Venison Pie Recipe

This classic, traditional, and easy venison pie is well known in our family and has always been a family favourite, even amongst the children. We are fortunate to live in a country where we have an abundance of venison.


We are spoilt for choice with venison varieties including Kudu and Springbok, Ostrich, and heck, even warthog gets a mention. It is hard to say which of these venison's are the most popular, but personally, I will say it goes down to Kudu, Springbok, and Ostrich.


There are distinct differences in the taste of the above-mentioned venison, and they all have different applications when it comes to recipes. Personally, I would recommend Springbok for this venison pie recipe, but any other venison should do the trick. Kudu venison is well known for sausage, droëwors (dried sausage), and biltong (jerky), and the same counts for Ostrich, except Ostrich meat, is also well known in stews, and other meat dishes.


Springbok is also a good choice of venison and works very well in this venison pie recipe, which is also one of our family favourite recipes.


Back to the venison pie recipe. It is popular throughout the country and you will most probably encounter the venison pie on the menu of quite a few restaurants, especially restaurants located in Game Reserves.


This venison pie recipe should be good for those who do not have the luxury of visiting any of these restaurants and taste just as good. Except, that you prepared it yourself. Your very own homemade venison pie recipe.
