"I threw this together one afternoon, as we needed to use up the venison we had in our freezer. We don't like the 'gamey' taste of some meats, and this marinade did the trick! I find it best to have the meat marinate overnight so it really takes in the flavors."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is by far the best marinade I have found for venison so far. The Worcestershire is dominant but you can also taste all of the other ingredients too. I eat venison because my husband is a hunter but I've never cared for it much. Until this recipe that is. I took one bite just to taste it and ended up gobbling up the rest faster than I could take a picture. This will be my go to from now on. The only thing I might suggest is to go ahead and let it marinate overnight so that the ingredients have time to get acquainted. And, if you are sensitive to heat you might want to cut back on the red pepper flakes. Thanks for sharing Thorney!
This was excellent! My husband came in with venison steaks and never having fixed it before, I searched this site for a good and quick recipe. Most recipes I was interested in called for several hours to marinade which I didn't have time for, then I found this one. I had enough time to marinade it for a little over an hour and that worked fine for us. My husband and I loved the results! We will be doing this one again as there is more venison in the freezer! Thank you!
I have used this recipe to make venison fajitas many times - it is AWESOME.
Brother in law gave us three packages of venison steaks that he wasn't having much luck cooking due to the age of the deer providing a very gamey taste. I tried smoking the first two with a bottled marinade which was not very good. This recipe took the gamey flavour right out of the meat and really added unique flavours in every bite. Even my wife who doesn't usually enjoy venison had quite a bit.
Great marinade! I changed it a little--used equal amounts of Worcestershire and soy sauce and omitted the salt. (Soy sauce already has a lot of sodium.) Can't wait to make a sandwich with the leftovers!
This was excellent! Can't wait till my son gets another deer. Made into fajitas!!
I had never cooked venison before and was afraid of the game taste, but this was great. My children couldn't stop eating it and thought it was regular steak.
First time making venison steaks and this was fantastic! I followed exactly. I did defrost the steaks overnight in fridge in milk. Then, marinated steaks for 10 hours, flipping bag in fridge every so often. It's a keeper!!!
