Venison Piccata

3 posts in this topic

Made this dish tonite and it was a hit. We make it at the restaurant with pork or veal and sell a ton when we run it...

I took a whole deboned and silver skin removed venison loin and sliced it cross-ways in thin discs maybe a 1/4 inch to a tad thicker. I then pounded em quite thin and seasoned em with a little essence(or salt, pepper, garlic). Then dredged them in flour. I used about 15-18 pieces of venison for 3 people..

In a large saute pan with a little olive oil I started carmelizing some onions and mushrooms. I used a mix of shrooms or your favorite.(my girlfriend hates mushrooms but loved this dish). Add some salt and pepper while cooking them down and when they are almost to the texture you want add a few cloves of chopped garlic, then the juice of a whole or half lemon, and about a cup of white wine. Let that cook for a minute and add a half stick of butter. Now pour all that in a bowl.

Pan back on the stove with little more olive oil and place the steaks in there. After a miute flip em, after another minute dump the onion/ shroom mixture on top. Toss it all around and cook for another minute - shes done!

A traditional Piccata dish would be finished with capers. Im not a big fan of em - they taste like salty green olives?

Serve as is with sides of your choice or over rice. I like to finish the dish with some tarragon and grated parm cheese. If you wanted more liquid with this dish you could add some chicken broth...

    • You have no idea....               Suck it up, buttercup...  
    • That was obviously his Republican side...
    • lambjm - keep at it. If you do, you stand a great chance of fishing for possibly decades to come.    Inspirational to me, and hopefully others, is our 85 year old neighbor in Hovland who finished up logging our land this past spring. He logs in a one man operation every day, except Sundays, and a nice day every now and again to fish with his wife.    He has been logging continually for 66 years.   Like clockwork he gets to the landing everyday by 8:30, takes a 15 min break at 10:30, a half hour lunch break at 12, and a 15 min break at 3 before quitting at 4:30. A few days last winter I was out on the land making firewood and clearing trails, and could barely keep up with his schedule. He plans to keep at it as long as he is able.    My wife and I saw him last winter, as we rounded the corner of our road, standing atop a 10' pile of aspen logs with a cant hook or axe in one hand, waving with the other. He appeared as a man less than half his age in terms of agility and stature.   Genetics are a key, but staying interested and active in an outdoor activity is very important to a long and healthy life.     
    • That is because he was fooled into believing in trickle down economics and the idea that cutting taxes in and of itself would solve the budget problem.   Some are still fooled today.
    • Starve the beast, only the beast got stuff on credit.   Reagan didn't seem to be concerned too much about debt.
    • We already know Uncle Bill's response though:  
    • That is a very nice Pimple spear!   They are hard to find. I bought a couple of them from Jerry Kelm. He said Pimple used spring steel from hay rake tines to make the spear tines.    I have not seen one in person with chromed or nickel finish like that, but there is a picture of one that looks exactly like yours on page 215 of  the book "Ice Fishing Spears" by Marcel Salive. I actually wonder if it is the same spear. I heard Mr. Salive was selling off some spears about 5 years ago.    Are you going to be our tomorrow? If so PM me and I will bring the book out to give you a look. TS and I are going to out in the morning. 
    • Well, you were never very good at comprehension so your reply doesn't come as a surprise.
