Take this venison marinade challenge

Recommended Posts

Everyone who's tried this recipe from Southern Living, 2005, agrees that it is the best venison marinade ever for steaks and backstrap. Batting 1.000, with at least a dozen friends agreeing. In fact, three of us are separately making it for dinner tonight, to celebrate the Bills win. What's your take?

1/2 cup olive oil

3 Tablespoons of soy sauce

2 or 3 Tablespoons of fresh lime juice (from a bottle is okay, too)

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 to 1 tsp red pepper flakes

Marinade at least three hours, then salt liberally and pan sear to char the outside, and finish using an air fryer (!!) at 400F for 6-8 minutes, cooking no more than medium rare. Slice thin. We like it over a fresh salad of choice. IMHO, it is much better with venison than with steak; the ginger and lime make it great.

I’ll try it for sure but will be grilling.

I swear, you guys will be amazed at what a cast iron pan / air fryer combo can do. I'm hardcore grilling, smoking, real wood, etc...but my mom turned me onto an air fryer for tenderloins, and she wasn't wrong. It's not for every time - who doesn't want a little change now and then - but man, it is tough to beat. Here's after pics of tonight's meat entree:

I'll agree, it looks fantastic. We had a air fryer a couple yrs ago. We tried several times to make something edible with that thing.  Gave it away.
