Another recipe from the 2016 collection. If you hunt or know someone that hunts, here’s a great recipe for some of the deer you bagged. If you hunt like me -read that to mean hunt at your local butcher shop- beef works just as well.

From Jaymi and David


  • 1⁄2 to 1 pound venison tenderloin Kosher salt, to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1⁄2 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, finely diced

  • 1⁄2 cup beef broth
  • Dash of salt
  • 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 cup of sour cream, to taste
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives

  1. Clean all fat and silver skin from the venison. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside to come to room temperature.
  2. Preheat grill.
  3. Finely chop the mushrooms.
  4. Finely chop the onion.
  5. Put venison on the grill and cook as desired. Keep an eye on it while preparing the sauce.

  13. Reduce heat to low. Whisk in sour cream and horseradish.
  14. Whisk in milk to loosen up the sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the chives.
