Deer Stir Fry

My Dad is a big hunter and fisherman and likes to keep Adam and I well stocked in meat. I had no idea what to do with some of the deer tenderloin we had received until my Dad suggested I try a stir fry...so I did! Here is how I made it, but you can always add or delete some of the add-ins.

Start by cutting the meat into strips and season with sea salt and black pepper.

Clean your knife and chop half of an onion, mince 2 cloves of garlic, and cut one red bell pepper into strips. I also added snow peas..don't forget to wash them first!

You can cook this easily in a pan, but you would need to do it in steps; cook meat first then remove to cook vegetables. I have a wok so I did it all together. Heat your wok and olive oil over medium heat and then add your vegetables.

Look at those colors! So pretty! Saute the vegetables for 3-4 minutes before adding the meat.

Meat is always tricky to cook to a correct temperature, but you don't want it to be overdone. I believe I cooked the meat for 5-7 minutes.

A deer stir fry needs a yummy, bold sauce to complement it, so I made my own sauce with spicy brown mustard, red pepper flakes, and soy sauce. I have no idea on measurements, I just added and tasted until it was what I wanted.

And the finished product! Serve over rice and enjoy!
