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.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
