Directions Step-By-Step

Although the recipe calls for “pan-seared” venison medallions, the medallions can also be grilled or broiled as long as you don’t overcook them. When using hindquarter cuts, slice the meat with the grain into strips about 4 inches wide. Slice across the grain of each piece, about 1/2 inch wide, to make the medallions. Season meat evenly with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add meat and brown on each side, about 1-2 minutes each side, but not past rare. Add rosemary, garlic, wine, balsamic vinegar and plum preserves. Remove meat after 1 minute and keep warm. Reduce liquid to a few tablespoons. Whisk in chilled butter until melted. Immediately remove pan from heat and stir in berries. Arrange medallions on plates, spoon sauce over and top with blue cheese crumbles. Enjoy!
