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...

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
