Joe'S Recipes



1 lb. Cut Venison steaks
1 TBS Salt
1 TBS Pepper
1TBS Dry Italian Seasoning
1 tsp. Wildside Seasoning
2 Cloves Garlic
¼ Cup Fresh Chopped Parsley
1 Cup cherry tomatoes
1 Cup pearl onions
4 ½ cups Half & Half or Heavy Cream
1 Stick Butter
1 Box of Instant Polenta
4 Cups of dry red wine
1/3 Cup Orange Marmalade jelly
¼ Cup olive oil


In a hot fry pan, heat olive oil and sauté cherry tomatoes and pearl onions adding salt and Italian Seasoning to taste. When the tomatoes and onions begin to caramelize remove from heat and set aside. Get a sauce pan and heat 2 TBS olive oil and sear venison steaks. Add salt, pepper and Wildside Seasoning. Add four cups of wine and flame up to burn off some of the alcohol. When settled add the Marmalade Jelly and stir until dissolved. Slice the garlic and add to mixture. Chop the Parsley and add as well. The venison should be covered by the wine. If not, add a little more. Cover and lower heat to simmer for two hours.

When the Venison is about 10 minutes from completion put the Heavy Cream and butter into a sauce pan and melt the butter heating the cream. Do not boil. Once the Heavy Cream and Butter are hot add the Polenta stirring constantly. When the Polenta thickens and reaches the desired consistency, remove from heat. Place a dollop of Polenta on a Plate. Add two or three pieces of Venison to the Polenta and put two or three tablespoons of the marmalade wine sauce over the venison and Polenta. Finish by putting two tablespoons of the Tomatoes and Onions over the Venison.
