1 TBS homemade brown sugar, packed
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder

1 jalapeno (to taste), seeded and finely chopped
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
4 venison chops

Mix marinade ingredients together in a large resealable bag. Add venison and let sit in the marinade for at least 4 hours, overnight is best.

Here’s another deer meat marinade along the same lines as the one above:


2 cups homemade soy sauce
1 cup homemade brown sugar, packed
1 TBS homemade Worcestershire sauce
1 TBS homemade garlic powder
1 TBS homemade onion powder
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 tsp black pepper

Mix all ingredients well and place in a resealable plastic bag. Add meat and marinate for a minimum of 4 hours; overnight is best.


1/2 cup homemade vinegar
1/4 cup homemade ketchup
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup homemade worcestershire sauce
1 TBS homemade garlic powder
1 TBS homemade onion powder
1-1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Whisk ingredients well and pour into a large resealable bag. Add deer meat and marinate overnight.

Drain well. Broil venison 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 4 minutes. Turn; baste with reserved marinade. Broil 4 minutes longer, basting often, or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees for medium or 170 degrees for well-done.


1/2 cup Madeira wine
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
2 TBS freshly ground black pepper
1 TBS homemade garlic powder
1 TBS homemade onion powder
2 bay leaves

2 venison tenderloins
6 oz prosciutto

Whisk together the first 7 (marinade) ingredients. Place in a large resealable bag. Add the meat and marinate overnight – A Must.

PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees.

Remove meat from the marinade and pat dry. Wrap with prosciutto and place in a baking dish. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a thermometer reaches 150 degrees for medium-rare. Cook longer to achieve a well-done tenderloin.
