Sprinkle with garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, rosemary and moderately coat with olive oil and place in fridge for 2 hours. Pre-heat oven to 450 and get a skillet on high. Brown all sides of the backstrap in the skillet and place a piece of butter in the pan as your removing it from heat and spoon the butter over the backstrap. Then wrap in foil and place in oven for 6 minutes for medium rare. Goes well with mint potatoes, fresh corn-on-the cob and a nice glass of red wine. \:\)


That is pretty close to my favorite. However I like to cook it at room temperature. I do 2 minutes per side in a very hot skillet making sure to sear all surfaces.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup minced garlic

Marinade at least 1 hour longer is better and then grill on all four sides for 5min on a med temp grill...... depending on the thickness of your straps.. then let the meat rest for 5min if you can stand it...this works great on pork tenderloin as well.

I like TAFKAP's point about using rosemary stems in place of toothpicks. I do this quite a bit.

Agreed. Round steak cuts are for frying.

I have fried them before don't discount it altogether, its good breakfast eats! REALLY good.

...but at one time in Alabama we could legally take 200+ deer per year per person. still can still shoot over a hundred(not that I ever have come close to those numbers. Deer meat has never been an issue in the households I have lived in.
