How Long to Cook Venison Steak
The best method for cooking a venison steak is to pan-sear it for a controlled cook that leaves some pink in the center. This will take 1 minute per half an inch of steak for a rare cook and 1.5 minutes per inch for medium rare. Grilling and oven baking might overcook the steak, so pan searing is the easiest method to use. It's recommended to cook venison to rare or medium rare doneness. Venison gets really tough and has a gamier taste when it's overcooked, so make sure to be exacting with the cook time to get the most delicious results.
