VENISON PEPPER STEAK

Cut venison tenderloin in strips and cook in oil until almost done, should be a little pink in center. Drain off oil and add 2 tsp. water. Add 4 onions cut in strips, 4 peppers cut in strips (“to make it more colorful use red, yellow and green but using just one color is fine”), add 2 packages of Lipton’s Onion Soup mix. Mix with ingredients well. Cook and thicken with cornstarch. Continue cooking until it becomes the consistency of oatmeal. Serve over rice or flat noodles. “My wife and I prefer rice.”
