Sauteed venison tenderloins and homemade beer cheese soup. Its a tradition at our camp. You need to get a deer to make that work though.

Our menu is still is not set but on Saturday night we will have stroganoff

Venison Stroganoff

2 pounds boneless venison loin or steak

1/4 cup butter

1 can (6 ounces) sliced mushrooms drained ( I add more cause I love mushrooms)

2 cans (10 1/2 oz each) condensed beef broth ( I have always used Campbells beef consomme)

1/3 cup dry minced onion

1/4 cup catsup

1 1/2 tea. garlic salt

1/3 cup flour

2 cup sour cream

Cut meat across the grain into 3/4" slices. then into strips 3 x 1/4". Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large skillet. Cook and stir mushrooms in butter about 5 min.; Remove mushrooms. In the same skillet brown meat. reserving 2/3 cup broth, stir in remaining broth, onion, catsup and garlic salt. Cover and simmer 15 min.. Blend reserved broth and flour; stir into meat. Add mushrooms, heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil 1 min, stir in sour cream; heat through. I like to serve it over noodles like a rotini so that the sauce stick to the noodles ( The corkscrew type)

Sunday I will put some smoked porkbutt in the crock pot and let it cook on low. Then we will shred it up and add some vinegar and red pepper flakes and put on a kaiser roll with some homemade Cole slaw on top.

I smoke the pork for 5 to 6 hours a couple of days ahead of time so all I have to do in the morning is add about a 1/2 cup of water and set on low and head out for the hunt. I also make the slaw the night before just because it seems to taste better.The last time I made this I used Thirdeyes recipe and everybody really loved this on there sandwich.

KFC Style Slaw

8 cups very finely chopped cabbage

1/4 cup shredded carrot

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. pepper

1/4 cup milk

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup buttermilk

1-1/2 tbsp. white vinegar

2-1/2 tbsp. lemon juice

Directions:

Be sure that the cabbage and carrots are chopped up into very fine pieces, about the size of rice kernels. Combine the sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar, and lemon juice and beat until smooth. Add the cabbage and carrots. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

Monday night will be fresh veni steaks on the grill with a potatoe bomb. Chopped up taters with onions and butter,salt,pepper all wrapped up in tin foil.Cook for around a hour and top with some Top the Tater.

One night was always put aside for;

Heart stoppers

1 lb bacon(I like Wicks bavarian or peppered)

2 lbs. ground meat

1 large onion

1 package fresh mushroom(morel or baby bella)

1 small package blue cheese or cheese of choice

minced garlic to taste

I prefer elk but venison or burger works[season or not]

cut 1 lb bacon in 1-2 in chunks and fry to desired crispiness

set aside on foil or in a coasting pan

drain off 3/4 of the grease[ save some]

chop onion

chop morel or baby portabella

Fry these two in bacon grease set aside with bacon.

Form meat patties and yes once again fry in bacon grease.

You can grill meat but at this point,whats the use?

Add garlic, bacon, onions and mushrooms once you flip the burgers.

Place meat on a grilled bun or roll,pile high with the fixens crumble a little blue cheese or cheese of choice.

Place "Nitro tabs" on table and enjoy.

We also are going with steaks.. Probably T-bones.

Did goose breasts for grouse camp. They turned out nice. I marinaded them in EVOO, Red Wine Vinegar, Garlic, and a splash of Terryaki for almost 24hrs. I pounded them really thin rolling cheese, onion, garlic, and bacon inside...wrapped the outside with MORE BACON. Cooked medium to medium well. Best goose breast I ever had.

When we make it in the crockpot I add the sour cream right before it is to be served. It make some of the most tender venison you will ever eat.

What is a sarma?

Sarmas are a traditional Iron Range, old-country, Croatian dish. Cabbage rolls are the closest thing that I can think of. My mom makes the best sarmas. I think she uses ground pork, ground beef, rice and her own secrets for the filling. Everybody's family has their own version of it. Some swear they should be with a tomato-based sauce while others say it's with sauerkraut. My great-grandmother, grandmother and mother made sarmas with sauerkraut...NO TOMATO! grin

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
