Recipe by Montana Heart Song
This is an updated version of my old recipe using ziplock bag and precooked bacon bits or pieces. The tenderness of the meat is because milk is used.This can be used with beef or buffalo also.
- 8 venison chops, with back bone or 8 venison, boneless steaks 3/4 inches thick
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon mccormick all seasoning
- 6 slices bacon or 1 1⁄2 cups bacon, precooked pieces and bits
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup green pepper, diced
- 1⁄2 cup cold water
- 1⁄4 cup flour or 1⁄4 cup rice flour
- salt and pepper
