Caveman Cuisine: Rudolph the Red Curry Reindeer

Spice up your wild game with red Thai curry and savory coconut milk sweet potatoes.


~3-4lb venison tenderloin
3-4 cloves garlic (smashed)
1 lime (juiced)
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
2 tbps coconut oil
Hass avocado (sliced)
2 tbsp Thai Red Curry paste (I prefer the Thai Kitchen variety)
12oz coconut water
1/4 cup red onion (diced)
1 bag frozen chopped sweet potatoes
Tapioca starch (if a thickener is needed)

Step 1: Marinate your meat

Marinate the venison in lime juice, garlic, and coconut milk overnight.

Step 2: Get sear-ious

In a large saucepan, melt 2 tbsp of coconut oil over medium heat.  Sear the tenderloin for 2-3 minutes on each side.

Step 3: Hurry with the curry!

Add the red Thai curry past to the coconut milk and garlic leftover from the marinade then mix in the coconut water.

Step 4: Braise on.

Add the coconut curry mixture to the saucepan with the meat.  Bring the mixture to a boil for 30 seconds and then cook covered for an additional 15-20 minutes or until desired doneness.

Step 5: Sweet AND savory

When the meat is finished cooking, remove it and cover.  Add the frozen sweet potatoes to the left-over coconut curry mixture.  Stir in red onions and bring the mixture to a boil.  Reduce the heat to a simmer and add tapioca starch as needed to thicken (~2-3 tbsp).

Step 6: Enjoy!

Add sweet potatoes to a serving bowl.  Add pieces of sliced tenderloin and avocado. (I also used a radish to lighten the mood of this dish.)
