This is based on a recipe from the book, Venison, Recipes from the Readers of Sports Afield, a book my DH and I purchased recently at LL Beans in Freeport, Maine. Henry Sinkus, its editor says, "Simple and elegant, serve with fresh vegetables and steamed potatoes." Even in Maine this isn't a cheap dish -- we serve it around the holidays.
