- 8 oz crumbled feta cheese
- 12 oz sour cream
- 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
- 2 (12 oz) 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.
