I threw this together one afternoon, as we needed to use up the venison we had in our freezer. We don't like the 'gamey' taste of some meats, and this marinade did the trick! I find it best to have the meat marinate overnight so it really takes in the flavors.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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 off 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).

This is by far the best marinade I have found for venison so far. The Worcestershire is dominant but you can also taste all of the other ingredients too. I eat venison because my husband is a hunter but I've never cared for it much. Until this recipe that is. I took one bite just to taste it and ended up gobbling up the rest faster than I could take a picture. This will be my go to from now on. The only thing I might suggest is to go ahead and let it marinate overnight so that the ingredients have time to get acquainted. And, if you are sensitive to heat you might want to cut back on the red pepper flakes. Thanks for sharing Thorney! Read More

Sorry but the soy and Worcestershire was WAY overwhelming. I was hoping for something enhance the flavor of the venison not hide it. Read More

This was excellent! My husband came in with venison steaks and never having fixed it before I searched this site for a good and quick recipe. Most recipes I was interested in called for several hours to marinade which I didn't have time for then I found this one. I had enough time to marinade it for a little over an hour and that worked fine for us. My husband and I loved the results! We will be doing this one again as there is more venison in the freezer! Thank you! Read More

This marinade made the best venison steaks! My husband is not particularly fond of venison, but he loved this! My grandson couldn't get enough of it! We will use this again for sure! I did add a little red wine to the mix. Read More

Great marinade! I changed it a little--used equal amounts of Worcestershire and soy sauce and omitted the salt. (Soy sauce already has a lot of sodium.) Can't wait to make a sandwich with the leftovers! Read More

Perfect.... but just to make it even more perfect i skillet fried it, meanwhile cooking a package of bacon about a little less than halfway and setting aside. As soon as venison was almost done but not yet cooked all the way(still moist and soft in the skillet), I took it off and wrapped the cut up pieces of venison in pieces of bacon accordingly and put a toothpick thru each one. Put it on a foil lined cookie sheet and baked it at 400 for about 10 mins or so (I have a convection) until browned and crispy on the edges and it was soooo good. The bacon seems to put the fat into what’s missing in the venison. Served with oven roasted asparagus and onions and my parmesan garlic red potatoes mashed my hubby adored ?????? Read More
