I butterfly cut my backstraps, take me trusty meat hammer and whoop on it a bit. Soak it in zesty Italian salad dressing, flour and fry. Another trick i like is insert a long bladed knife into the backstrap and cut a hole the entire length of it. Then i stuff a kielbasa or similar sausage into it, wrap in bacon and grill for about 2 hours on lowish heat. It's really hard to mess up backstrap period.:wink:

Well Normally if it is the tenderloin only hot greese floured like chicken with a pinch of this seasoning or that will do. But if ya got a old buck and really do not want to beat it with a medal hammer try putting it in the oven with brown gravy hot peppers, bannana peppers seasonings and such. That is pretty good too. ya cook it slow like a roast and the meat will fall apart

I have an industrial meat tenderizer and I run any piece of meat that is hand size, including the neck meat through it a couple of times and it is ready to eat. Of course I have to run the tougher pieces more than twice. I do like the Italian dressing soak, makes a specie meal. Salt, pepper, roll in flour and slow cook, when the flower on top is blood soaked turn it one time and brown the other side. Ready to eat, and great. You can always put them back in the cast iron skillet, pour a can of condensed mushroom soup on them and simmer till tender. Serve over mashed potatoes, with peas, salad, fresh bread or biscuits and a frosty libation. that is a meal for any man that likes wild game. Of course, a side plate of hickory jack mushrooms (oyster) which can be found any time of the year when there is a lot of moisture. "IT DON'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT" !

I like to take the strap cut it in about 5 to 6 inch chunks, not butterflying it, soak it in alittle Lawrys Seasoned Salt, Dash of Black Pepper, and Worcestershire Sauce overnight in a zip lock bag, Take the chunks out, and place on a HOT grill with lid closed!! Allowing each side to only go around 3 minutes, then flip once!! Have ya a plate ready and foil to quickly cover with. Allow to sit another 10 minutes wrapped with the foil, this will finish the cooking process, and the straps stay moist! Kinda different, but this is how I cook them babies!:wink: rollo

I cant believe how many ways you guys can come up with to cover up the flavor.lol :roll_eyes::smile2: Flour it to hold the lard, fry it crisp on the out side and bloody on the inside, salt to taste. If some turns out a little tough to chew, that's just all the more time you have to enjoy the flavor...:wink:
