Fried Venison (Deer) Steaks

Total Time
Prep 3 mins
Cook 7 mins

This is how I remember eating deer growing up. It is easy and I have never had any issues with a gamey taste. But if you are afraid of that you can soak you deer in milk for about 30 minutes. Great with fried potatoes and a salad. I like mine with steak sauce (57).

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb deer chops
  • 14 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon steak seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil (for frying)
  • plastic wrap


  1. Place steaks in between plastic wrap and pound out. I use the flat side of the meat mallet instead of the pointy side. I do not get too thin because it will dry out too much while cooking.
  2. Put seasoning in with flour.
  3. Dredge steak and fry in skillet.
  4. Cooking time is about 3 minutes each side. Enjoy.

I cook our deer meat the same way. The thing I so different to make the flour stick is: I dredge the meat in the flour and then in a milk and egg mix and then back in the flour again. Just as if you were cooking chicken. Taste great and makes a good crust. Make some gravy with your left over grease. Makes a great meal.

Very delicious! I actually used it on deer tenderloins which worked very well, but I didn't bother tenderizing them:) Good with Worscestershire sauce!

Had some deer chops in the freezer and wasn't sure what to do with them. I made your recipe with some gravy and potatoes and my family was in heaven. The kids didn't even raise an eyebrow when they found out they were eating deer meat. Loved it. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us, its a keeper.
