The other week a friend of mine asked me, in a rather off-hand way, if I wanted a box of venison. I asked him if it was some sort of a trick question. It wasn't. Apparently, there are those who after having successfully bagged a deer and gone to the trouble of taking it to the butcher to be broken down, never pick it up. Incomprehensible.
However, one man's loss is another man's dinner for a good long time. The box arrived with a wide selection of cuts; sadly there was no offal, but one shouldn't look a gift deer in the mouth. The chops looked remarkably delicious and were scheduled for early use.
First, the chops should be marinated overnight. Make the marinade by mixing together:
Remove the chops from the marinade and strain the liquid into a saucepan. Discard the solids. Put the saucepan under medium-high or high heat and begin reducing it to make a sauce.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over a high flame, and then cook the chops, two or three minutes per side should be adequate. Serve with the sauce on the side. Add a nice red wine and green salad and the evening is complete.
