Creamy Deer Meat with Lemongrass

So when its hunting season I love checking out our local meat processing if they have some deer meat.  We pay for the process if no one claims, and take it home.  The other day my mother-in-law called one of the meat processing and she bought a bunch of deer meat.  We end up splitting the cost and also divided the meat that we got. Deer meat is something that we love having each year, we try to make the meat we buy last until the next season.

The other night my husband requested for some deer cube for dinner.  I wasn’t sure how I’m gonna cook it, however, I came up with this recipe that I thought my husband will love.  Creamy deer meat with lemongrass, yeah you hear that right.  I included the lemongrass in this recipe.  Lemongrass is used in a lot of dishes in the Asian cuisines.  We even use lemongrass in soups, teas, and curries.   The lemongrass added a really nice taste to the deer meat, and it smells really good as well.

Chicken Sisig

Chicken sisig is very popular in the Philippines.  To make the sisig is not hard at all, it’s spicy but you can control how spicy you want it.  Chicken sisig is great to eat over rice or even using taco shells.  Originally the recipe called for pork, however, since my husband cannot eat anything with pork I choose to use chicken instead.  You can also use tuna on this recipe, or even beef.

I have to be honest, this is the first time I have ever made chicken sisig.  The result was amazing, my husband loves it a lot, he ate this with taco as a burrito.  And for me of course, I ate this with brown rice.  Chicken sisig is originally from Pampanga.  The original recipe called for pig head and liver.  However, most of the people nowadays they use the ears or pork belly.  This is seasoned with calamansi and chili peppers.

Since I don’t have any calamansi I just lemon juice.   I didn’t want this chicken sisig to be spicy, so my daughter can eat it.  I used some jalapeno peppers and some serrano peppers. You can add as many hot peppers as you, it all depends on how hot you want your sisig.  In the original recipe, they use the green chili peppers and red chili peppers.   However, since I didn’t have those available I just used whatever I have in my kitchen already.  Read more
