Venison Steak Sandwiches

3 posts in this topic

This is a really simple way to produce some tasty steak sandwiches. I grew up with this as a staple for beef, but since I started hunting I adapted it to venison. The key is preparing the thin steak portions without making them tough or chewy.


1 to 2lb venison roast (round or rump)

1 large onion (or 2 medium)

Worcestershire Sauce





1. Freeze the venison roast (if you are like me you have a few usually in the freezer anyway).

2. Let it thaw for a couple of hours - just to the point at which it becomes a little pliable, but still mostly frozen.

3. Cut 1/4" thick slices - across the grain and downward at a 30 degree angle to maximize size and tenderness.

4. Pound them with a meat mallet (or a big heavy dish) so that they thin out to about an 1/8" thick. The meat will plump when cooked and come back mostly to it's orginal size, but will be far more tender.

5. Put a good amount of salt and pepper on each side. Most will end up diluted in a broth.

6. Sprinkle on some Worcestershire Sauce. Just a couple of drops per slice does the trick.

7. Place slices in a large skillet on medium-high heat for two minutes.

8. Flip and cook for another two minutes. Both sides should be browned, but not cooked all the way through.

9. Petal cut a large onion. Kind of like how they do a blooming onion, but cut all the way through. This makes all the onion pieces close to the same size.

10. Throw the onion on top of the steak pieces in the skillet.

11. Pour just enough water into the skillet to almost cover the onions.

12. Place a cover on the skillet and reduce heat to low.

13. Allow everything to simmer until the onions are tender and the water has turned a healthy shade of brown. I usually let this go about twenty to thirty minutes.

Cut up a roll of your choosing and serve up several steak slices on it. Pile on an obscene amount of onions (if you are married, that is the amount right between dirty looks and sleeping on the couch).

You can eat as is, or add steak sauce like I do.

It usually makes a great Saturday dinner, or can be easily made while camping.

I can attest to the awesomeness of this recipe. TMC is my room mate and this recipe has been one that just always comes out right. Mighty tasty. Just had it last weekend.

Sometimes those experiments with venison work better than they do with beef. One day you guys will have to ask nicely for the bourbon tenderloin recipe he has. Best tenderloin you will ever eat, no doubt about it.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
