Permitted use provided by:



Place a cast iron pan on medium-high heat. Rub venison cubs with vegetable oil and place in the hot skillet. Sprinkle with the garlic and onion powder. Just sear the outside of the meat, which takes approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side.

Dissolve the beef base in the 3/4 cup hot water. Add this to the steak in the skillet along with the dry onion soup. Mix well and add the onions and mushrooms.

Cover and cook for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the venison is cooked to your preference.

When the meat is cooked to your liking, mix the hot water and flour together. Add to the skillet and bring to a boil; simmering until thickened. Serve over mashed potatoes or rice. Shown with quartered potatoes and carrots.

You may also add 1/2 cup sour cream to this - making it taste more like stroganoff; serving over buttered noodles.

The Lupo's trigger is designed to help hunters place their shots accurately. Let's look at the details on episode nine of Beyond the Rifle.

Few, if any, hunters enjoy recoil. Benelli has developed ways to tame the punch delivered by magnum waterfowl loads in its shotguns. The company has adapted these technologies to the Lupo so that deer hunters no longer have to withstand punishment every time they fire a shot. Let's see how it works in episode eight of Beyond the Rifle.
