Chickenfried Venison Backstrap and Bear Fat Biscuits

Had the chance awhile back to fry up some of the backstrap from this fall's deer season .


I go the simple route... salt, pepper and flour on the steaks.


then fry til brown in hot oil or lard in a cast iron skillet...





 I drain all but 3 TBs of the drippings, add 3 TBs of flour and make a skillet gravy..





I cook the flour for a minute or two before adding milk, cracked black pepper and coarse salt. I start with 2 cups of milk and add more if needed. (thanks Alex :))



Whipped up some biscuits using
2 cups of flour
1/4 cup of bear lard
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
about 1 tsp sugar ( you can add more or less)
and 3/4 cup of milk
Combine the dry ingredients well, then work the lard in completely. Add the milk last..









The chickenfried backstrap, smooshed potatoes, skillet gravy and bear fat biscuits...
and a little bit if salad to make it look healthy. :)




It's such a simple meal but it's one of my favorite comfort meals.  It's a nice feeling to have venison on hand for the winter too...  :)

What a great looking meal!
I am getting closer to learning how to make my own biscuits.
We're a ways to getting our first deer though.
Thank you for sharing this!

P.S.

Do you need to have 2 kinds of verification?

Aloha Cowgirl,

Glad to be back at your blog so much goodness here :) Love this simple comfort food and the gravy looks great. Will definitely do this if we get lucky during deer season.

Mahalo Nui Loa for all your hospitality and sharing!

Thanks Linda! I like yeast biscuits too but usually don't want to take the time to make them..these are quicker. lol
I'm not sure what is going on with the verification. I will check into it. Hope you are having a great weekend! :)
