    Got some deer meat from the guy who sold me my property. Plan on getting my own this year. I've searched the web and found a lot of recipes, but I'd like to hear from those on the forum. Also, include your best summer sausage recipes as well... thanks.. I'll start.. Here's one I had tonight.. didn't turn out quite as good as I'd like.. might try again with some maple flavored bacon.. Venison Steaks
    1/2 lb bacon
    1 lb venison steak
    2 cups water
    black pepper
    1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
    Cut pieces of venison into 1 - inch squares.

    Take a thin slice of bacon and cut it just long enough to wrap around the meat.
    Secure with a toothpick.
    Make about 2 dozen pieces.
    Put in a heavy skillet.
    Add water, salt, lots of black pepper and worcestershire sauce.
    Boil rapidly until liquid is nearly gone.
    Reduce heat and cover skillet; continue cooking at low heat until meat is brown.
    The meat will be very rich.

    Try the same recipe again, but instead of the Worshire (ain't even gonna try to spell it) use apricot jelly instead. You can cook it on the grill or in the oven too. I like it on the grill. Just put the jelly on a minute or so before the steaks are done.

  4. One of my favorites:

    1 whole tenderloin nicely trimmed
    A1 Classic Marinade sauce
    1 Red Pepper
    1 Green Pepper
    1 Onion
    Cavanders Greek Seasoning

    Slice the red and green peppers along with the onion. Next place the tenderloin in a large Ziplock bag next pour in the Marinade sauce and add the peppers and onions. Place in the fridge for at least 24 hours. Next get you grill ready for about medium heat. Take the tenderloin and place it in a cradle of tinfoil w/ the peppers and onions on top. Take the leftover marinade and bring it to a boil on the stove and then use it to baste the tenderloin w/ while cooking. Also, season w/ cavenders to taste. Each side takes about 15-20 minutes. Don't overcook....Enjoy....

    take loin stakes about 1"to1.5"

    Marinade in lowrys steak and chop marinade

    Grill to medium rare

    While grilling saute mushrooms in olive oil and chardonay, be liberal with the chardonay and cover while sauteing.

    When everything thing is cooked pour the mushrooms and sauce right on top of the steaks

    Oh man :bangin: no i'm hungry

    tenderloin crowns

    i made these tenderloin crowns at the big cat roundup. first when you butcher your deer you leave the ribs attached to the backstraps, a good meat saw works fine for cuttin the ribs from the spine, the ribs make it a crown roast, so they say, anyway, i like them done terriaki style, soak them in kiko soy, alot of garlic, brown sugar, and rice wine, (kinda spensive so a good white will do also) black pepper and a shot of rice wine vinegar. thats the acid that helps break down the meat and make it more tender. be carefull not to use citric acids as they tend to give the meat a grainy texture kinda like liver. soak for 24 hours plus, i then grill the crown using a fruit wood , apple, peach and maybe a bit of hickory. dont over grill, medium rare is what ya want. ask Parker if he liked them.

    For roasts nor more than 1 1/2" thick (or steaks). Rub down with extra-virgin olive oil, pat on rosemary, thyme and garlic.
    Grill until med-rare at MOST.
    Like young lamb.:stirpot:
    My ole man used to over-sauce everything. I didn't start really liking deer until I began to cook it like veal or lamb.

    This one is AWESOME

    Classic Stroganoff

    1 lb of Venison Tenderloin or Steak, or use a boneless beef sirloin steak
    8 oz. Sour Cream
    2 Tbsp. Flour
    1/2 cup Water
    2 Tsp. Instant Beef Bouillon
    1/4 Tsp. Pepper
    2 Tbsp. Butter
    1 1/2 cups Sliced fesh Mushrooms
    1/2 cup Chopped Onion
    1 clove Garlic, minced
    4 cups hot cooked egg noodles

    Cut venison or beef, across grain, into 2 x 1/2 inch strips

    Mix sour cream and flour in a small bowl. Stir in water, boullion, and pepper; set aside.

    Melt butter in large skillet on medium-high heat (adding a splash of olive oil will keep your butter from burning). Add 1/2 of the meat, cook and stir until meat is cooked. Remove meat from skillet. Add remaining meat, mushtrooms, onions, and garlic to skillet. Cook until meat is cooked through and onion is tender. Return all meat to skillet and reduce heat to medium. Add sour cream mixture and cook until bubbly, stirring constantly. Cook an additional minute. Spoon over hot egg noodles and enjoy.
