Let’s Taste This Dish!
- Begin with the star of the show, your venison backstrap. Rinse it under cold water and pat dry.
- Now, let that beautiful cut of venison marinate in a mixture of fresh thyme, minced garlic, crushed juniper berries and a drizzle of olive oil. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- When you’re ready to sizzle, pull out the venison from the fridge and let it return to room temperature.
- Heat up your cast-iron skillet on the stove, making sure it’s super hot for that perfect sear.
- As the pan heats up, season your venison backstrap liberally with sea salt and cracked black pepper.
- Gently lay the venison in the hot pan, and listen to that beautiful sizzle. Cook it untampered for about 3 minutes until seared and browned.
- Flip that backstrap over gracefully and sear the other side for an additional 3 minutes for a medium rare finish. If you prefer it well done, give it a few more minutes.
- Remove the venison from the pan and let it rest on a chopping board for 10 minutes. Remember, good things come to those who wait!
- Finally, slice it against the grain, serve it with your favourite side dish, and savor the applause as well as the tantalising flavours.
- Over and out, you’re done! Enjoy a well-cooked meal that didn’t stress you out!
