Venison Mushroom Hash

  • March 1, 2016 /

This recipe puts a new spin on old-fashion hamburger hash by substituting ground venison for the ground beef and adding mushrooms. Venison hash is a pure comfort food recipe, which is a one-dish meal and is so easy to pull together and make. It works well as a brunch item or used for dinner and will have everyone in the family coming back for more. To round out the meal, pair it with a side salad, your favorite vegetable and bread.


  • 1 lb. of ground venison
  • 2 tbs. vegetable oil
  • 2 tbs. butter
  • 1 cup of onions chopped
  • 1 cup of bell pepper chopped
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tbs. seasoning salt
  • 1 lb. of mushrooms washed and sliced
  • 1 tbs. garlic powder
  • 1 tbs. onion powder
  • 3 large potatoes cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Nonstick cooking spray


  • Large skillet
  • Large bowl


  1. Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and add vegetable oil.
  2. Brown the ground venison until thoroughly cooked. Once done, remove meat from the skillet and place in a large bowl, allowing any remaining oil to remain in the pan.
  3. Add butter to the skillet and melt. Add cubed potatoes, seasonings and fry until almost done. Add another tablespoon of vegetable oil while cooking if more is required.
  4. Before potatoes get completely soft and done, add bell pepper, onions and mushrooms and continue cooking over medium-heat until potatoes are done and vegetable are just soft.
  5. Add cooked venison into the potato mixture, stirring well and heating through.

Recipe makes four to six servings.


  • Any type of mushrooms will work well in this recipe from portabella to button. If you don’t have fresh mushroom on hand, canned also work well just be sure to drain before using so you don’t add too much moisture to the hash.
  • If you have leftover cooked venison roast on hand, you can also use that by either shredding it or chopping it into 1-inch cubes. If using cooked meat, you can skip the first step of cooking the meat and add it after the potatoes and vegetable are cooked.
