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.

    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
