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.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
