Venison or deer meat may not often be part of your menu for dinner, but it is something that you need to consider serving frequently because of its great nutritional value. Venison roast, grilled venison steaks, barbecued venison chops or creamed venison are tasty treats whether you are having dinner in a fine restaurant or having a special home cooked meal.
First, let us take a look at the nutritional content of venison. This meat is rich in vitamins B2, B3, B6 and B12. It is also a good source of iron, phosphorus, selenium, zinc and copper. Second, as compared to other types of meat, venison is a protein source which is relatively low in saturated fat.
