Help with Venison-based appetizer

Zedeff | Dec 21, 2009 02:09 PM

A well meaning friend with no culinary knowlege has asked me if I would mind cooking a venison roast for him - he's a hunter. Yesterday he game me a frozen hunk o'beast to roast, but it's a little small at only 640 grams trimmed (~1.4 lbs). We are expecting to feed 6 people. To compensate for the small cut he also gave me two venison filets/steaks.

The roast is no problem, but what the heck to I do with two small steaks to divide among 6 people?

My only real thought was to make some simple popovers, quickly sear the steaks on both sides to medium-rare, and add a pan sauce, the portion and serve.

Any other steak-based appetizers floating around for a very game meat?
