Oh Deer! Steak

Hi!  Long time no see!  I am interrupting my customary blogging silence with a yummy dear steak recipe 🙂

My mighty hunter son shot a deer with a muzzle loader rifle from 131 yards away!  I’m very proud, and I’m loving the meat too!  In this recipe, we are cooking deer steak.

First, I melt butter in my pan.

Then I sear both sides of the steaks.

Next, I rub the steak in my homemade rub.

Butter is added to the top of the steaks before roasting at 425° for 15 minutes

We ate the steak with some fresh fruit.  Side note:  We are studying the states in home school, so we eat on a state map covered in plastic. It’s just fun!

The finished product!  Everyone in the family loves it.  We originally coated the steaks in cracked pepper, but the kids thought it was a bit too spicy.  I appreciate being able to feed my family healthy game meat.
