"I came up with this recipe after my father-in-law gave us a bunch of deer meat. It covers the gamey flavor, so if you aren't into gaminess this recipe is perfect for you. Plus, it's fancy enough to serve to guests." — Karen D.

chopped Vidalia onion
sliced mushrooms or baby bellas
6 (3 ounce)
venison tenderloin steaks
This was VERY GOOD. I will make it again. Followed the recipe exactly as stated. Served with potato wedges and steamfresh white corn/baby asparagus/baby carrots. YUMMO
I did not like this recipe, although I did make a modification. I did not have sherry so I used Marsala wine instead. I used shallots instead of Vidalia onions. There was a VERY strong wine taste! Not sure if it would have been better with sherry. The meat was very tender though.
My boyfriend and I loved this. The only thing I did not like was there was not enough sauce. My boyfriend LOVES sauce of any kind & he puts it on everything. So I had to add extra wine, beef stock & cornstarch to make more sauce. Other than that it was fabulous!!
I made this recipe using venison back strap and increased the portions a little. It was great & my husband loved it. The baby bellas are best & next time I'll try a different variety of wild mushroom. Wild rice is an excellent side dish!
the cooking time is way off
This was delicious! Like some of the other reviewers here, my boyfriend and I are big gravy fans so I increased the sherry to 1 cup and subbed out the water for 1 cup of beef stock. Plenty of tasty gravy for pierogies on the side or a heap of mashed potatoes!
This was so yummy! I have been eating venison all my life so it is difficult to "wow" me with a venison related recipe. I really enjoy sauce so I added additional sherry, and a bit more water. For venison lovers such as myself, do not be concerned with what seems to be a long amount of cooking time that is recommended. The meat was still tender. Thanks! We just loved it.
We eat alot of venison and this was great!! The only thing I added was a little garlic. Will definately keep this recipe on hand.
