Venison Marsala

3 posts in this topic

Had this again tonight with steaks from my first bow buck and was awesome. I think this will work on making even the toughest old bruiser tender. Though mine was a young'un. I adapted from FoodNetwork Recipe (Rachel Ray's veal marsala).

First, dethaw about 3 pounds of steaks and pound flat with a meat mallet or pierce really good with a tenderizer (my preferred method). Make sure they're good and flat. Season them with salt and peper. Dredge LIGHTLY in four and sear on each side for 2 minutes in a hot frying pan with some olive oil and butter. Once done frying all the steaks, keep them in a pan in the oven at 200 degrees or so.

Next, add a couple of packages of pre-sliced portobello mushrooms to the pan with some more olive oil and sautee for 5 minutes. Then add 2 cups marsala wine (can get cheapo stuff from liquor store) and 1 cup beef stock. Stir good to get all drippings and stuff worked up from pan into sauce. Bring to boil and shut off.

Finally, put the steaks over cooked egg noodles and pour the mushrooms and sauce over all of it. This is good eatin' and the dish friends an family rave about the most with my venison.

Sounds good. you say 2 minutes each side---are you then just keeping them warm by placing in the oven at 200 while you prepare the portabello's and the noodles? Also, how flat (thickness) are you pounding the steaks--1/4 inch, 1/2 inch thick? Please confirm. thanks.

Corey, you pound them pretty thin, probably a quarter inch or slightly less if possible. And yes, I keep them in the oven to keep them nice and hot until you assemble the whole dish just before putting on the table. I also find 200 degrees is a good temp to cook them just a little bit more but not too much to ensure they are just done - i.e. and not undercooked for the old folks and small children who could get really sick from having their meat too rare.

I typically do not like just plain deer steaks reheated the next day or any type of steak for that matter. But this dish is good microwaved the next day if there are any leftovers.

    • 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.
