Well, another deer season has come to an end. The hunters have returned with their bounty and are hungry to eat it. At least that’s the way it is at my house. My husband usually brings back one deer a year, and if he gets more than one, he takes it to the processor and donates it to the program. There is quite a bit of meat on a good-sized whitetail deer, so we always have enough for us and some to share. As stewards of the land, this is our duty.
For Chicken Fried Deer Steaks, you will need…
1 lb. deer steaks, tenderized (tenderloin or backstrap)
1-1/2 cups whole milk
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
seasoning to taste
Venison is very similar to beef in regard to taste and texture. When cooked properly, sometimes people can’t even taste the difference. One of the best ways to ensure this is to soak or marinate the steaks in milk.
Next, prepare an egg wash by combining one egg and a half cup of milk in a pie plate. Set aside. In another flat dish, combine the flour and seasonings of your choice. A good steak seasoning with lots of pepper and a touch of cayenne does the trick at my house.
Finally, place your steak in a large skillet with just enough heated vegetable oil to cover the steak. I usually start with a medium high heat and gradually turn it down when I add more steaks. As the bottom of the batter begins to brown, it should be ready to flip over to cook the other side.
Once both sides have browned, remove from the skillet and let each steak rest on a plate for five to ten minutes. They will continue to cook and hold in the moisture. If you are unsure about the doneness of the steak, you can use a meat thermometer. A temperature of 145-160 degrees Fahrenheit will mean you have a medium to medium-well steak.
I hope you enjoyed this year’s deer season in Texas and are sharing your bounty as well.
From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
