Your venison steaks don’t need to explode with flavor.
But honestly, simplicity can go a long way when working up the flavors that will enhance the taste of the dish. Adding meat to fire, i.e. grilling, is a great way to bring the natural flavor out, while adding a little smokiness to round things out. But you don’t have to pile on the expensive and hard-to-find seasonings.
If you’re looking for an experimental recipe that will present you with something you’ve never tasted before, this might not be it. But if you’re looking for a delicious venison steak recipe that’s easy and includes ingredients you’ve likely got on hand, this one’s for you.
Simple Grilled Venison Steaks
- Venison steak (defrosted and trimmed)
For every two pounds of venison steak:
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup oil
- 3 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp ground ginger
- 2 tbsp ground mustard
- 2 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp ground pepper
- Mix the ingredients well in a bowl, then transfer to one (or several) large ziplock bags.
- Add the steaks to the bag, seal, and mix well.
- Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour, and up to five hours.
- Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, to where it’s too hot to hold your hand a few inches from the grill grate for more than a second or two.
- Add the steaks and cook for three to four minutes per side. Venison is best when cooked to medium rare, but heat it to your desired temperature.
- Remove from the grill and cover with foil, letting it rest for about five minutes.
