How to Make Venison Backstrap

This specific recipe I cooked in the sous vide and I think that is where the magic really happened!

So if you don’t have a sous vide you can still cook your meat on the BBQ, but I highly recommend getting a sous vide because it makes the meat tender and delicious!

Ingredients for Step 1

  • Venison backstrap (we used a 1/3 of the backstrap, about 10-12 inches long)
  • Garlic salt
  • Montreal steak seasoning
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)

Directions for Step 1

  1. Melt your butter and set aside.
  2. Season both sides of the venison with garlic salt, Montreal seasoning, and pepper.
  3. Put the seasoned meat and melted butter in a vacuum seal bag and vacuum seal shut. Then put it in the fridge overnight to marinate.

Ingredients for Step 2

  • 4 TBSP. butter (for searing meat)
  • 1/4 cup of butter (for garlic sauce)
  • 1 TBSP. fresh garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic salt

Directions for Step 2

  1. The next day after your meat has marinated, remove it from the fridge and set it on the counter while you prepare the sous vide.
  2. Fill a large pot with hot water and set your sous vide at 130 degrees F.
  3. Drop your vacuum-sealed venison in the pot of water and cook for 2 1/2 hours after the water temperature has reached 130 degrees.
  4. After your meat is done cooking in the sous vide, heat a cast iron pan on medium-high heat and melt 4 tablespoons of butter.
  5. Once the pan is hot and sizzling, remove the meat from the vacuum seal bag and sear it for 2 minutes on each side, or until the desired look.
  6. After searing, remove the meat from the cast iron pan and let it rest for 5-10 minutes.
  7. While the meat is resting, melt 1/4 cup of butter and mix in 1 tablespoon of fresh garlic and a 1/4 teaspoon of garlic salt.
  8. Then slice the meat thin, place it on a serving dish, drizzle with the garlic butter sauce and enjoy!
