Grilled Venison Backstrap Pinwheels

Venison is a unique type of red meat that stands out from domestic proteins like beef, pork, or chicken due to its distinct characteristics. When it comes to texture, venison is leaner than most meats, with a fine-grained texture that’s firm yet tender. Its low-fat content means it doesn’t have the marbling you’d find in a steak, but don’t let that fool you…venison offers a succulent, melt-in-your-mouth experience that’s hard to replicate. Flavor-wise, venison is rich and robust, with a depth of taste that’s often described as rich, earthy, and slightly sweet. This gamey flavor, while stronger than that of domestic meats, is part of what makes venison so appealing. It’s a taste that speaks of wild, open spaces and a life lived freely, a flavor that transports you straight to nature with every bite. In terms of culinary appeal, venison is quite versatile. It pairs quite well with bold, fruity flavors like cranberry and apple, as well as earthy herbs like rosemary and thyme. This recipe takes venison to another level, and we think it’s one you and your guests will really enjoy!
