This simple marinade is great with any antlered venison, although it's hard to beat the delicate flavor and texture of caribou

Serves: 4
Prep time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes


  • 2 ½ cups caribou (or other game) sirloin, trimmed and cut into 2-inch cubes
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • ⅓ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper


1. Combine all ingredients aside from caribou into a tight-fitting jar and shake vigorously. Can be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks.

2. Place caribou in a non-reactive container or zip-lock bag. Add marinade, toss and refrigerate for 1-6 hours.

3. Remove from marinade, drain and place on a medium-high, well-oiled grill and brown on all sides, but preferably not past medium-rare (130-135 degrees internal temperature).
