  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh-cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup onion, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, minced


  • 1/2 Tablespoon Avocado oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 4 ounces baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour or cornstarch
  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • black pepper and sea salt, to taste
  • chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  • In large bowl, add venison, bread crumbs, tomato paste, Worchestershire sauce, mustard, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, salt, onion, garlic, and parsley. Use your hands to combine well. Divide into 4 portions and make patties about 1/2 inch thick. Allow patties to rest for about 15 minutes
  • In large heavy-bottomed skillet, add avocado oil. When hot, add patties. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Flip carefully, and cook on other side for 3-4 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside. Cover patties to keep warm
  • Add onions to skillet and cook for about 5 minutes, until translucent. Add mushrooms and continue to cook for about 3 minutes, until softened. Stir in thyme, garlic powder and flour or cornstarch, and cook for 1 minute. Add beef stock, scraping bottom of skillet to remove brown bits. Add Worchestershire sauce, and bring mixture to a boil.
  • When gravy begins to thicken, turn heat down and add butter. Stir well until butter melts into the gravy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Return patties to gravy. Spoon gravy over patties and cook for 5-7 minutes, until patties are no longer pink in the center. 
  • Garnish with parsley. Serve with mashed potatoes, egg noodles, or root mashed vegetables
