Venison Steaks with Lime and Coriander Butter

    25 minutes

    If you don't like venison this works just as well on T-bone steaks. The lime and coriander butter is very visually effective.

    Absolutely melt in your mouth delicious! I added a little garlic powder to the cilantro butter and it was perfect!  -  08 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Made this tonight with venison round steaks. Yummy, but spicy! Honestly, this recipe is one of the best I've tried for that particular cut of meat. It covered the gamey taste, for sure. I couldn't find ancho chile powder at the store, so used chipotle powder instead, in the same proportions. I do believe that was too much heat. I will definitely make this again, using much less chile powder.  -  12 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Hands down, this made the best venison dish I have ever had. The lime-cilantro butter was amazing and the chili rub gave it just the right amount of heat. I added a little fresh chopped garlic to the butter just because I love garlic. YUM!  -  22 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
