This was such a great recipe! Enjoyed it very much..just be careful to not over cook the venison. Made that mistake with the first batch and they were a little dry

Delicious! I've made this twice already, and will definately make it again. The only change I made was using reduced sodium beef broth. Quick, easy, and sooooo good! I made a quick mushroom gravy with the extra beef broth, and it complemented the meat perfectly. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli.
