Recipe: Whitetail sandwich with aioli and bell pepper

Looking for a wild lunch? Here it is! A whitetail sandwich with fresh bell pepper. All kind of deer meat works for this sandwich, so go ahead and choose your favorite. In this recipe I’ve used a whitetail tenderloin, but all cooked pink venison meet can be used – but a full-length fillet of a whitetail would be way too much for only two people.

You need (for 2 persons): 

- 1 baguette or 4 slices of bread
- Whitetail tenderloin (fillet or cut from back leg)
- 4 tbsp. aioli
- 2 handful fresh spinach or rocket salad
- 1 red bell pepper
- Salt and freshly ground pepper

Here's how you do it:

1. Season the whitetail tenderloin with salt and pepper. On a frying pan add butter and a little olive oil. Fry on high heat for 30 sec. on each side. Turn down to middle heat and cook for about 4-5 min. on each side. Set aside and let it rest for about 10-12 min.

2. Slice bread or half the baguette into two sandwiches. Slice bell pepper and wash fresh spinach.

3. Build your sandwich. Enjoy!

Happy hunting & happy cooking!
