Greatest backstrap I ever cooked!!
« on: August 06, 2014, 04:09:00 PM »
I've been saving a whole backstrap for my 40th birthday dinner this past weekend. I wanted to stuff one and I combined several recipes I found on line. Here's how I did it.


I took the whole strap and fileted it open so it lays flat like this


   


Then I pounded it out uniform with a meat mallet like this

   


Then I spread it with crumbled blue cheese mushrooms and salt n pepper

   

Then rolled it back up


   


Then wove some bacon

   

And wrapped the stuffed strap in bacon weave

   

Then off to the grill. Here it is finnished.The greatest venison I've ever cooked even tho I did cook it a little past my target

Very nice!! I love Blue Cheese stuffed backstrap.

Haven't taken the time to wrap it in bacon but I could see this happening in the near future. LOL

Happy 40th Birthday!!

Dude, awesome I did the bacon weave before but the blue cheese would go well with the combo. I will have to give this a try.    :thumbsup:

I tried this last week and it came out great. I did another version with onions, jalapenos, mushrooms with a good dab of butter. It was awesome.

I tried this yesterday, I did not have a loin so I used 2 lb's of ground venison. It turned out awesome!!!!

It was a bacon weave, pepper jack cheese stuffed meat loaf. It was "off the chain" as my daughter said!

Man that looks really good. What if you don't have a grill, could you cook it in the oven? Thanks

Tony, I cooked my Meatloaf in the oven! I used my wife's meatloaf recipe then stuffed and wrapped it. I put it on a broiler rack with a pan under it to catch the grease.

Make sure the bacon is straight when you buy it.

I did it at 300 for around 1 1/2 hours. The time varies depending on how big your meat loaf is. I used 2 lbs of venison and I think I had a 16 oz pack of bacon to do the weave.

Line the bottom of the pan that is catching the grease with tin foil to make the clean up easier!
