Venison with Sherry-Mushroom Sauce

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  1. Combine 1/2 cup flour, sage, salt, and pepper in a resealable bag, set aside. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large pan over medium heat. Stir in onion and cook until almost soft. Add mushrooms, and continue cooking until soft. Remove from pan.
  2. Turn heat to medium-high and melt 2 tablespoons of butter in pan. Toss the venison steaks in the seasoned flour and shake off the excess. Sear venison in butter for 6 to 7 minutes per side and remove.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low, and melt the remaining tablespoon of butter. Whisk in 1 tablespoon of flour, followed by the sherry and water. Return the vegetables and meat to the pan. Increase heat, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Holy Butter, Batman! It seemed like a lot of butter when I was cooking the recipe. The butter flavor was very noticeable. If I make this again I will use half as much and sprinkle on some salt. This reminded me of chicken marsala, only with red meat. This would probably go well with noodles.

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!

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.
