“Goat Tacos”

Friends!

I’m so excited to share the first of many cooking episodes here on this site. For a long time you’ve seen many posts here with step-by-step photos which take you through the recipes, but we’ve decided to spice things up around here and give some of the how-to’s in a video format for those of you who learn better this way. As always I’d love your feedback and questions in the comments section below. It is a work in progress, and like a fine venison back strap, it will get better with time.

Stay hungry my friends.

This is one of my favorite simple preparations for tender cuts of meat. I use it often on lamb chops and it is ready in less than 20 minutes. I had some purty venison backstraps from my Girl Hunter Weekend in Arkansas, aged 20 days, so I tried my magic rub on them and it …

They have my x-ray on hand to refer to, which expedites things nicely. While I’m sitting here though, I thought I’d tell you about my favorite hot sauce recipe of late. …
