Planked Venison Steak

Planked Venison Steak gets a smoky flavor by cooking on the grill. We’ve enjoyed this with bison, bear, and pronghorn meat, among others.

Because the meat is protected by a plank and layer of vegetables, as well as another layer of vegetables on top, it retains its moisture very well. Try swapping out the peppers for root vegetables in the fall.

Both the meat and vegetables in this recipe readily acquire smoke flavors, making for a delicious meal. Try serving this alongside fresh baked bread or biscuits.
