Pan-Fried Venison Steak Recipe

      • 1 pound venison or beef tenderloin, cut into 1/2-inch slices
      • 2 cups crushed saltines
      • 2 eggs
      • 3/4 cup milk
      • 1 teaspoon salt
      • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
      • 5 tablespoons canola oil


      1. Flatten venison to 1/4-in. thickness. Place saltines in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Coat venison with saltines, then dip in egg mixture and coat a second time with saltines.
      2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook venison in oil in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°)
