meat & potatoes

The taster was in food heaven. And I mean smiling was getting in the way of eating. I guess I need to make potatoes more often for him? Or perhaps it was the venison. Remember Mary Beth’s guest post on Venison? Well, we happened to be a lucky recipient of some venison. I have to admit, I was a little hesitant because it is not a meat I’m terribly familiar with, but it was delicious! Venison is a very lean meat, and was surprisingly SO flavorful!

Served along with some roasted fingerling potatoes and a side of asparagus, it made for the classic meat and potatoes meal, the type I suspect my grandparents had every night.

Sautéed Venison Backstrap

Season meat with salt, pepper and worcesteshire sauce. Sauté with sliced white onions and butter until cooked through.

    My brothers usually have plenty of venison this time of year, but I’ve never been a big fan unless it is in something like BBQ or chili. This is definitely a way to try it. It looks great!

    I tried to cook venison once and it was so hard! Maybe I am just used to steak fish and chicken? This looks awesome tho–Ill have to try it out :) Especially since every guy I know is a “meat-and-potatoes” kind of guy. Gotta love the midwest ;)

    What a great, healthy twist on a classic American meal. Delish! I’ve never had venison, but would love to try it sometime. Might be hard to find…

    Hope you’re having a good week!
