I was put here to party and I was born to ... eat venison steaks!

I recently got me some venison round steaks from my born-to-boogie ami (yes, H. Williams is the H. Williams) ...

I cooked up my venison steaks tonight ...

... and here's how I did it:

Joltin' Django's Venison Round Steaks


2-3 lbs venison round steaks (cut into 3" x 3" cubes)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons black pepper
1/2 tablespoon cayenne pepper
2 eggs, very slightly beaten
Vegetable oil


Place venison steaks in a shallow pan and just cover with milk. Cover pan with foil and "rest" steaks in the refrigerator for at least one hour (this will help tenderize 'em and take away any "gaminess" they may have).

Heat vegetable oil in an iron skillet over medium-high heat (oil should be about one inch deep).

Mix flour, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a bowl; beat eggs in a separate bowl.

When oil is hot (a small pinch of flour should start sizzling when dropped in the skillet), dredge venison steaks in flour, dip in beaten eggs, and then dredge in flour again.

Drop steaks in oil and fry 'em about 4 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels.

Dust with additional cayenne pepper, if you can take it, and partake.

I like reading your blog but you are just more than a bit full of it Django. Your friends with Hank Williams Jr? when will you tell us the friends with Mickey Rourke too?

Man, gotta make a venison steak sammich with some Duke's and a bit of hot sauce and post. Better yet, gimme one of them pieces of Bambi steak and I'll tell you the result!
One of these days I'm gonna take you up on the offer to go see Mr H, jr and do the whole all-access thing. I'd bring a bottle of single-barrel Dickle to that do!
PS: Hey nonymouse, don't disparage the d'jango. I attest to the veracity of his claims.

I can assure you of two things: 1) Django is indeed a personal friend of Hank Jr., and 2) you're a dumbass.

Y'all know, Nashville and vicinity is still largely a small town, and there are lots of folks who are only moderately famous (like Joltin' D.) who are in fact acquainted with more famous folk like little Hank. I too can vouch for the veracity of J.D. in this case. His venison steak recipe sounds pretty dern good, too. --Dana
