So I need some help with thinking of something to do with some deer meat i have and some alligator meat. I have a ton of cube steak deer meat. I have fried it with rice and gravy but i cant think of anything else to do with it. Does anyone have any ideas. I also just got some alligator meat for the first time since Alligator season was just opened up this year in SC. I wanted to know if anyone had any ideas of different ways to cook it and how to make it tender. I typically use deer meat to cook instead of beef because I can get deer meat for free. so any other ideas would be great. THANKS

Have never cooked with gator so can't help you there.  However, I often treat deer like beef and cook it that way.  It makes an awesome stew so tougher cuts can be cooked slowly in a stew.  I also have used ground meat in casseroles like sheppard's pie, or a pot pie with lots of root veggies and mushrooms, or moose meat in lasagna, etc.  DH likes to grill the steaks or pan fry them with mushrooms and onions.  We tend not to get to fancy with it.  The only thing is, with the venison up here, especially when they are killed getting their winter insulation, try to eat it when warm, because when the fat congeals, it's rather gross Tongue

I've never tried alligator (they don't seem to live in Minnesota)...

But, venison... yeah! 
If it's a nice cut of meat (tenderloin), you can marinate it in just about anything, then grill on high heat until just done (it gets dried out if overcooked, even just a little).
For 'stew meat', I just made a wonderful venison, vegetable, barley soup (treat it as you would beef).  It is great in stew (of course) and chili.  I've also had wonderful luck with slowly simmered curries.

I'm guessing Alligator & Crocodile would be fairly similar..  http://www.lifestylefood.com.au/recipes/recipe.asp?id=999

And a quick search came up with this page..  http://fooddownunder.com/cgi-bin/search.cgi?q=alligator

Thank you guys so much. I usually use deer meat for all kinds of cooking I dont ever buy meat in the grocery store really except for chicken. I have been trying to be more creative with it and have got some good ideas. Thanks MonkeyBrains for the websites the second one has soo many options so im excited. I might try to tackel the alligator tomorrow night. Wish me luck
