Venison Steaks – Rich in Flavour – Just Stunning

What does Venison taste like

Some folks appreciate gaminess in their meat, but many who are used to farm-raised meat find it off-putting. You can easily disguise that gamey taste with seasons and marinades, but fortunately, you don’t even have to do that. The venison for sale here at Steaks and Game comes from farm-raised deer, and therefore has zero gamey taste!

What is the Best Cut of Venison

The most reliably tender cut is trimmed loin not matter what age the deer is. In young deer, haunch steaks a wonderfully tender, where older deer, they can become dry very quickly when cooked. You can even cook shoulder steaks from young deer if left pink.

How long do you Cook Venison Steak for

Heat a little oil in a non-stick pan over a medium-high heat on the hob. Place the steaks into the pan. Pan fry the steaks for 5-6 minutes each side for medium rare, 7-8 minutes each side for medium, depending on how you like your venison cooked. Rest the venison steaks for 2 minutes in a warm place before serving.

How to Cook a Juicy Venison Steak

IT’S EASY TO COOK A VENISON STEAK SO THAT IT’S JUICY, YOU JUST NEED TO FOLLOW A FEW RULES. A GOOD MARINADE, A HOT GRILL OR PAN AND NOT OVERCOOKING IS KEY.

VENISON ISN’T LIKE BEEF. YOU CAN’T OVERCOOK AND UNDER-SEASON IT AND EXPECT IT TO STILL BE OK. THAT REALLY ALTERS THE FLAVOR, AS WELL AS THE TEXTURE.

Cooking really good venison steaks isn’t really hard, you just need to keep a few things in mind:

  • marinate the meat
  • don’t overcook it
  • rest before serving

Those 3 steps seem really simple, but they make a world of difference.

MARINATE YOUR VENISON STEAK

It’s important to choose an acidic marinade with plenty of bright flavors from vinegar or citrus. My all Purpose Marinade has plenty of red wine vinegar, lemon, and salt.

These 3 ingredients not only work with the “gamey” flavor and tone it down, but they also tenderize the meat and help break down some of the tissue so that it’s buttery soft after you cook it.

With venison steaks, I marinate for at least 3 hours, but up to overnight. I know that seems long, but it works great for me!

DON’T OVERCOOK IT

Venison steaks should be cooked to medium-rare or even rare plus if you like a rare steak. I pull my steaks from the grill or pan as soon as they reach 125-130F – I prefer 125F. They still cook a bit after you remove them and I always use a digital read thermometer to make sure I’m really precise.

REST BEFORE SERVING

Also…don’t cut into your meat right after it comes off the heat. As much as it does look amazing, allow it to rest so the juices have a chance to creep back into the meat for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Get together your side dishes, set the table, etc. Just give that meat time to rest!

It’s easy to cook a venison steak so that it’s juicy, you just need to follow a few rules. A good marinade, a hot grill or pan and not overcooking is key.
