Bacon-Wrapped Venison Recipe

"My husband, Ron, and I hunt and created this dish that's special enough for company," relates Phyllis Abrams from Alton, New York.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1-1/2 to 2 pounds venison tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 4 Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon strips
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1-1/4 cups beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, optional


  • 1. Rub tenderloin with 1-2 teaspoons of oil and the garlic. Combine the flour, salt and pepper; sprinkle over tenderloin and shake off excess. In a skillet, brown tenderloin on all sides in remaining oil. Remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, saute mushrooms until tender; remove and set aside.
  • 2. Wrap bacon around tenderloin, securing the ends with toothpicks. Return to skillet. Cook over medium heat until bacon is crisp and a thermometer inserted into tenderloin reads 160°, turning frequently. Remove and keep warm.
  • 3. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and broth until smooth; add to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add parsley and reserved mushrooms; cook and stir until heated through. Discard toothpicks from tenderloin; serve with mushroom sauce. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"Delicious! I didn't have any tenderloin so I used deer steak. It was very easy to put together & my 3yr old even loved it! Will definitely make this again!"
