Venison With Mushroom Gravy Roast

Recipe by CHEF-BOY-I-BE
READY IN: 1hr 15mins


  • 4 -7
    venison tenderloins (I use 4-6 tenderloin steaks approx. 6-8 oz. per steak... can be varied)
  • 1
    yellow onion (cut into 1-inch sections)
  • 1
    large green pepper (cut into 1-inch sections)
  • 1
    large sweet red pepper (cut into 1-inch sections)
  • mushroom (thinly sliced, quartered, and halved)
  • 12
    cup green onion (chopped and separated)
  • 2
    (10 1/2 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup


  • Pan fry the venison (slowly with a low flame) in a lightly buttered pan until well browned. (I thoroughly cook my venison, and apply butter coatings to top sides to prevent drying the meat as it cooks. However, you can cook to your own preferences -- keep in mind this is a wild dish, hence my thorough initial cooking).
  • Add 1 tablespoons butter to separate pan to sauté following 4 ingredients (yellow onions through mushrooms). Sauté yellow onions in pan first, this will allow caramelization, and a full rich flavour of onions. After onions become tender, add the green pepper, red pepper, and mushrooms. Sauté all ingredients above until tender, and onions are slightly caramelized. Add 1/4 cup chopped green onions to sauté pan and simmer 1-2 more minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • After all ingredients are sautéed, remove from heat and place 1/2 evenly into a casserole dish creating a layer across the bottom of the dish. After tenderloins are cooked, remove from pan, and place on top of the bed of sautéed vegetables. Cover tenderloin with the remaining sautéed vegetables. Finally cover everything evenly with 2 cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup. The soups will create a wonderful gravy as it is cooked in the oven. Cover casserole dish with foil, and place into preheated oven. Bake for 45 minutes, or until gravy is slightly golden brown.
  • Remove from oven when finished and garnish with remaining 1/4 cup chopped green onions. Serve immediately to awaiting guests and family members!
