Country chefs pound venison with edge of plate as for Swiss steak


  • lbs. venison
  • Seasoned flour (with salt, pepper, paprika)
  • Fat for frying
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 (4 oz.) can mushrooms
  • c. tomato purée
  • c. hot water


  • Wipe meat with vinegar-soaked cloth—vinegar picks up hairs and clotted blood more easily.
  • Cut meat into serving pieces and roll lightly in seasoned flour. Flatten slightly with edge of plate or meat pounder.
  • Fry until golden brown on both sides in hot fat. Add onions after first turning.
  • Place in greased casserole; add remaining ingredients. Bake in moderate oven (350°) about 2 hours, until tender.
