Venison Marinade

Recommended Posts

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.

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
