Venison Steak Marinade

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by JustJan

This is the only steak my family will eat. They do not even like NY strip any more. We have our meat processor cut our venison steaks to about 1 inch thick, then I marinate and grill to medium rare. Better than beef and better for you too! Our traditional family Christmas Eve dinner menu is always venison steak and shrimp scampi!

Wow! My husband got a deer this year and our first taste of it was the inside loin. I used this marinade on it and what a wonderful flavor. I browned it in my fry pan then removed it and added mushrooms and sauteed them until slightly browned then put the loins back in and baked for about 25 minutes. We couldn't stop eating what a great flavor. I will be using this marinade for more than venison. Thanks so much!
