    Antelope sirloin marinated in pomegranate molasses, sriracha sauce, Greek extra virgin olive oil, and chopped garlic. Pan-fried for 30 seconds on each side.

    Long kou bean thread (Sotanghon noodle) sautéed in Greek extra virgin olive oil and butter, chopped garlic, crushed red pepper, sliced baby bella shroom, and saffron.

    Paired with an 18 YO Scotch.

    I like my beefsteak medium rare; your antelope still looks kind o' raw. I have no idea if it's supposed to be eaten that way or not.

    Does the meat from game animals have to be"correctly prepared" or be cooked in some particular way so as to kill-off any microbial or bacteriological concerns? I last ate venison in maybe 1965 or '66. I still remember how ungodly awful it tasted. Never again!

    My parents were in the meat market business and I grew up eating a lot of things raw (beef, deer and elk meat, fish/seafood), yes there is always a risk (like in an sashimi/sushi restaurants) but I never had any problem. Pork, chicken, bear I make sure they are cooked well. It boils down to personal (cook's prerogative) preference and preparation. You like yours medium rare, I like mine rare or raw depending on how I feel like at the time. here's a raw venison tenderloin ...

    Sriracha dipping sauce, pickled ginger, and Scotch.

    One of mine too; love to hunt them as well. Where I deer and antelope hunt for meat, they feed on wheat and alfalfa fields.

    Does that food make the meat taste better, as opposed to what they'd find in an average forest of pine trees an' such?

    I would say the Scotch takes care of that.

    Looks good to me ! It has been my experience that game meat taken proper care of in the field and cooked properly can be very good and the other side of that if it’s not properly taken of in the field and cooked improperly it can be awful

    Yes! Have you ever had antelope that primarily feed on sagebrush?

    No; the venison from 1966 forever took my decision to never eat wild meat again.

    If that is the case, why did you bother reading or responding to my post, it clearly says wild game on the title.

    Because no knowledge is ever wasted, and it cost neither one of us to impart or to gain that knowledge.
