I know I’m going to flak for this, but I am not a big fan of venison tenderloins. Yes, they are tender and everybody raves about them. I’ve heard it all before: a little salt and pepper, seared in butter, and it’s the best thing you’ll ever eat. Maybe that’s true for some people, but I usually give the tenderloins away because everybody values them more than I do. Most of the deer I shoot have been shot on some farmer’s property, and I usually give the loins to that farmer as a thank you for letting me hunt.
