  1. Heat oil in a heavy skillet, over medium to medium-high heat. In a large bowl, stir together the crushed crackers, garlic powder, onion salt, salt and pepper. Beat the egg in a small bowl.
  2. Dip the venison cubes into the egg, then into the crumb mixture to coat. Fry in the hot oil until browned on all sides. Dissolve the bouillon cubes in the boiling water and pour into the pan. Add the onions and mushrooms. Lower heat, cover and cook until the meat is tender, about 15 minutes - add more water as needed. Dissolve cornstarch in cold water, and stir into the sauce. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened.

deer was from indiana...egg was from the neighbor...Borrowed everything...but i ate it all! it was delicious!

Good flavor but kind of a mushy dish. Mine came out a little oily but meat tasted good.

I liked the idea of coating the venison first -- tasted so good and was a hit with my husband! I usually just shake the meat in flour before cooking, but this was different. Thanks.

I made this for husband and he thought it wasn't bad. I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I also substituted canned beef broth. The sauce was good, but the meat didn't turn out as tende...
