"Here's a tasty way to serve venison! I brown pieces of venison in butter, then braise it with sauteed mushrooms, white wine, and seasonings. This is good served with mashed potatoes or ladled over rice."

  1. Melt half of the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the venison cubes until browned, then remove and set aside. Melt the remaining butter, then cook the mushrooms until they release their liquid. Stir in the white wine, and simmer for 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in the beef broth, green onions, and reserved venison. Season with parsley, onion powder, and garlic powder. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until venison is tender, about 2 hours.

This recipe is awesome. I always run out of ways to cook venison, which is why I chose this and I'm glad I did. I had to change a few minor things just for lack of ingredients in the household...

Loved this! the only thing i changed was to use diced garlic instead of powder. THe key ingredient to this dish is the wine;it tenderizes the venison. thanks for sharing

nice sauce for deer tenderloins. Very tasty and it did not overpower the meat with too many additional flavours. Thanks for the recipe

I changed the recipe a little bit. I took all of the ingredients called for and stuffed it in a crock pot. I turned it on low for the day. I did put regular garlic instead of the powder, and ...

I had never cooked venison before, and was not sure if I would even like it, but this recipe was awesome! I didn't simmer it for nearly as long as it suggested, and it still came out great!

This turns out almost like venison stew and I've gotten similar results with a lot less work. We used several different kinds of mushrooms which made it more interesting. Used Jacob's Creek Ch...

What a wonderful change from our usual fried venison. After we made this we gave the recipe to three different hunters in the family. It was absolutly fabulous. I added a little corn starch to t...

This was sooo good! Thank you for sharing. I will use this one again. It will be a great recipe to make when we have guests that say they don't like venison. I can't imagine anyone not likin...
