Tenderloins are great without marinades, too, it's up to personal preference. Just refrain from throwing them in a bag with a bottle of italian dressing overnight. Sometimes I slice them into 1/4" thick medallions, batter 'em and deep fry 'em. You can't go wrong with tenderloins- unless you cook them too long. Just remember that, because they contain no fat, you don't have too cook it long at all, the meat will continue to de-protein while you're eating it. I've grilled them for as little as 30 seconds on each side (on a very hot grill). "Fillet" of Venison is also very good, just panfry the whole tenderloin in butter and garlic.

Marinade them in A1 sauce, then cook them on the George Forman grill.

I usually use the loins(back straps) for jerky and the tenderloins I use add to stew.

Hey Droptine,
The tendeloin is the most tender piece of meat on the deer. Why would you use it in stew? You can stew just about cut of meat and have it come out like butter. Why "waste" the tenderloin with that?
Just askin'

Just what I do.

I'm not very experienced with preparing venison. I'm pretty handy in the kitchen, but many people I give cooke dmeat to love Jerky. I've made jerky out of an entire deer, more than once, because I had a lot of requestes for it.

My brother and our friends love the stew I make, so as I keep making it, I just use whatever meat I hav ein the freezer, regarless of the cut.

Really I just havnt gotten around to trying and experimenting with various ways to prepare venison.

Today, I cut a backstrap into 3 egual parts and they are currently marinating in 3 different marinades I made. We'll see how it turns out


I hear ya' It's all about what you like and are used to.
Give it a try though. Take all the fat off the tenderloin. Grill it up as is, but DO NOT OVERCOOK IT or it will dry out quick. Best if medium to medium rare. It will be very tender. Once you have tried it "as is" then add marinate if you want next time.
Just be careful not to overcook it

Unfortunately Drop, I don't use a thermometer. I'm pretty good at cooking them up and taking them off when they arestill pink inside all the way through.
