Hunter’s Venison Ranch Patty Melt

Hunter’s Venison Ranch Patty Melt

BY MICHAEL PENDLEY AUTHOR OF TIMBER 2 TABLE 

Like most teenage boys, our soon to be 15-year-old son, Hunter, eats a lot. I mean an amount on par with an average family of four. Luckily for us, he loves to cook and to tinker with recipes. This Venison Ranch Patty Melt is one of his creations, and one of his go-to recipes when he is cooking.

Hunter with one of the three whitetails he has taken so far this season.

He recommends Texas Toast for the bread and sharp cheddar cheese with caramelized onions to top the patty melt. While he grills the patty melts from time to time, his favorite cooking method is seared in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.

Serve the patty melt on Texas toast.

For best results, use venison ground with a little added fat. For burgers, we like 75 percent venison ground with 25 percent bacon for a nice smoky flavor.

 

Timber 2 Table Recipe

Prep Time

15 minutes

Cook Time

30 minutes

Ingredients

3 pounds ground venison (try bacon ground with 25 percent bacon for this one)

1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch dry seasoning mix

¼ cup Worcestershire Sauce

1 Tablespoon kosher salt

1 Tablespoon black pepper

Toppings

Caramelized onions

Sharp cheddar cheese

Cooking Instructions

Mix ranch seasoning packet, Worcestershire Sauce, salt and pepper into venison. Divide meat into six 8-ounce patties. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat with one teaspoon of vegetable oil. Place two or three patties, depending on skillet size, into the pan. Cook, without flipping, 7-9 minutes on the first side until moisture droplets push up through the top of the patty. Flip once, cook for an additional three minutes then top with a slice of cheese. Cover pan until cheese is melted, move patty to lightly browned Texas Toast, top with onions, and serve.

Try grinding the venison with a little bacon for added fat and flavor.

Travel

Finding Relaxation in the Most Remote Locations of All

It is a fact that the largest travel locations are also beyond popular. Among the downsides of this fact is that when you’re looking for peace, quiet, and basically a chance to do nothing more than spend time with yourself and, perhaps, one other best friend, the most popular places don’t offer that. In other words, it is the most remote (sometimes most beautiful) spots out there that you want to visit. If so, here are just a few that are there for the taking:

Business

Add Value with Summer Home Renovation Projects

There are a whole list of summer activities for you and the kids planned. Most of them, of course, you want to be nothing but fun, such as grilling outside on the patio or swimming in the pool. However, having the backyard pool and patio are two things you really need in place before either of those activities could be enjoyed. And building this area could be a great summer project in order to not only get the house you really want, but add value to the home for a future sale.

Entertainment

Raunchy Adaptation of Classic TV Series Arrives on Home Video

Whenever a classic television series is made into a movie, the buzz always seems to be about whether the screen version will be a creative variation on the theme or merely a campy, cornball, take-the-money-and-run ripoff trading in familiar formulas and shopworn cliches. After all, for every inspired adaptation like Batman (1989), Charlie\’s Angels (2000) and 21 Jump Street (2012) there are just as many bitter disappointments, al a Dragnet (1987), I Spy (2002) and Get Smart (2008).
