"This is a recipe I put together yearly. I make loads of these at a time and freeze them. I have scaled the recipe down to 6 servings. You can grill these or pan fry them as is. I usually give these a quick sear on both sides over high heat then reduce the heat to medium-low, deglaze the pan with a bit of white wine and simmer them in a marinara sauce until cooked through. The cooking method is entirely up to every individual."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place the first 6 ingredients in a large re-sealable plastic bag and swish the mixture together to mix.

Step 2

Cut all the membrane and fat off the venison steaks.

Step 3

Add the venison steaks to marinade mixture and marinate overnight.

Step 4

Pound the meat pieces down to 1/4 inch thickness.

Step 5

Form the pieces of meat into a 10 inch square over a sheet of plastic wrap overlapping each piece about 1/4 inch over the other so the sausage stuffing does not come through.

Step 6

Place the sausage filling over the venison meat patting it down 1/4 inch away from each rolling end.

Step 7

With the help of the plastic wrap, roll the meat tightly into a pinwheel. Refrigerate for 1/2 an hour.

Step 8

Unwrap the meat and cut at 1 1/2 inch intervals, you should have about 6 pieces; wrap with a piece of bacon, if using.

Step 9

Tie with butchers twine, or place a toothpick through so this does not fall apart when cooking.

Step 10

These freeze well but do freeze these in a single layer until ready to use.

Step 11

Thaw completely before cooking.


No special items needed.

Mine turned out better than it looks. My husband tenderized the venison for me. I wonder if I should have gotten it thinner. I marinated the steaks in the fridge for two days. I used cumin in place of the fennel upon doing a search online for a substitute. Thanks for posting.
