Venison VS Beef

Hey Folks,

Anyone eat much Venison around here? Contains a similar amount of protein to beek but less than half the fat. Its probably a bit more expensive than beef and has a slightly stronger flavour, but it makes a nice change from good ol' beef. Stats:

Beef/100g
Protein 17.5g
Fat 12.5g

Venison/100g
Protein 17.7g
Fat 4.5g

    venison is cheaper than beef if you go to a game dealer at the right time of year since they are culled.

    Your 'figures' aren't accurate, the fat content varies massively depending on which cuts of venison/beef are used.

    Saw the goat meat on 'the f-word' there other day, not much fat on them all at.

    As for Vension, ive just looked it up in 1 of my nutrition books to refresh myself, and it contains more protein than any other red meat. Fat levels are very low aswell.

    Ostrich steaks.......... mmmmmmmmmmm

    Venison tastes good.

    Some day I want Dannyboy to take me grocery shopping, or at least invite me round for a BBQ, cos he has the best taste for quality foods going.

    Heh, everyone thinks I'm crazy at work, they're all eating cheese and pickle sandwiches and I bring in a shark sandwich or some wild boar sausages.

    I bet no one else on MT has five pints of unpasteurised buffalo milk in the fridge

    Should also mention that venison is a source of omega 3's, go for wild where possible.

    You haven't tried very hard have you - just because something isn't shrink rapped on a supermarket shelf doesn't mean it isn't available in abundance. Having said that I've seen venison in Sainsbury's, Waitrose and Budgens when it's in season. Your best bet is a game dealer either at a farmers market or online.

    did you get that from a meat mart dannyboy?

    mine sell all of the above and crocodile steaks and kagaroo as well
    the venison is a bit dearer than rump steak and a bit less than sirloin

    My dietery requirements are slightly different and takes out the supermarkets or the game dealers completly for any meat.

    Your post didn't make sense, not sure if you couldn't find it or couldn't get it.

    Not heard of meat mart.

    Get everything from butchers/farm shop/farmers market at the moment.

    There's a butchers near my future work that sell crocodile, zebra etc so I plan to give them a try at some point.

    then i was comparing the price of the deer meat compared to the price of the cow meat.
