Marinated Elk Venison Recipe
Marinating your backstrap in olive oil and simple seasoning for 24-48 hours makes a big difference in your meat's flavor.

Yield: 3 elk venison loins
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5-10 minutes


  • Elk venison backstrap loin (can substitute deer)
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons High Mountain Steak Rub


1. Repeatedly pierce venison with a fork to improve tenderness.

2. Spread and massage High Mountain Seasoning Steak Rub into both sides of venison loin.

3. Place seasoned loins in resealable bag and drizzle extra-virgin olive oil on top to help the seasonings blend into the meat.

4. Allow loins to marinate 24-48 hours in refrigerator.

5. On a hot grill, sear each side of venison loin for about 2 minutes for medium rare or cook until preferred readiness is reached.

6. Take off grill and you're ready to serve!
