Venison is usually purchased frozen. It is available in many different cuts, such as steaks, roasts, brisket, stew meat, and ground venison. Tender cuts come from the ribs and loin, tougher cuts from the rump and shoulder. Chuck and shoulder are tasty cuts that make good pot roast or, if tenderized, can be eaten as steak. Ribs and rib-eye steaks are tender cuts that can be broiled or grilled. Shank and heel of round are bony leg cuts that make good venison stock for soups.
