spivak Posted October 1, 2012 Share Posted October 1, 2012 I must confess, while everyone raves about venison tenderloins, I find that they usually have an off taste. I take great pains to field dress and get deer skinned and hung as soon as I can. I try to keep the cavity as clean as possible. Yet; when we eat them; be it grilled, marinated, pan-fried or any method; there is an odd taste that I don't find in any other cut of meat. I marinated last week's fresh tenderloins and seared the medallions quickly before bringing them back into the pan with garden onions, garlic, cherry tomatoes, olive oil over pasta. The tips taste fine. But somewhere deep inside the meat is an odd taste. My 10 year old daughter ate them politely and then told me that she didn't want to hurt my feelings but the meat tasted odd.I am ready to be flogged but there you go. Tell me what I'm doing wrong.
