Venison French Dip Sandwich recipe

Recipe by: Lee and Tiffany Lakosky of Crush with Lee and Tiffany

“A venison twist on a classic, this will be a repeat request!” – Lee and Tiffany

Servings: 2

Sandwich ingredients:
  • 2 pounds shaved venison
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 sub rolls (we used multigrain)
  • Optional: sautéed onions, peppers and Swiss cheese
Au Jus ingredients:
  • 3 cups of water
  • 4 cubes of beef bouillon
  • 1 teaspoon of soy sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper

For shaved venison, ask your butcher to slice the venison for you or use a slicer to thinly cut half-frozen venison steaks.

Add butter to hot sauté pan and melt. Add garlic and stir until soft. Add shaved venison and soy sauce and then sauté until browned. Season with salt and pepper. Pile high on top of sub roll (toast the roll if you prefer). Add sautéed onions, peppers and Swiss cheese if you’d like.

To make the au jus, bring water to a boil over high heat. Reduce to low and whisk in beef bouillon cubes. Continue to whisk in soy sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Serve hot in a bowl along side venison French dip sandwiches.
