I am a meat eater. I always have been. So, when Chad got his deer this year I was very excited! It meant food for our family.

We brought it to Tiffany and Ryan Hinkley's in New Sharon. Tiffany is Chad's cousin. It's nice to have a meat cutter in the family because they got ever bit of meat they could from that deer! When I went to pick it up Ryan picked up the package of tenderloin and said "This, THIS right here is the BEST part! Whatever you do, don't ruin it!"

Is deer tenderloin REALLY that good? I was going to find out!

I actually called Tiffany yesterday to ask HOW to prepare it. I didn't want to take any chances. Chad had been looking forward to this meal forever! She told me to cook it in pan over LOW heat with butter, salt, pepper and a little garlic salt. It cooks slower but better!

It came out SO GOOD! The meat melted in our mouths! Anderson couldn't get enough! When your man sits back and smiles at you after dinner, you KNOW you did a good job!

If you have other recipes you'd like to share with me, let me know! I like to cook!
