  • “Haven’t made this yet, but Penzey’s carries juniper berries.They are a very nice spice with venison”

  • “Great marinade. I used this recipe for venison burgers, omitting the olive oil, juniper berries and orange rind.”

  • “Since I didnt want to run all over town looking for juniper berries,I tried it with 1/3 cup of gin instead of the juniper berries and it was just ok. I think I can make a better marinade on my own but i will give it another shot if I find the berries.”

  • “Loved this marinade!I added a teaspoon of dark brown sugar, and have also used it to marinade beef steaks.I will be adding this recipe to my favourites!”

  • “Neighbors gave us some white tail deer venison and this is the first time I’ve ever made it.Followed this exactly except could NOT find Juniper berries anywhere – at the suggestion of fellow Zaar members used GYN instead and it came out great.I think next time I’ll use Chef Rural’s suggesiton and cook it in a crock pot – but DH and I both loved it.Thanks DiB’s for posting.”

  • “I’ve had some Red deer chops in the frezzer for the last couple of weeks and used the recipie without the juniper berries, a little short for time I put them and the marinade in the slow cooker to do it’s thing when I came home i turned the cooker on and amamazed at the flavour will be doing this again”

  • “Not normally a wild game fan. Found this when my husband bagged an elk. I left out the sherry and juniper berries (didn’t want to run to the store!) and it was still divine. It also smelled heavenly while grilling. This is a keeper. Thanks a million”

  • “I like venison so I’m not trying to “kill” the taste.This is a great marinade for those that don’t really like venison and especially for those of us that do.”

  • “Outstanding marinade. Used it on a small (approx 1 1/2 Lb) venison roast, therefore cut ingredients in half and marinated for just over a day. My friends asked for the recipe.”

  • “The BEST marinade for game, and I have been searching for a long time.It doesn’t overpower the meat, but does modify the gamey flavor.We had two venison tenderloins;one we cooked after 2 hrs. of marinating and the other about 24 hours later. The latter was as good if not better than the first.For cooking, we precooked bacon strips till almost crisp, wrapped them around 1 1/2″ slices of venison and briefly fried them in a very hot pan.Luscious!”
