Posted by Sandra
2 pounds 1" thick venison steaks (deer meat)
2 teaspoons roughly cracked black pepper
2 teaspoons course kosher salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Dry the venison steaks with paper towels. Rub lightly with some olive oil, and season generously with cracked pepper and course salt.
Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat; skim off solids (the 'milky' substance that forms) and discard.
Transfer clarified butter with the olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Saute venison steaks in large skillet for about 7-1/2 minutes each side to sear for medium rare, a total of 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and let stand for 4 to 5 minutes to allow juices to redistribute before slicing against the grain, diagonally, into long strips. Serve immediately. ~ Enjoy!
