Ground Game with Rice and Eggs

A camp plate with a base of rice topped with ground game stew, an egg, and garnished with fried onion.

This Asian-influenced ground game with rice and eggs is an effective preparation to create a tasty and tender meal. The game can be any red meat including but not limited to venison, buffalo, or even beef.

There are many game cuts that can be tough and gamey when cooked and this process helps avoid this. There are two elements that help with this, firstly the grinding process which breaks up tough muscles, and secondly the marinading which acts as a tenderizer.

The Asian flavors are subtle primarily coming from the sauces in the marinade. To mix it up a bit the choice of the vegetable can be changed out for corn kernels, diced carrot, or mixed vegetables.
