Really hot, really fast. Keep it way rare, and enjoy the flavor for what it is. Avoid marinades. Salt, pepper and enjoy.

My hunting buddy and dear friend has the tradition of preparing the tenderloins at rifle camp. He slooooow cooks all of the tenderloins in butter and lots of seasoning til they are good and gray. It's everything I can do to keep my mouth shut, but it's his home and his deer camp. frown

When bow hunting, I've been known to wrap them on a stick and cook over the fire like the worlds greatest marshmallow. grin

As noted above, I personally sautee some shrooms/grn peppers/onions if you like that kind of stuff, and throw it on top for some added goodness.

I agree with the "hot and fast, on the rare side of medium rare" part.

I like to do mine in a frying pan, cut in half (4 peices if doing both, or 2 if alone) with a table spoon of butter and a table spoon of olive oil. Sprinkle the loins with McCormics Montreal steak and go.

When the loins are cooked I deglase the pan with Segram's 7 and a little water (mostly Seagram's). Add a little heavy cream or half and half, and a couple pinches of flour to thicken the "gravy".

Serve it family style over a bed of rice, mabe some grean beans or a salad on the side.

A meal fit for a King...

I just made some tonite that were quick, easy and delish....

I hit each steak with Emerals Essence( you could sub - salt, pepper, and garlic powder). Then I floured each steak....

In a fry pan on med heat cook some onions in a little olive oil for a few minutes. Now add the steaks and fry about 2 min per side. Then throw in a bout a half cup of white wine and a few table spoons of pesto. I use the prepaied store bought pesto all the time - either a mushroom one or sun-dried tomatoe type. A few squirts of franks red hot, stirr it around and she's done...

Dark Cloud, I've never tried t-loins with a Pesto and hot sauce combo before but it certainly sounds like it would be good. I'll give that one a try next fall on some fresh ones.

At least most people aren't overcooking them. I hope.

Freewheeler - The pesto I used was a mushroom one and was nice and mild, just enough hot sauce for a touch of heat. The wine added a nice flavor that balanced things well. Ive cooked quite a bit with wines in my restaurant experience and really enjoy them. Usually a sweeter or semi-sweet matched up with some bolder spicy flavors or a hearty red in something like a stroganoff. Don't buy "cooking" wines, you want to cook with stuff thats drinkable... cool

Darkcloud,

I've made a few of your recipes and you should put together a cook book. Every one I have tried has turned out great especially the venison cubed steak with sour cream.

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
