Simple Steps to Grilling the Perfect Venison Tenderloin
Grilled venison is a delicious alternative to steak. It also contains about one sixth the amount of saturated fat of beef. According to Outdoor Life, “Wild venison is the ultimate red meat. It’s healthier, tastes better and is safer than any meat you can buy in a store.”
Venison is incredibly easy to cook on the grill. Check out these step-by-step instructions from Hunter Angler Gardener Cook to get you started!
Choose a tenderloin
Coat venison in olive oil and salt to taste.
Grill over high heat
Grill over high heat with the grill lid open. Cooking venison with the grill lid closed risks overcooking.
Baste the tenderloin
Baste the tenderloin using your favorite sauce. This can be a store bought BBQ sauce or a homemade sauce.
Cook the venison tenderloin
Cook the venison tenderloin or five to eight minutes, or until there are distinct grill marks on one side. Flip and repeat on the other side.
