Thumbs up Vennison Cabobs

Made venison cabobs from doe back-strap (tenderloin) the other night, and it turned out perfectly! The best cabobs I've ever had! I cut the back-strap into 2" chunks, cut some small red potatoes in half and steamed them for about 15 minutes, cooked up some bacon until it was browned, but still soft. Also quartered a medium onion and pre-cooked it in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Wrapped the potatoes and some mushrooms in the pre-cooked bacon, then assembled the cabobs with the venison chunks, onions, green pepper chunks, cherry tomatoes, bacon-wrapped potatoes and mushrooms. Cooked them on the grill (set at medium-low) for about 15-20 minutes, basting several times with garlic-butter & Italian seasoning. The venison was cooked medium-rare and was very tender & juicy, while the bacon was well cooked, and the potatoes and onions were tender. The secret is to pre-cook those items that take a long time to cook on the grill (potatoes, onion, and bacon), and baste often to keep the venison juicy.

Served over herbed brown rice accompanied by a glass of Pinot Noir. M-m-m-m-m good!

That sounds great! I will have to make some on our next camping trip. Next time some pics! We make it a lot by slicing the round steaks about 1/4-1/2 in strips and lightly breading them in Skeeters Cajun and Drakes (50/50). That sear them on an iron skillet with olive oil and a little hot shot seasoning. Just a couple quick minutes on each side until you see blood running. Too long and the round steaks get tough. Take them off, then sauté veggies on same skillet with more olive oil,
hot shot and teriyaki sauce. Mix it all together and it's like heaven in a bowl.

I found a recipe for some kind of venison casserole in a dutch oven I want to try too. It involves layering venison, potatoes, creamed corn, and some other stuff I can't recall. Sounds great though.

Hows full timing? Where in our wonderful state are you residing?
