Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes
- 20 oz. of venison backstraps
- 1 package of ranch seasoning dry mix (or favorite dressing)
- 2 cups of French's Original Fried Onions
- 2 tbs. all-purpose flour
- 1 egg, beaten
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut tenderloins into desired sized pieces for each person. Lightly coat each with ranch seasoning dry mix. Don't overdo it. It's very salty. You may not even use the entire package. If using a wet marinade, let it sit for at least 30 minutes.
2. In a ziplock bag, combine 2 cups of French's Fried Onion and 2 tbs. of flour. Crush with hands or rolling pin.
3. Dip meat into egg, then coat with onion crumbs. Press crumbs down so they stick.
Place venison on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees F for 10-15 minutes. 10 minutes for medium-rare.
Enjoy with your favorite sides. Yum!! Thanks, Ashley, for a wonderful recipe!

I was born and raised in South Florida. Grew up in the outdoors with my dad; I was the son he never had. I used to do everything with him, from fishing, to working on trucks and heavy machinery. When I was about 16, we started duck hunting together. Then I met my husband who I married this past November. He introduced me to archery and really started my passion for the outdoors. We live to hunt, and hunt to live. We do everything in the outdoors together. I'm proud to say that I'm a hunter's wife, as I'm sure he's proud to say that he's a huntress's husband! Haha.
This photo of us was from 2010 when I harvested my first deer, a big South Florida public land 8 point. He was so proud of me, and of course, I was extremely proud of myself. It took a lot of hard work and years of scouting in the same WMA, but well worth it! I was also pregnant with our first daughter here, and the hunt happened right before we found out. Our daughter has definitely proven that she's an outdoor girl for sure. She'll be two in July and loves hunting and fishing with us every chance she gets!
