Fried Venison Medallions with Feta Dipping Sauce


Feta Sauce:
8 ounces feta, crumbled
12 ounces sour cream
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 (12-ounce) venison tenderloins
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup dry mustard powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons grey salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
3/4 cup olive oil


For the sauce:
In a small bowl fold together the feta, sour cream, garlic, and dill until combined. Serve on the side with the medallions.

For the venison:
Slice the venison tenderloin into 1/3-inch slices.

In a shallow dish, mix together the flour, mustard powder, cayenne, salt and pepper. In a separate shallow dish, mix together the buttermilk and whole-grain mustard. Dredge the medallions in the buttermilk mixture for a minute. Then coat with the flour mixture.

In a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Fry the venison until golden brown on both sides. Place on a paper towel lined plate to drain. Serve with feta sauce.
