We eat a lot of venison in our house and I am always looking for new ways to serve it. Unfortunately, this isn't exactly what I was hoping for. BBQ led me to believe it would be a bit tangy, but I didn't feel this had much of a BBQ taste. The onions overpowered the venison. I even added only one onion, and they were still too overpowering, and we even like onions :) I could see where this recipe would be really good with a really "gamey" piece of meat as the onions would disguise the game flavor. We did enjoy it, hence the 4 stars, but it wasn't quite what we were looking for. I served this with Parmesan-mustard Mashed Potatoes Recipe #49073 and they seemed to be a nice mix in flavors. Thanks a bunch! :)
