Emily's Marinated Venison Steaks

Background and History:

Marinated venison steaks are a culinary delight that combines the tender and flavorful meat of deer with a zesty and aromatic marinade. This dish has a long history, as venison has been a source of sustenance in many cultures for centuries, dating back to prehistoric times.


  • 4 venison steaks
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Serves: 4

Preparation Time: 10 minutes (plus marinating time)

  • In a bowl, combine the red wine, olive oil, minced garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, and black pepper to create the marinade.
  • Place the venison steaks in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results.

  • Remove the venison steaks from the marinade and let any excess liquid drip off.
