HCG Phase 2 – Venison Entrees

Venison is a wild meat, so it is assumed that Dr. Simeons did not make it a larger part of his experiments when working on the HCG diet. However, patients have had great success using venison on Phase 2 of  the diet as it is much leaner than beef. The most important information to absorb from this post is that venison is DELICIOUS!! YUM!!!

South of the Border Venison Steaks

2 100 gram pieces of venison

3/4 t. fresh lemon juice

3/4 t. chopped fresh cilantro

1 1/2 t. All-Purpose Seaoning

3/4 t. chili powder

 

Combine lemon juice with chopped cilantro. Mix together steak seasoning and chili powder in a small bowl. Rub the seasoning blend onto both sides of the steaks. Grill on med-high heat for 5 to 8 minutes on each side to achieve medium doneness. To serve, transfer to serving dish and top with juice mixture.

Servings: 2 proteins
