Venison Tenderloin In Peppercorn Sauce Recipe
  |   September 16, 2016   |  
Naturally tender venison tenderloin is loaded with flavor but light on the fat, which makes it a great candidate for a rich partner like this zesty Peppercorn sauce. The venison is simply seared to get that gorgeous brown crust, and then drizzled with the piquant sauce and topped with some crispy bacon for some added fat. Serve with roasted potatoes, vegetables or a salad and dinner is done!
