Venison when it is in season is so succulent and flavourful it doesn't need much in the way of a complicated preparations. Salt and pepper will do it!
We like venison steaks as well as beef and they have less fat. I'm glad to see that not everyone thinks venison must be soaked or marinated. The only thing I do differently is add more spices, such as garlic and red capsicum. You do not need the marinades IF your venison has not been in the freezer a long time. The sooner it's prepared, the tastier it is. One note...be careful not to overcook venison. Depending on the size of your steak, you will not need to cook it this long. Ours were smaller and didn't require the full 10 minutes on each side to be cooked to medium well-well done (no blood). Overcooking venison completely changes the taste and, in fact, gives it a powdery consistency. - 29 Sep 2008
I don't really consider this a recipe because its just frying up some meat with basic S&P and butter - BUT it is good! However, to keep the meat tender, you need to add a couple TBLS of water. I have also used ale in place of water. Very good and easy...for breakfast, lunch or dinner. - 29 Sep 2008
Very tasty, without hiding the venison taste to it. - 29 Sep 2008
