Simple, Hearty Grilled Venison Butter Steaks

We’ve had a couple warm, sunny days here to break up the cold and snow lately. There’s still plenty of winter left, but that little bit of sunlight is just enough to remind us that spring will be here soon. And there’s no better way to celebrate a break from winter than grilling out. Nothing fancy, just some venison on the grill, maybe a baked potato on the side, a cold beverage, and that’s enough to make a good night.

Richard Baldwin had the same thought when he submitted his favorite venison steak recipe. It’s simple — but it sounds awfully tasty. Give it a try.


  • Venison steaks
  • Butter, melted
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cut steaks to desired size and hammer with a meat tenderizing hammer. Dip meat in melted butter, then salt and pepper to taste. Grill over low heat to desired doneness.
