A great recipe, but I must say: salt is required, at some point. I'd salt the meat when I pepper it for sure. I'd probably add a little salt to the gravy, too. Also, I used three medium onions (on the largeish side) and it was definitely onion overload, so I'd probably use two next time. Of course, that is all a matter of personal taste. Otherwise, great recipe, and I appreciate you sharing it! :)

This was DELICIOUS! I added more garlic & used more butter to create the sauce but my foodie husband LOVED it! This will definitely be made very often!

Very, very good. I only used 1 large onion sliced thin. I added salt and pepper. Everything else is as the recipe is written.<br/>This is an amazing dish! Thanks for sharing.

This was delicious, as promised. My variations on the recipe -- I marinated the meat for about 8 hours in advance in a mixture that would work for beef -- I included some crused garlic and dried rosemary in the marinade. Marinating overnight would probably be even better. I discarded the marinade before cooking the meat. During the cooking process I added dried rosemary to the skillet. My husband and I enjoyed the results. Thanks!

Excellent dish. Added some crushed red pepper to the gravy for a kick. Will be making this again.

This is a great recipe! I made this as written, and it was a huge hit. The sauce is YUM! Dh was in venison heaven. We have a lot of deer meat so this will be used a lot. Thanks for posting!

This is wonderful! I made one addition to the sauce...I substituted 1/2 cup of Merlot for part of the water (our preference). DH hummed through his dinner. Thank you for posting!
