And excellent marinade. I used olive oil instead of the canola. Also, try adding 1/2 Tablespoon of minced ginger and 1/2 tablespoon of chopped oregeno.

My husband this year got both Moose and Venison. I've never liked either meat when I've tried it. Seeing as we have lots of it in our freezer, I figured I'd had better find a receipe and the proper way of cooking it. With one search of google, I came across your site and this receipe. I tried this receipe with Moose steak and Venison Chops. It was so good, I actually ate all the meat off my plate and wanted more. Now I'm looking forward to trying other receipes from your site. Thanks

This was great with ground venison for burgers too!!! I prepared the marinade thinking I had a pack of venison steaks and it was actually ground but I went ahead and used the marinade. Wonderful flavor! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

I did a bacon wrap on our deer tenderloin from this years buck. I let it sit in the fridge for 8 hrs then put it on the Traeger, OMG it was so awesome. My guys at the fire station are bugging me now to cook for them LOL.

Best marinade I have found so far other than what we typically do with venison (olive oil, garlic, salt & pepper marinade for 2 days then grill it). I made this marinade the other night for my father, mother, husband and family friend. My father (who is the hunter and is extremely nervous to try new ways to cook his backstraps) absolutely raved over it! He said it was the most interesting way he has had the backstraps yet! I soaked the steaks in fat free milk overnight when they were defrosting in the fridge (my father had a cow when he saw this! "You don't milk the steaks nor do you fruit the beer!!!") as suggested by Spuffed, and then in the morning I scraped the ice off of them, towel-dried them, and then put them in a ziplock bag from 8am-7pm flipping them over every couple hours. Then we grilled them! So easy, so tasty! Served them with mushroom-red-wine-reduction sauce, cheddar-garlic mashed potatoes, sauteed fresh veggies from the garden and lima beans that we had laying around. Wonderful marinade and will be adding this to my kitchen staples!

This really surprised me because it is so simple...my steaks came out fantastic and I only marinaded for about 3 hours. Just had a really great flavor. I chose it because I had everything on hand; I didn't change a thing. Maybe it helped a little that my steaks weren't super thick (approx 1") and I pierced them a few times with a fork. Perfect for the grill.

Simply Awesome. Just tried this on venison steaks tonight. Used olive oil instead of canola & peppercorn. Marinated about 5 hrs & cooked on the grill. Turned out perfect. Very flavorful.

I made exactly per the recipe except I didn't have lemon juice, so I used lime. I also sprinkled a little salt on each side of the steak. Delicious! I agree that this marinade would be great on other meats as well.

This was just ok. It didn't have much flavor and it didn't make the meat very tender maybe I just had a very tough piece of meat. I marinated it for 5 hours. It smells really good though. Glad I tried it but don't think I would use it again.
