, use your favorite marinade.

This recipe can also be used for other game, domestic meat, and fowl.
