Venison Hash Skillet

I’ll be honest, I made up the name of this recipe just based on what I felt like it should be called!  We don’t eat beef very often, if we make recipes that do call for beef, we substitute with venison.  I think that’s why I’ve enjoyed hunting more and more over the years because we eat venison so often!  And it feels extra good knowing it’s your own deer meat you’re cooking for dinner.  You’re welcome to use whatever meat you prefer for this recipe, but if you make it like the Janis household does, we use ground venison!  Hope you enjoy another one of my go-to recipes!


  • 3 small sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 pound ground venison
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil, or whichever cooking oil you prefer
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese, whichever you prefer I like to use just a simple Colby Jack
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 1 cup quinoa, cooked


  1. In a large skillet, heat avocado oil over medium-high heat.  Add minced garlic and let simmer for about a minute, then add the ground venison.  Cook thoroughly until browned.
  2. Add salt and pepper.
  3. Add the sweet potatoes, and water.  Cover the skillet and let simmer for about three minutes.  Add the bell peppers, and cook until sweet potatoes are soft.
  4. Remove lid,  top with shredded cheese and allow it to melt.  Garnish with parsley.
  5. Scoop the venison hash over the cooked quinoa, and enjoy!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Lifestyle Blog! Thank you so much for coming to my site to learn a little more about me and our family. I am 29 years old, (oh my goodness almost 30...), and have been married to my amazing husband, Jeff, for five years. I am also a mom! Carter James is our adorable, little blondie who is three, and Payton Jeanne is our baby girl who just turned one this past July. Bella is our yellow lab, and Chuckles is our cat. Of course I had to mention the fur babies because I'm sure they will come up in this blog at some point. I've been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, and I think God finally gave me the courage to do it. I have always enjoyed writing, and while this is new to me, I'd love to share a little more about my life with you. My hope is for you to read this blog and feel like you're having normal conversation with me, so feel free to ask questions and make comments! I look forward to sharing our former NFL family life, mommy tips, recipes, favorite bible verses, and more. Looking forward to sharing the next play with you!
