Default RE: Best venison recipes

Here a few I have on file. Unfortunately my own receipes are not in measurements persay as I cook by feel(how I am feeling that day).

Bacon Wrapped Backstraps(my own)
Trimmed medallions of venision cut 3/4-1" thick
Season to liking(I use garlic powder, season salt or sea salt, fresh ground pepper or montreal steak spice & cajun spice)
Slice a slot in each medallion to place a sliver of garlic (fresh and raw)
Wrap in natural smoke flavoured bacon (around outer edge)
Place wrapped medallion on skewer (hold the bacon in place)
5-10 minutes a side on the BBQ on med. heat (cook rare - med-rare)

Can merinade the meat(if preferred) for 12 hours in a red wine/beer base with garlic and perferred spices. Rotate at the half way point. Very simple, moist dish that will appeal to even the most wary of wild meat dish folk.

Grilled Venison with Beerbecue Sauce

2-2 1/2 pounds venison steaks, loins, etc.
1 tablespoon Lawry’s Seasoned Pepper
1 tablespoon Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
3 cloves fresh garlic, minced

Beerbecue Sauce
makes approximately 2 cups
2 tablespoons butter
1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 12-ounce beer, pour into a large cup and then back and forth into another cup until beer flattens and foam is gone – I prefer dark beer
1 lemon, sliced into rings
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 cup tomato purée
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/4 cup cider vinegar
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Season meat with next three ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for one hour. Grill over hot coals to rare or medium-rare temperature. Just before meat is removed from the grill, baste with a little sauce. Serve sauce on the side or drizzled over a portion of the meat. Allow meat to rest a few minutes before slicing.

Prepare sauce. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add brown sugar and garlic and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients except salt and pepper. Stir well, bring to a boil and then simmer until sauce thickens. The sauce should be the consistency of thick tomato sauce


3 lb venison stew meat
1 c onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 c red wine vinegar
1/2 c Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp Lawrey's natural choice seasoning for meat
2 tsp seasoned salt
1 lb seasoned bacon
2 cups catsup
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 c brown sugar

Place venison, onion, garlic, vinegar,
Worcestershire sauce and seasoning in crock pot.
Cook on high for 1 to 2 hours until meat is cooked.

Add bacon, catsup, molasses and brown sugar.
Turn crock pot on low and heat for the rest of the day.

1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp thyme

Add bouillon. Slow cook until meat is well done
and shreds easily with a fork.
Let water cook down to about one-half cup of liquid.
