  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • 4 slices provolone cheese

  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add leek and cook for 3 – 5 minutes or until it begins to soften, stirring frequently. Do not burn. Add bell peppers with a dash of season salt and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

  5. Remove as much silver skin from venison as possible. Pat dry with paper towels and shave thinly against the grain.

    Removing the silver skin is a slightly easier task if you partially freeze the venison beforehand. (Jenny Nguyen-Wheatley photo)

  7. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of butter over medium-high heat. When skillet is nice and hot, quickly sauté shaved venison with Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and season salt, to taste. Do not cook venison past medium.
