I'm not going to take a word of Will Brantleys advice. Fried fawn cutlets? That's what draws people to his dinner table? Get bent! If I shoot a fawn that little sucker is definitely not getting fried. On to the next subject


I suppose you have a problem with veal scallopini? Straighten up! \:D


I don't have problems with fried food and I definitely will eat some fried tenderloin and biscuit but dadgummed if every dang article written about preparing venison dishes revolves around heating oil, breading meat and frying the crap out of it. Consider me a snob if you will but I refuse to lower my standards to routinely frying meat


I agree with that. I've had fried tenderloin before and it was great, but I have never fried any of mine and don't expect that I ever will. -just seems like a bit of a waste to fry such a delicate muscle. If I want to fry venison, I'll take steaks off the legs, pound them out real thin and fry them. Both cuts have the same flavor. The difference is, you can do things with a tenderloin that you cannot do very well with a steak, but you can easily fry both of them and accomplish the same ends, so why use tenderloin? At least, that's my thinking. I won't complain one bit if someone wants to fry their tenderloins, though.

I hear ya...we were killing 50-60 (one year we killed 70)deer per year in the late 80s-mid 90s between 10 people. Tenderloins were abundant. \:\)

I haven't fried any in a while. However, i am salivating right now...I's fire up the oil if I had one \:\)

Im going to have to disagree with you on the fried,may be its a southern thing, but fried anything is dang good,use crisco or lard,and on tenderloin put seasonings in flour and coat meat and fry,hard to beat imo,not saying frying is good for you but it is good eating.

Yes, fried anything is good, including fried tenderloin. I didn't say it wasn't good. I said that fried tenderloin isn't any better than a fried venison steak, but you can do all kinds of things with tenderloin besides frying that you cannot do with a venison steak.

Yep.

My cousin...ALL he wants to do is fry tenderloin...

Well, seein as he likes eating better than cooking - and I always have to cook, I never fry any. I was grilling the tenderloin often - medium rare - which, of course, he griped as he wanted his burnt into what I consider shoe leather.

However, I began browning them in a cast iron skillet and placing them in the oven a little bit to finish and found I like that much better. Just so it's medium rare is all.

Fried tenderloin is good if you have an abundance of them or if somebody else wants to cook theirs but I choose to do other things with mine.
