View Full Version : A Venison Tri Tip

I posted a photo in wp the other day of one of the whitetail deer I got during rifle season. Adams asked about the tri tip. I usually cut them up but decided to find this one and cook it separately.
Not sure if you'll see this Adams but here's what I came up with.

Some of the meat...

the deer field dressed at 160lb so the tri tip wasn't very large...

hydrated some of the morel mushrooms from spring...

found some wild sandhill plums in the freezer I had saved for wine and jelly...

made a sauce with the plums first...

started the morels next with a bit of olive oil, butter, scallions and minced garlic...

salt and peppered and gave the tri tip a quick grill...I prefer venison fairly rare.

That's it.
Some sliced venison tri tip with sandhill plum sauce and wild morels...

I really enjoyed the meal. It was simple, but reminded me of why I hunt.
The morels, wild sandhill plums and venison just seem to go together. :grin:


Thanks for looking!

Looks good! looks like everything complimented each other well! I never come up with meals this fancy! I just cook meat, and something to go with it and throw it on a plate! Doesn't stay on the plate long enough for me to make it look pretty :thumb:

Is the venison tri tip pretty tender about like a beef one? Any instructions on how to find and butcher it outta there? Hoping to fill my tags this season as well.

That looks like a fine meal as always! It certainly does make sitting in the blind so worth it!

Thank you for the nice comments everyone, you're a kind group of friends! :grouphug: :grin:

I usually make sauce out of sand hill plum wine but haven't had the chance to make the wine. The plums worked out alright this way.

I really love hunting...just being out there.
If I bring home deer meat it's a bonus. :thumb:

It is tender, but pretty small to mess with. I like the tenderloin and backstrap better. I cut the meat off the bone while it's hanging. Usually cut through it pretty fast, then carry it into the kitchen to finish.
On this deer, I took my time and looked for the tri tip before starting.
I've seen deer charts online that help locate the tri tip and I ran across a post by a friend (Eraine) who took step by step pics of butchering a hind end.
I'll send that link to you.


Hope the rest of you hunters have great luck this season!!
Thanks again friends! :grin:
