Here in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, venison is a staple food. My son-in-law supplies me with venison for these savory sandwiches. Prepared this way, the meat becomes very tender. — Patricia El-Zoghbi, Wells, New York


  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 2 cans (4 ounces each) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 venison tenderloin steaks (12 ounces), about 3/4 inch thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 4 hard rolls, split


  1. In a large skillet, saute onions and mushrooms in butter and Worcestershire sauce until onions are tender. Flatten steaks to 1/2 in. thick; add to the skillet.
  2. Cook over medium heat about 3 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness. Sprinkle with garlic powder, pepper and salt if desired. Place two steaks on each roll; top with onions and mushrooms.
