How to Make the Best Venison Burger

How to Make the Venison Burger

Every venison lover needs a go-to burger recipe — this is it. Made with Silver Fern Farms Pasture-Raised Premium Ground Venison, this burger recipe always turns out completely and utterly satisfying.

We season it with the likes of Worcestershire sauce and cayenne pepper to highlight the venison’s savory, naturally peppery flavors. And then we gently mix everything together until it’s just combined, which keeps the meat nice and tender so it grills up extra juicy every time.

But the most important tip of all with this venison burger? Don’t be afraid to pile on the fixings!
