Man, I just invented a recipe the other nite that was dynamite so I thought I'd share.

Filling:
2 packs cream cheese
1 jar jalapeno rings
1 pound of Bacon
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 heaping tablespoons of mayo

Finely dice Bacon and pan fry until done. Soften cream cheese in bowl and add mayo and Bacon pieces and mix. Finely dice up the jalapenos and mix in. I usually add maybe two large tablespoons of the diced jalapenos. I taste the filling until I get the right amount of heat. Finally add in the cheddar and mix. The filling is ready.

Prepare:

Cut the backstrap into roughly 1/4 inch thick slices. Place each slice one at a time between two pieces of saran wrap and pound thin with a meat mallet or other heavy flat object. when done they'll be about three inches across and almost paper thin. When they're all pounded out put maybe a tsp of the filling on each one and wrap like a burrito. Make sure to fold the ends in so it seals them up good. Place them all on a baking sheet with the seam down and sprinkle with your favorite seasoning. Bake at 350 until they look done.

It may be a little involved but my buddies said they never tasted anything like it. They were incredible!

Just don't be afraid to pound the slices thin. I started out and found them tough to fill because I didn't get them thin enough and large enough. I would try one first and fill it to see how it goes. That'll give you an idea if you need to make them thinner. Another trick is that if you have any with holes set them to the side. Those are usually smaller and I doubled them up with others that had holes so it kept the cheese in. These don't take long at all to cook so keep a close eye on them. I can't remember the exact time but I think mine were done in 10 minutes or so. Don't worry if a little of the cheese runs out of some, that's bound to happen.

I tried this recipe over this past weekend and, man it was one of the best back strap recipes I've ever tasted.

DELICIOUS!

This would be a perfect recipe for someone who has never tried venison.

Thanks for sharing your invention, Bearklr!

Glad you liked it!! It's really a tough recipe to explain due to pounding out the backstrap but I tried my best. It's really a trial and error thing until you figure it out. Last time I made these I never even had a chance to set the tray down at the party. They emptied it in my hands and back upstairs I went.

I'm planning on making some this weekend. My wife is not a big fan of venison unless its jerky or sticks. Wont eat steaks or a roast, so maybe some cream cheese will help.

Just finished making them.

I found the next time that I make them I am going to need more bacon. I kept grabbing the little nuggets of goodness while I was prepping the cream cheese and mayo!

Gonna get the wife to try em here in a bit. Wish me luck!

LOL...gotta love when they won't eat something because it's all in their heads and absolutely nothing to do with taste. I'm ready for Saturday...making another batch!

These sound good. I'll definately try this but I'll be cooking them over the open fire next to the cream cheese stuffed jalopenos wrapped in bacon. thumbs

Well, then I guess great minds think alike. Never been on any other cooking forums. Saw a similar recipe but it didn't take the meat and actually pound it and wrap the meat around the stuffing. I've seen recipes where you use chunks but that's completely different especially when it comes to the way they taste. I've found that the larger surface area allows for more flavor. Just my opinion though. Glad everyone liked them!

Great recipe! One issue however...if you're going to pound/pulverize a piece of venison to the point that it's "paper thin", surely there are other cuts that will suffice in this recipe before I'd burn a backstrap on it.

I'm sure you could use another lean piece of meat but the backstraps just work really well. They are the perfect size due to the shape of the whole strap and the round thin slices that can be pounded easily. Plus, they have no connective tissue and are really tender so when you bite into one with the soft cheese filling you're not trying to tear the meat apart while the cheese squirts out. After they're cooked and you bite into one you can still definitely tell how tender the meat is. At least the ones I made anyway.

I still have one of my backstraps left. I try to save them for special occasions, like a neighbor's cookout, so I can turn people onto venison.

These poppers are the best!
