Blazing Venison (or Beef) Steaks

Posted by request. Although habanero peppers are extremely hot, they do not overwelm you in this recipe, but rather lend a nice heat once your meat is marinated. Do be careful however when handling and chopping these peppers. Cooking time is marinating time.

This was really good! I took it upon myself to remove the seeds from the peppers, and I'm glad I did. I think it would be too hot if I had left them in. I didn't end up putting the marinade on mushrooms, so I can't comment there, but the meat was fantastic! Very tender and full of flavour. I only marinaded it for about 1.5 hours, and it was enough. Great recipe - thanks!!
