Venison Steaks (2x 170g) Price: £6.34

Venison has a wonderful woody, almost fruity flavor that is truly fantastic and is not only low in fat and cholesterol, but high in nutrients like B vitamins, iron, and phosphorus.  There is no comparison to Beef in flavor, though the texture is similar.

Venison has such a wonderful flavor that it doesn't take much to make it great on the grill. While you can marinate and season venison, it doesn't need much in the way of extra flavor. Since venison is so low in fat, marinate it in an oil based marinade to give it extra moisture.
