venison chops with mushroom onion gravy

I had some venison in the freezer I wanted to use up so I decided to put this Venison Chops with Mushroom Onion Gravy on the supper menu. This recipe is mildly seasoned and has a delicious combination of flavors. I had the venison processed at a meat processing shop so the chops were boneless and butterflied which made the cutting for this recipe really simple. If you are using back straps just cut them into ¼ inch slices.
I served this dish with egg noodles, the gravy is delicious, and so I think it would also be great over mashed potatoes.
If you have venison on hand give this Venison Chops with Mushroom Onion Gravy Recipe a try; it’s delicious.

Venison Chops with Mushroom Onion Gravy Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Main
Serves: Serves 4
  • 1 ½ pounds venison chops (cut into 1 ½ inch pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 ¾ cups beef broth
  • ¼ ounce dried Shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 pound white mushrooms (sliced ¼ inch thick)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion (sliced thin)
  • 4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  • ¼ teaspoon thyme
  1. Combine sugar and soy sauce into a medium size bowl. Toss the venison in the mixture coat and marinate 30 minute to one hour; tossing occasionally.
  2. While venison is marinating place ¼ cup beef broth into a small microwaveable bowl along with the dried mushrooms. Microwave for about 1 minute or until mixture is steaming, cover, and let the mushrooms set until softened. Place a coffee filter into a strainer and drain the liquid though the filter. Reserve the liquid, chop the mushrooms and set them aside separately.
  3. Drain any leftover marinate from the chops if necessary. Season the chops with ½ teaspoon pepper. In a large skillet over medium high heat using 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil cook the chops until well browned and almost done. Remove the chops to a platter and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet over medium high heat add the other tablespoon of oil, white mushrooms, minced shiitake mushrooms, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook string frequently until all liquid is evaporated and mushrooms start to brown. Add the onion and another ¼ teaspoon salt to the mushroom mixture and cook stirring frequently until onion is soft, and starts to brown.
  5. Add the flour, garlic, thyme, and continue cooking and stirring until mixture is coated with the flour. Add the remaining broth, and the liquid set aside from the dried mushrooms. Stir to release any dripping from the bottom of the pan. Arrange the chops into the onion and mushrooms along with any juices that settled on the bottom of the platter. Cook over medium low heat until juices have thickened and chops are cooked to desired done-ness. (When I browned the chops I cooked them to the desired done-ness I wanted so they just had to be heated through in the mushroom onion mixture)
  6. Serve over noodles or mashed potatoes
