    VENISON TENDERLOIN MARSALA WITH SHITAKE MUSHROOMS AND LEEKS
    Cut venison tenderloin into 1 ¾” pieces (about 6 works with the amount of sauce)
    Pound them thin from the end (cut side) and trim any sinew
    Mix ½ cup flour, 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese and 1 tsp salt
    Dredge meat in flour mixture
    Heat 3 Tbls of olive oil in large skillet
    Cook meat on medium high for 1-2 minutes each side (I used 1 minute or so)
    Remove meat from pan and place it in an oven proof plate (I used another frying pan) in the oven preheated to 250.
    Put 2 tbls of unsalted butter in the pan used for cooking the meat
    Add 4 ounces of sliced shitake mushrooms, 2 cloves of minced garlic and the bottom 5” of a leek halved and sliced very thin
    Saute on medium until leek is tender (3 to 5 minutes)
    Remove mushrooms/leeks from the pan and place in oven with meat
    Deglaze pan with 1 cup Marsala wine and the juice of 1 lemon; bring to a boil, then simmer until liquid is reduced by half
    Add 1 cup of chicken stock and return to boil. Simmer over medium high heat until reduced to about 4 tablespoons
    Whisk in 2 tablespoons of cold butter
    Return the meat and mushrooms to the pan and coat with the sauce while warming
    Serve meat topped with mushroom/leek mixture (it goes really well with Cakebread Pinot Noir)

    Hmm, that receipe sounds really good. It makes me drool already just by thinking about how the venison is going to taste like. I love venison, but my wife hates the gamey taste. I'm going to try the receipe and hope she will like it.
