Dreamy Venison Steak is a melt-in-your-mouth venison steak pan-fried in butter and topped with a thick creamy mushroom and onion sauce. If you don’t fall in love with this all I can say is bless your heart.
This is so simple to make. Can you believe it only takes 10 minutes? Pop some rolls in the oven and throw a salad together and dinner is served.
You can use whatever cut of the meat you prefer for the steaks, but it’s best to choose tender cuts of meat, such as the backstrap, tenderloin, or tender cuts from the hams, such as the eye of round, or the top round (top sirloin), which is what I used in the picture above. I can usually get about four steaks from the top round after cutting away all of the sinew and dividing the sirloin into equal parts.
I always age my venison, which helps tenderize the meat amazingly. For this meal, though I really, really wanted a steak and I have TMJ and can’t normally eat steak, so I flattened the steaks with a meat hammer and used a handheld tenderizer to help it even further. This way, I had an extremely tender and thin steak. If you fix this recipe, please feel free to make your steaks however thick you desire.
You can also add seasoning to the sour cream, onions, and mushrooms, such as Creole seasoning or some Italian seasonings or if you like hot and spicy you could add a few drops of Sriracha sauce
The good, the bad and the delicious…
- Dreamy Venison Steak is very high in protein and high in potassium, fiber, and iron and has low carbs.
- Unfortunately, it’s also very high in saturated fat and cholesterol.
