This venison burger recipe is a snap. It can be thrown together as you are heating up the grill, or mixed up and placed in the fridge overnight to “marinate.” Either way, it is best if you can let the meat sit out for at least one hour before placing on the grill. This will help the temperature to rise and result in more even cooking. Even cooking is important for burgers, but especially for venison.
In a medium bowl, whisk the egg then add Worchestershire sauce, olive oil, bell pepper, onion and venison and mix together. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty, because you will have to anyway! Divide the mixture into four equal parts and hand-form the four generous-sized venison patties. Lastly, season the burgers to your liking with salt, pepper and garlic.
The venison burgers should be placed on a charcoal or gas grill with about medium-high heat. Cook the burgers for seven to eight minutes and then flip for another seven to eight minutes. Venison is lean, so cook the burgers until they are just done, then remove them from the grill at let sit for about three to four minutes before building your perfect, loaded venison burger!
