Venison Marinade

13 posts in this topic

I got some venison steaks from my brother-in-law and was looking for some good marinades for them, and maybe some tips to keep them tender.

1/3 Italian Dressing, 1/3 Soy Sauce, 1/3 Worchestire Sauce. Marinade overnight. Grill to Medium rare. Eat warm. You will be able to cut the meat with a fork. make sure you cut all the talo off the meat.

Personally i find some italian dressings a bit strong for venison, so experiment and find one that works

My standard is enough soy sauce to cover the meat, 1/4 cup worcestshire, a couple cloves of garlic, and a little brown sugar and some lemon juice.

You can also add some bourbon for a little extra kick smile

The best marinade I have every used was the packets of McCormick GrillMates. Try the cajun and you wont be disappointed. These are 30 minute marinades, but I usually marinade for at least 2 hours. I have left them overnight and it is as tender as prime rib, no knife needed at all.

For backstrap section...McCormick Grillmate packet in montreal steak..marinade for however long you choose...wrap strap in bacon and grill to medium rare...let settle and imo fantastic!! I would also trust this method with individual steaks.

Here is a marinade I have used for years now. It will work for any venison cut, or any meat for that matter. I use this and my wife, who would not eat venison, has me grilling all the time. This is great for those who don't like the game taste!

1/4 cup worcestershire

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 Tbs ketchup

1 Tbs lemon juice

1 Tbs red wine vinegar

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Mix together and add meat. Let sit in refrigerator covered for 12-24 hours.

Enjoy!

Lots of responses on the marinade. I'm sure they're all good. As far as keeping those steaks tender? DO NOT OVERCOOK. Medium to medium rare is the most you ever want to cook venison. Anything beyond that is why so many people don't care for it.

That's basically true with most any meat. The more done you cook it, the dryer it becomes perhaps unless you slow cook it in some kind of sauce like an au-jus.

I cook mine to medium, but for my marinade I use equal parts of 1/2 Wishbone Italian dress and 1/2 Bold A-1 steak sauce.

    • LOL,They just pulled the bill. Obama's not even in office and he's still kicking the GOP's arse.  That takes talent.
    • GOP just postponed vote. They got nothin'.

    • See what I mean, he is winning an imaginary game with himself and we are all the losers.  It's actually very hilarious, maybe I will play a few rounds. D2E can win again and again and we can all laugh when be boasts about his wicked awesome super trolling.



       

    • All very true same here, I just don't like what I see out east but I guess the same could be said for every other country in the world. Still though, we are responsible and if we want change bad enough we need to take some action.
    • Yeah I know it always adds up.  I have done some construction work and a bit of home wiring and plumbing so I can usually come pretty close to price.  The parts that always kill me are when I need to go back to the store for a 30 cent bolt or something really small that just kills ya to make the trip ha!
    • 7 year of beeotching and the GOP finally has the chance to prove they can both lead the country and come up with a better plan than Obamacare and they failed at every level.   Great job.
    • We know. Halfwit us waaaaay too advanced for you to process. Just do the best you can and we will try to slow things down a bit for you.
    • I am looking at purchasing a newer house and my boat is in storage and I cannot get it out right now. How short of a garage can I go and still get the boat in the garage with an angle? I would love to buy a house with a bigger garage but that is not in the budget right now, and the boat always stays indoors.
    • Yo-Zuri Hybrid.   It's technically a co-polymer line, but it's a terrific, tough, low-stretch substitute for monofilament. It's also very affordable.   The thing you want to consider with Hybrid is that its actually breaking strength is about 1.5x the listed strength. For example, the 12# breaks at about 20 pounds of pull.   The most useful line for a spinning rig would be 4-6#, with 6# being very useful.   For baitcasting setups, try the 10-12# lines. 12# is on most of my rods with moving baits.   Give this stuff a shot. It may very well become your new favorite line.
