Venison refers to the meat of antlered animals such as deer, moose, elk and caribou. The ‘wild’ flavor of venison is directly related to what the animal eats and its' age. Corn fed deer will have a milder flavor than those that eat acorns or sage.

Spices or marinades may be used to cover up the ‘gamey’ flavor. Marinades also tenderize and enhance the flavor of venison. The marinade should include a high acid liquid like lemon or tomato juice, vinegar or wine to soften the muscle fibers. Marinades will add fat and calories to this lean cut of meat. Other options to tenderize venison are to pound it with a tenderizing tool, make several small cuts in the meat with a knife (called scoring), or grind it.

Soak the meat in salted water, milk, buttermilk or vinegar to remove blood from the flesh

Soak meat in marinades containing wine or vinegar with the heavier flavors of soy or garlic

Garlic salt, salt, and pepper to taste and equal parts of: Worcestershire sauce and two of your favorite steak sauces. This gives a blend of flavors and also is excellent for basting game roasts or thick steaks during cooking.

2 tbsp vinegar, 1  ½ tsp ground ginger, 1 clove garlic, minced, 2 tbsp brown sugar,  ½ cup soy sauce, 3/4 cup vegetable oil

Quick Venison Marinades

2 cups vinegar, 2 cups water,  ½ cup sugar

French dressing


Tomato sauce or undiluted tomato soup

Tomato juice

Fruit juice (such as lemon, pineapple, or a mixture of many juices)

1/4 cup vinegar, ½ cup cooking oil, ½ tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp garlic salt

2 cups water, 2 cups vinegar, 1-2 tbsp sugar, 4 bay leaves, 1 tsp salt, 12 whole cloves, 1 tsp allspice, 3 medium sized onions, sliced


Basic Venison Marinade

1 cup of red wine

1 cup of vinegar

½ cup of olive oil or vegetable oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 Tablespoon Oregano

1 Teaspoon Nutmeg

2 cups of water

3 Tablespoons sugar (optional)

4 Tablespoons Lea & Perrin Worchestshire Sauce

Marinade Tips

Reduce the sugar in sauce recipes. Venison's natural flavor is sweeter than other meat, therefore, sauces developed for beef may be too sweet.

Use mild vegetable acid to tenderize. Vinegar, tomato sauce, and some French dressing sauces are good for tenderizing. Cover the meat with the marinating sauces. Only marinade in the refrigerator for a maximum of 24 hours. After marinating longer than 24 hours, the meats tends to get mushy.

The following marinade recipe will take that gamey taste out of the venison. Sure to please even that finicky venison eater.

1 cup white vinegar

 ½ cup oil

2 tablespoons parsley

2 tablespoons oregano

 ½ teaspoon onion flakes

1 teaspoon salt

4.  Grill, Broil or Fry.

Elegant marinade for venison steak

2 cloves garlic, minced

¼ cup vinegar

¼ cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon sesame oil

½ cup water

Thoroughly blend all ingredients.   Cover venison steaks with marinade for at least 4 hours (overnight preferred) prior to cooking.  Turn steaks periodically, or add more marinade, to saturate.  Broil or grill steaks to your preference.  (Once again, apple-grilled steaks are terrific!)

I used this for deer chops the first time. The aroma, while grilling, was fantastic and the taste even better. I recently used the marinade to do a whole pork loin on a spit over an open fire.

1/4 cup sherry wine or red wine

1 teaspoon ginger

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

2.  Pour mixture over chops and let marinate overnight.
3.   Remove chops from marinate and add the molasses to the marinade.
4.  Cook the chops on the grill over a low fire basting the chops with the marinade molasses mixture.
5.  Be careful not to over cook.
