Believe it or not, you're only ten minutes away from this summery sipper. If you have time, grill a few rounds of pineapple for a stunning garnish. (This is the best way to slice it, BTW.)

Slather it on toast, use it as cake filling, make it the center of a batch of thumbprint cookies or spoon some onto your morning yogurt or oatmeal. The mason jar is your oyster.

After experiencing my own hunt & harvest, I have a freezer full of venison and have been enjoying the challenge of coming up with new and varied recipes. Some of it is ground, some is in the form of small steaks, but along with the tenderloin, the most prized cut has to be the venison backstrap. Not everyone has the chance to have or buy venison from their local butcher, luckily most venison-based recipe can easily be substituted with beef, and certainly this one would be a perfect match for filet.

Venison can sometimes also be a little gamey, but my friend Ryan from Pitts & Spitts suggests soaking it in milk before cooking to extract some of the gamey flavors. I personally haven’t experienced any issues with the taste as yet, and have found like the backstrap is a more subtle and delicate flavor compared to beef. Because it’s a little more understated, it lends itself to be paired really well with sweeter ingredients like the blackberries, which also happen to look like shining jewels atop the perfectly medium rare back strap.

This is a great dish particularly for fall or winter, with rich berries and an amazing spice aroma. Serve it with something simple but hardly, like these perfect roast potatoes. It’s probably also a good idea to have some crusty bread on hand to mop up all that amazing sauce which will mingle with the meat juices. I think I just made myself hungry…

Seared venison backstrap with blackberry sauce


  • 3 lb venison backstrap, whole
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 6 oz fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • Juice & zest of one lemon
  • 2-4 cloves
  • 1-2 star anise (optional)
  • Thyme sprigs for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350f/180c.
  2. Combine salt, pepper, nutmeg in small bowl. Dry off surface of backstrap with paper towels and sprinkle spice mix liberally on top.
  3. Heat an oven proof skillet on high. Once smoking hot, place backstrap into skillet to sear, turning every minute or so to make sure all sides are cooked. Then place pan in the oven for 7-10 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and pan, place into foil and allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing into medallions.
  5. To make the sauce - combine berries, sugar, vinegar, zest, juice, cloves and anise in a pan, and bring to boil. Add an optional pinch of salt.
  6. After about 5 minutes of boiling, you should be able to 'smash' the berries on the side of the saucepan using a wooden spoon. Continue rapidly simmering sauce a further 5-10 minutes to thicken.
  7. Place medallions on a plate, spoon over generous portions of sauce and top with sprigs of thyme.

Keto Blackberry Sauce

Here we go again! It’s our never ending journey to make fruit sauces out of all fruits that are low-carb/keto friendly and today’s fruit happens to be sponsored by our kids with this Keto Blackberry Sauce!

A couple of weeks ago, they insisted on buying a Costco size tray of blackberries!

We knew there was no way they’d get through it all, but they threw the ‘please, its healthy right?’ card at us….sooo…how could we resist?

Fast forward 10 days later, the carton was still sitting in our fridge and we needed to make use of them somehow.

It’d been a while since we made any fruit sauces, so we figured it would be a good time to use them up and at least preserve them.

An hour later, out comes this dark pearl blue fruit sauce that just blew my expectations!

It’s not too sweet and has a nice balanced berry profile, a welcomed addition to our fruit sauce collection! Now, one low-carb/keto fruit down and many more to go!

This sauce carries the jam sweetness up front with subtle flavors of blackberry showing up near the end of the profile. It’s subtle but well balanced to leave you wanting more and more!

1g net carbs per tbsp, it’s definitely keto friendly as far as fruit sauces are concerned!

For this one, you will only need Swerve/Monkfruit as the special ingredient, which can be purchased on Amazon or a local specialty supermarket.

Prepping Time 2M

Cooking Time 11-14M

Total Time 13-16M

Servings 1/3 Cup



1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) In a small saucepan, add blackberries, Swerve/Monkfruit, and 1 tsp of water. Note – you may need to add an extra 1/2 tbsp of Swerve/Monkfruit depending on how ripe your blackberries are.

3) Cook on medium heat until water is boiling, then turn down to low, stirring often and crushing blackberries with a soft spatula until a nice syrupy sauce forms. Roughly 11-14 minutes. Set aside cool down. Tip– Freeze in ice cube trays and keep in ziplock for easy single portion use. It will also hold in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Hope you enjoy your low-carb/keto Blackberry Sauce!

About Blackberries

Blackberries are a summer fruit. They're in season from June through September, making them a great partner with rhubarb, strawberries, and blueberries for summer desserts.

When you buy blackberries, look for bright, shiny, and plump ones that are deep purple or almost black and consistent in their coloring. Blackberries should be used as soon as possible after you buy them but will keep about five days in the refrigerator.

These berries are both sweet and tart and have a multitude of uses—in sauces, like this recipe, and in syrups pies, cobblers, and crisps trifles muffins fruit smoothies parfaits on ice cream in fruit salads and with feta cheese and fresh spinach greens for a usual summer salad.

Blackberries are known for their powerhouse nutrition. Their very dark purple coloring tells you they have high levels of antioxidants. One cup of blackberries contains about 62 calories, 14 grams of carbohydrates, and 8 grams of fiber. They are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamins A, E, and K. Blackberries also are an excellent source of flavonoids.
