      Awesome recipe! My wife is not usually too keen on trying new things but she loved it. I used meat from the shoulder and neck. I posted a picture of the end result.

      This was excellent. I used backstrap and cut it up into little medallions and followed the directions as written. It was FANTASTIC! I am really trying to eat more lean game meats and this works beautifully, is hearty, and actually great for you. Thanks for posting!

      Wow, this is delicious. Instead of cubbing the meat I used about 3 lbs venison chops and left them whole with the bone in. I followed the same instructions for the rest of the recipe. I will add this recipe to my wild meat recipe cookbook at home. This was enjoyed by hubby and kids also. I made an account here just so I could rate this recipe :)
