  • 1 steak Caribou Tenderloin

Caribou Tenderloins

  1. Season both sides of the caribou tenderloin with salt and pepper

  2. Melt 1 tbsp of butter into the skillet before searing both sides of the meat until medium rare (Be very careful about overcooking most wild game meat because it can get very hard and tough fast)

  3. After both sides have been seared to perfection, let rest until the cherry sauce is ready
