A co-worker shared this recipe with me along with several packages of venison. This recipe works well with beef, pork, veal or other wild game (elk, buffalo, etc) in place of the venison. This dish is so easy to prepare, yet tastes like a four star restuarant dinner. Dig out the good china and candlesticks for this one!
