only one side dish with elk / deer

Postby Wahpeton » 04 23, 2017 •  [Post 1]

Guys and gals,

if you can only have one side with venison, elk or deer, what would it be?

I'm torn....mushrooms compliment perfectly, but fresh asparagus wins for me.

let's weigh in.

Meat and tato guy for the most part here. Either a big twice baked tato at the house, or, fried cubed tatos with onions at elk camp. A stack of fresh mushrooms is also very good as you mentioned! In WA state, during the years we get some rain in SEP, the King Bolete's and Matsutake (pines) mushrooms are popping and both are extremely tasty when sided up with wild game!

Okay, maybe it is. Goes fine with pulled lion sliders.
