How to make lean game meat unhealthy? Of course fry it! It is so worth it; by soaking the venison or any other game meat in the buttermilk, you can't really taste the difference. This can be served for breakfast with eggs and biscuits or for dinner with mashed potatoes.


1 lb venison steaks
1 c buttermilk
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour; plus 3 tbs flour
1/2 cups oil; plus 2 tbs bacon grease
1 1/2 tsp Salt
3/4 tsp pepper; fresh ground
1/2 tsp paparika

Original recipe makes 4



Tenderize the venison (or game) steaks with a mallet till they are 1/4" thick. Place in a zip lock bag with 1 c buttermilk and let soak 2 hours and up to 24 hours.

Heat 1/2 c oil in a cast iron pan, or other heavy pan over med hi heat. Whisk egg and 1/2 c milk in shallow bowl. In another bowl, mix 1 1/c flour with salt, pepper and paparika.

Using a fork remove marinated venison steak from buttermilk and dip into flour, coat both sides. Then dip into egg/milk mixture to coat, then coat with flour mixture again.

Fry in hot oil 3-5 mins each side, repeat with other steaks. Keep warm in oven.

For gravy, drain oil leaving one tbs of oil and brown bits. Add 2 tbs bacon grease, over med heat melt grease, add 3 tbs flour and whisk until mixture is smooth, hot and bubbly. Slowly add the remaining milk ( you may need to add more depending on how you like your gravy). Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Boil for 1 minute, add fresh ground pepper and salt to taste.

Serve over warm CFVS.

Very tasty and simple. Agree with earlier comments about adding more seasoning to the flour mixture.

This recipe is very easy. I would put a little more seasoning in the flour mixture if not serving with a gravy. Marinating was the longest part.
