When this woman is weirded out by her dinner guests, she asks Reddit:
A couple weeks ago, my dad’s friend gave my dad some deer meat that he hunted last fall.
I guess he was wanting to get rid of it since it was getting a little old. My dad offered me some. It was vacuum sealed, stored in his friend’s deep freeze since November, and looked to be in good shape. I took some.
I had some friends over this weekend, and I thought it’d be cool to make something with the deer.
I made a Mexican dish called salpicon from the deer shoulder, where you cook and shred the meat and marinate it in citrus juice, and serve it cold with chopped radishes, cilantro, onion, etc.
Everyone liked it, but I’ll admit there was no way to know it was deer because it was shredded and marinated. I mentioned in conversation that I was making deer, so most people knew but I didn’t make it a point to tell everyone.
