You can use baby beef instead of venison. All game, including venison is strongly aromatic. Marinating will tenderize the meat and remove some of the smell that some people find too strong. Deer meat contains all the important vitamins at optimum values, as well as a good iron ratio (3.0 mg per 100 g). Lean venison contains 21% protein and 4% fat; energetic value is 120 kcal per 100 g.
