Venison Loin Steak and Fries

4 servings
35 Minutes

I made this on one of those days where I didn't know what I was going to make for dinner, didn't have the right ingredients for what I first decided on, and then the pivot turned out way better than what I was wanting in the first place.

I took a dive into our deep freezer, and decided to play with some loin chops - something I don't usually cook!

If you have some venison loin chops, you'll want to make this. I'm so used to always eating backstraps, tenderloins, and random deer steaks, that I totally underestimated the loin chops, and I am newly hooked! I'll for sure be requesting these cuts from the hubs’ harvest next year! ⠀

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix 1 c olive oil, garlic, 1 tbsp. oregano, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. pepper, and 1 tbsp. lemon juice in a bowl, and use it as a marinade for your chops.
Once covered with the mixture, let your chops marinate for about 20-30 mins.
While the chops are marinating, mix the remaining olive oil, salt and pepper, and oregano.
Cover a sheet pan with parchment paper, spread out your fries on the pan, and drizzle the olive oil mixture over the fries.
Toss to coat. Cook for 20 mins flipping halfway, and then remove from the oven (don't turn off the oven!).
After the chops are finished marinating, heat n oven-safe pan on high heat (preferably a cast iron - get it hot!).
Sear the chops for about 1 minute on each side, and then place the pan in the oven for about 5-7 mins.
Once done, remove from the oven, and serve with the fries!⁠⠀
