Deer Fried Rice

Suppose you’ve got some leftover rice and maybe a cup or two of venison. You’ve probably tried pork fried rice, so why not deer fried rice? It’s a great accompaniment for a wild game stir-fry. Next time you’re in the market, see if you can find ponzu sauce in the Asian section. It has less sodium than low-sodium soy sauce and citrus juice. Better flavor, less salt.
