| Deer &
Country Style Venison Steak
Roll deer steak in flour that has been seasoned with salt, red and black pepper to taste.
Fry meat in cooking oil until well done.
While meat is cooking, saute onion in a small amount of oil in a covered, large iron pot.
Then put meat aside, and pour off all but a small amount of grease. Brown 2 Tbsp flour in the grease, stirring constantly. Add enough water to make soupy, and pour this into the sauteed onions. Add enough water to make gravy, and then add the meat.
Cover and let simmer 45-60 minutes, or until meat is tender.
Add more water gradually, if needed, as gravy cooks down.
Combine ribs with about 1 inch salted water in large saucepan. Cover and simmer 1-1/2 hours, until tender; drain. Combine gravy mix, water, lemon juice, oil, ketchup, and brown sugar; brush over ribs. Grill over hot coals 15 to 20 minutes, turning frequently and brushing with sauce.
NOTE: Ribs may also be cooked on an open brazier (Increase cooking time in packets by 30 minutes) or in a water smoker. Prepare smoker according to manufacturer's directions. Brush sauce completely over ribs. (Do not place ribs in foil packets.)
Place ribs on each rack of smoker. Cover and smoke. Cook at low to moderate temperature 4 hours or until tender.
Soak venison ribs in salted water solution for several hours or overnight. Wash the ribs after soaking, and parboil 30 minutes in pressure cooker at 10 pounds pressure. Remove from pressure cooker and place in frying pan. Mix the last 7 ingredients together, pour over the ribs and bake in 375 degree oven about 1 hour, or until meat is tender and browned.
The night before cooking: Trim the meat well. Make holes for seasoning, and use salt, red pepper, and garlic salt. Make slits crosswise in meat, and rub with olive oil. Pour 1/2 cup sherry or wine vinegar over roast.
On day of cooking: Cover meat with bacon strips, and place on rack. Bake, uncovered, at 250 degrees for 40 minutes per pound (9 pound roast, about 6 hours). Using bacon grease and 1/2 cup sherry, baste often.
One hour before serving (not included in baking time), remove meat from pan. Skim off as much fat as possible from the basting sauce. Mix the flour and water together, and stir in with the sauce to form the gravy. Then add 2 tablespoons to the jelly to the gravy, and mix well. Replace meat in pan with the gravy. Pour 1/2 cup sherry over roast and dot with remaining jelly. Cook at 275 degrees about 1 hour, basting with gravy. Let sit a few minutes before carving. Serves 8.
