Good night to grill - venison backstrap

9 posts in this topic

It was a prefect night to fire up the grill last night so I pulled out a pack of venison backstrap and prepared them one of my favorite ways.

I started out by cutting them into medallions about 2 inches thick, maybe a little less.  Then they got wrapped in Nueske's apple wood smoked bacon.  Then they spent the afternoon marinading in a mix of bbq sauce (sweet baby rays) and apple cider.  I just eyeball the ratios, I leave the marinade so the bbq sauce is thinned down but still thick enough you can paint it on the medallions without it all running off.  I let it sit in the fridge for the bulk of the day while I was out doing yard work and then it gets grilled up.  I shoot for about medium at most on these although with the marinade and the bacon helping keep things tender and moist you've got a little wiggle room.  I did one or two more well done for one person and they were still very tender and moist even though there was no pink at all.  I didn't take an after photo as I was in to big of a rush to start eating but here are a couple prep shots.

Nice!  I have a backstrap portion about 10" long in a Lowry's Smokehouse marinade right now.  I will also wrap in bacon and throw on the grill tonight.

I'll try to get photos, but they always seem to get drool on them when grilling venison :)

I use this marinade for all my venison then to the grill for about 4 minutes per side 150 degrees is a little to high for me I shoot for 140 and it ends up at about 145 after resting.

Ingredients
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried, minced garlic
3 dashes hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco(R)), or to
taste
2 (4 ounce) venison steaks
Directions
Whisk Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, onion, red pepper flakes, dry mustard, salt, thyme,
black pepper, garlic, and hot pepper sauce together in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add
venison steaks, coat with the marinade, squeeze to remove excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the
refrigerator at least 1 hour.
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
Remove venison from the marinade and shake o㉰ excess. Discard remaining marinade.
Cook the steaks until they are firm, hot in the center, and just turning from pink to grey, about 5 minutes
per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 150 degrees F (65 degrees C)

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
