“While looking for an alternative to pan-frying our venison steak, we decided to give it a little Italian flair,” writes Phil Zipp from Tomahawk, Wisconsin. ”Our idea turned out to be a big hit with our family and friends.”

"Excellent use for venison backstraps. I cut backstrap chops about a half an inch, but didn't pound them to a quarter inch. Venison backstrap is to delicate. I did follow the recipe the rest of the way as instructed. This recipe will be a redo!"

"This is recipe is similar to one I've been making for years. If you are pressed for time, skip sauting the extra vegetables and just pour spahetti sauce over the prepared cutlets, top with the shredded Mozza and then bake. Check meat after 30 minutes--it's usually done by then."

"This recipe was GREAT! I made it with backstrap instead of steaks. The meat had great flavor and was very tender. My husband only eats his deer meat fried and he loved this! We will be making this often."

"My wife will not cook deer because she does not deer. So I have to cook the deer for myself. I have been looking for game recipes that I can make that she and the rest of the family will eat. This was a hugh success. I might even get the wife to cook it."
