Grill Venison Steaks with This Can't-Miss Recipe


Your venison steaks don't need to explode with flavor.

We always want to make the most of our wild game meat, because a good meal from personally hunted animals is one of the best things being a sportsman can offer.venison-mrec

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


  1. Mix the ingredients well in a bowl, then transfer to one (or several) large ziplock bags.
  2. Add the steaks to the bag, seal, and mix well.
  3. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour, and up to five hours.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Remove from the grill and cover with foil, letting it rest for about five minutes.
