If you live in an area where you can purchase a blended seasoning intended for game that's a good choice. But you can make a good basic seasoning using equal parts of garlic salt, onion pwd then add 1/2 again as much black pepper.

How to Make Shepard's Pie Venison Style


  • 1Cut onion and green bell pepper into small pieces but not minced.

    Mince celery
  • 2Season ground venision well in skillet
    Add onion, green pepper & celery.

    There is no fat content in wild game..the vegies will add their own moisture to the skillet but Be prepared to add a bit of oil to facilitate the frying process.

    Put a good brown on it for good flavor..the vegies should be soft -but don't burn them
  • 3Add worcestire sauce, stir and taste. It should enhance the flavors..not overpower them

    Add the fire roasted tomatoes and cook on med.heat till all vegies are fully cooked.
  • 4Remove mixture with all it's juices to 9x13 dish
  • 5While meat & vegies are browning..
    Cube potatoes and boil till soft. Drain

    Add a stick of butter and give them a rough mash. I also add a little salt & pepper to the potatoes.
  • 6Top mixture in 9x13 with mashed potatoes

    Top potatoes with some shred yellow cheese.
  • 7Bake at 400 degrees till heated through and top has browned a bit.
