Chinese Style Stir Fry Venison

It is not everyday that I get to cook venison at home . I was lucky enough to get some deer meat from the Government Agro farm @ RM30/kg.   Most of the time ,we will order this dish from the restaurant when we eat out.  So this is my first time cooking this dish at home. Stir fry venison chinese style with lots of ginger slices and black pepper and chinese cooking wine.  Hmmm may not taste as good as those served in restaurants but for the Piggies this will suffice for the time being until this Momsie mastered the art of cooking venison  :))  Meanwhile the photos are for drooling ......  ^*

  2. Very common in restaurants and char-chu eateries here, not really expensive. But theirs different from yours...

  3. Don't get to stir fry much venison here! What a great way to make something "heavy" light.

  4. Mmmm...I am drooling over this dish!

  5. Whoa, venison, that sounds fancy! This dish looks great, and what cool thing to make at home. It must have been a lot of fun.

  6. Elin, this looks wonderful. If the venison is tender or cut thinly I would imagine this is delicious. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
