Emily's Marinated Venison Steaks

Rated as 4.89 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  • Ready In

  1. 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.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove venison from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade.
  4. 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).

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

Brother in law gave us three packages of venison steaks that he wasn't having much luck cooking due to the age of the deer providing a very gamey taste. I tried smoking the first two with a bot...

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 l...
