Venison Marinades and Sauces
Overview: Venison Marinade and Sauce
There is no better way to cook a delectable, rewarding piece of deer meat then by cooking it with a tasty venison marinade or sauce. The process of marinating is soaking meat in a seasoned liquid before one begins the cooking process. By soaking the meat in these special sauces for several hours, the venison is able to become naturally tendered and will taste less gamey.
Generally made of a mix of herbs, spices and oils, marinades can be picked up at any local store or specialty shop. These special types of sauces allow the venison to soak in flavor which allows for the ultimate taste for those who eat it. Since this type of meat is very lean and does not contain much fat, it is important to not over cook the meat.
