This all-purpose venison marinade is perfect for tenderizing and flavoring whatever cut of venison you’re working with and it uses simple ingredients.
Ah, the all-purpose marinade. I’ve been messing around with venison marinades for some time now. I think it’s important to have something you can whisk together in a pinch. I’ve tried crazier ingredients like hot sauces, maple syrup, mustard, and more, but I keep coming back to this bright, fresh, and simple version.
This is a great marinade to use on a tenderloin, backstrap, chops, steaks—really any cut—and especially those that are tougher in nature. The acid helps break down the tissue and tenderize.
