"We enjoy venison and eat it almost exclusively instead of beef. This is a recipe from Marisa Franca and is one that we enjoy. The cook time (8 minutes) does not include the marinating time of 5 hours."

Step 1

Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a measuring cup.

Step 2

Place venison in a large zip lock bag.

Step 3

Pour marinade over steak and seal the bag.

Step 4

Place bag in a flat casserole dish so that the steak lies flat.

Step 5

Refrigerate and marinate at least 5 hours, turning every half hour to marinate each side.

Step 6

Drain the marinade at let the steak come to room temperature at least 1 hour.

Step 7

Spray grill grate with spray oil and heat the grill to 500 F.

Step 8

Pat the steak dry with paper towels and then rub both sides of steak with olive oil.

Step 9

Lay the steak on the grill. Do not disturb for 2 minutes. With tongs pick up the steak and move it 90 degrees on the grill — this will give you the cross-hatch grill marks. Grill another 2 minutes on the same side.

Step 10

Flip the steak and grill until medium rare, using the same method as the first side. Do the Finger test for doneness about 4 minutes.

Step 11

Move the steak to a platter and let it rest for at least 5 minutes.

Step 12

Slice the meat, serve and enjoy!
