The very first thing to be done is to eat the tenderloin the day it is shot, just slice it in about 1/4" pieces (medallions), dip it in flour and fry it in butter, its that simply don't ruin it by trying to get fancy and DO NOT OVER COOK IT.

Season steaks with olive oil and pepper seasoning. Grill to rare/medium rare - don't over cook!
Single Man Recipe: Put roast in crock pot, add one can of Coke, one jar of Chili sauce. Start crock pot on low in morning, come home from work and eat! Make potatoes and salad as sides.

Yep. The sugar gives it a sweetness n the acid takes some of the gamey taste out. Good for moisture too.

try double sarsparilla (think you blokes call it root beer) instead of the coke & french onion soup mix instead of the chilli.

Marinate in Italian dressing, grill to medium rare. This is also great on gamebirds , though cook thoroughly.

saturate in olive oil with some garlic, all day in a bag. I like to add some seasoning.....I personally like the Robertson Seasoning (Duck Commander) added with this mixture. Then fry it in olive oil with a pinch of pepper. Taste is amazing.

Congrats on your first deer young man.... It took me a lot longer to bag my first one. I might have been 18 when I shot my first deer...

I tenderize my non-tenderloin steaks with a meat tenderizer, pat them in flower, and fry them like liver in onions and portabellas. A little Lawrys, Garlic, and Slap Yo Momma cajun seasoning. Pretty good that way. Again though, as evrybody else stated, don't overcook so it doesn't get to dry.

Backstraps....Cut 1 1/2 thick pieces accross the grain and wrap the perimeter with Bacon hold it on with toothpicks. It is basically a filet mignon. (RARE) Cutting the backstrap up to fry with onions, IMO, is sacriligious!


Sirloin Tip...Roast that is shaped like a football if taken off right and whole. Unfortunately, they usually cut it up for stew meat (HUGE MiSTAKE). This piece is better than the tenderloins for the reasons below. Season and bake like a roast beef until 130 degrees in the center. Cool overnight. Find a friend who has a Deli meat slicer or a deli that is willing to slice it for you. Shave it thin, not paper thin, but thin slices.

1) Place a piece of Horseradish Cheddar on top of a cracker or thin piece of French Bread toast (Crostini) place a piece of the meat on top and serve as an appetizer.

2) On an onion roll, make a sandwich with it and top with Horseradish Cheddar cheese and Cole Slaw.

3) On american bread, just make a Hot Open Faced sandwich by heating some of the slices in a microwave put on top of the bread and smother with Brown Gravy.

I would never do that... In my post I stated steaks other than tenderloins. And yes, backstraps are virtually the same cut as a tenderloin. I will usually cut the Hind Quarters into steaks as apposed to leaving it as a roast. I can get a couple of roast out of the deer as well, but much of the Hind Quarter (like a New York Stip/Porterhouse in Beef) makes really great stakes. The reason I tenderize them and fry them is because they abviously are not as tender as the tenderloin/backstraps.

The backstraps are a New York Strip steak. They are called New York Strip because the tenderloin has been "stripped" to use as filet mignon. The difference between a Porterhouse and a T-Bone steak is the size of the tenderloin left attached. When the tenderloin runs out towards the head end you have a Club Steak. From the hind of the beef you get the Sirloin, Rump and Round steaks/roasts.

These are the steaks I refer to. I apologize, my dad is the butcher in the family. I usually just cut how he tells me to cut:) The round steaks, and sirloin are the steaks I will usually tenderize and bread and fry with the onions. I just ate tenderloins cut up and browned in olive oil two nights ago. I made a wild mushroom risotto to go with. It was pretty good. Everything from the front quarters legs is either cut up for stew meat or ground with a 50/50 mix of hamburger for jerky.

Cut any of the steak into pieces about the size of half of your palm. Wrap in half a slice of bacon ( I prefer thick bacon) and put two toothpicks through bacon and deer steak. Marinate in Dale's seasoning (http://www.dalesseasoning.com/) for a few hours and grill. You will never taste deer any better!

I cut the backstraps out for frying or searing, everything else I grind(though will sometimes cut a steak off the ham) with about 20-25% beef fat..

Tacos, burgers, meatballs and gravy, chili, meatloaf, stuffed peppers, etc.

We have the grindables made into cheddar meat sticks, brats, ring bologna and jerky. I like to cook up steaks and put them in Zatarain's Jambalaya or Dirty Rice...pretty good and easy. Simply pan frying with mushrooms, onions, and salt/pepper is tasty. I love venison...I probably have some form of venison at least once a day.

I cook most venison on the grill - after a 2 hour marinade of 1 cup of soy and 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce.
Grill at 300 deg. rare - med. rare.
Venison fat will coagulate quicker than beef, so be sure to have all sides ready before the meat goes on the grill. We often use baked beans and corn on the cob with buttermilk biscuits, or slice the venison thin and make a steak salad.

We had this last year on a pheasant trip, and it was by far the best deer I have eaten.

1 packet of lipton onion soup mix
4 packets of soy sauce
1 deer roast
cut up carrots
halved baby red potatoes
1 onion cut up
Throw all that into the crock pot with a cup or two of water and turn it on before you head out hunting.

When you get back pull out the roast and split it in equal portions, along with veggies and potatoes. Take the juice from the crockpot and pour it over the whole dish.

This an awesome hunting meal, hardly any prep time, and most of it can be done at home. It quickly became our go to hunting camp meal, until we ran out of deer roast's :cry:
