Baked Venison / Beef Parmesan

"Delicious Italian flavors; extra cheesy for my kids! Any steak will work in this recipe, although I use 1/2 inch thick butterflies. I use either purchased spaghetti sauce or homemade Italian tomato sauce."

  1. I completely agree with "ckmclements", I used thin medallions and they still turned out great!
  2. The venison I had was essentially very thin deer medallions, but it didn't matter. This was really good, and definitely a new and interesting way to cook deer that's not plain ol' deerburgers or deer chili. Really easy to make for sure. Thanks for a great recipe!


I'm a stay at home mom with 3 adorable children-an 8 year old daredevil son, a 5 1/2 year old princess and a wild little 2 year old girl! I love to cook, and like having my little helpers in the kitchen! I usually love recipes that are completely from scratch (I still love them actually) but right now my focus is on having any kind of food ready by mealtime! It's a little crazy here lately. Every summer we have a huge organic garden, apple orchard and raspberry and blueberry patches, along with a woods full of wild foods waiting for me to learn what they are so I can collect them. I'm learning about wild mushrooms first, so if anyone has any tips, let me know. We also eat wild venison which my husband and I hunt ourselves. It's our favorite meat, since it's lean, organic and cheap! Some of my hobbies are: hiking, biking, rock climbing, gardening, playing in the water with my kids, or just swinging in the hammock with a good book. I go stir crazy if I spend too much time inside.
