    Another favourite venison recipe. This recipe considers farm-raised deer which is readily available in better butcher shops, or some larger super markets. A favourite cook offers up this recipe, and can be found in "Lee Bailey's Cooking for Friends". I like Lee Bailey's recipes because he shops for fresh ingredients; I have tried to make a habit of doing just that for each dinner party.

      Toolie, this was excellent. I found a package of venison tenderloin stuck in the back of the freezer from last year and was so excited to try this recipe. The flavor of the sauce was so rich and complimented the tenderloin very well. Thanks for posting this winner.

      Outstanding! Now, this is the way to prepare venison tenderloin! I added more garlic and was pretty heavy handed with the pepper. I served this with garlic mashed potatoes and they devoured every bite. Thanks for posting!

      I would make this once a week if I could. I used the back straps for a deer taken down in archery season by a friend. It was dee licious! Hardly any gamey taste because the deer around here feed mostly on corn. Excellent wine sauce.
