Warm butter and olive oil in large skillet
over medium high heat. (Be careful not to get it too hot.) Salt and pepper back strap on each side. Sear each side of steak quickly. (Do not overcook. Meat should be medium rare.) Place the venison in a oven safe pan and place in oven on warm. Add the shallots, and fresh ground pepper to the pan. Add brandy to the pan to de-glaze. Be careful, as brandy is flammable.

Venison Back Strap Steak with Morel Mushroom Recipe


1 pound of venison backstraps cut ½ inch thick
½ pound morel mushrooms
1 clove garlic chopped fine
grape or current jelly
1 ½ cups sherry
Olive oil
2 strips of bacon cut into1/4 to ½ inch pieces
4 tablespoons butter

The first and usually most difficult step is to locate a few morel mushrooms. Soak morels in saltwater for and hour to help remove bugs and other debris. After soaking remove them and pat them dry. Slice morels into quarters. Dry meat and toss in flower. Shake off extra flour. In a large pan add olive oil and brown venison over medium heat, salt and pepper as they brown. Do not overcook, venison should be medium rare. Remove from pan and place the venison in the oven on warm. Place bacon in pan and fry until crisp. Remove bacon and set aside. Add morels to the pan and sauté until they begin to brown. Add large spoonful of grape or current jelly. Stir until jelly begins to dissolve. Add sherry to pan and simmer until reduced, stir in butte, add back bacon and steaks bringing up the heat. Serve hot.

This venison steak recipe combines the rich earthy flavor of morels with the wonderful wild flavor of venison.
