Wild Game Sauce

Grilled Bacon-Wrapped
Venison Back straps with Blue Cheese

Serves 4

Distinctively venison with glamorous punch of blue cheese and bacon.


Cut venison backstrap into 1"-1.5" thick filet steaks.

Mash diced or pressed garlic into a bowl with 1/2 stick of salted butter and melt in microwave oven (30 – 45 seconds on high).
Brush garlic butter over backstrap filets and encircle each filet with a bacon slice, secured with a toothpick or butcher’s string.

Over a hot grill, slowly broil each filet on edge until the bacon begins to crisp. Then grill for 4 minutes a side until rare/medium rare. Place a slice of blue cheese on each filet and cover grill for 30 – 45 seconds until cheese begins to melt.

Serve with a heavy drizzle of hot
Chatellier’s Rare Wild Game Sauce.

Smokey Lettuce Wraps with
Sage Corn Salsa

Serves 4



Remove all silver-skin and fat from venison roast. Cut roast(s) accordingly so that they're 3/4 - 1 inch thick. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides.

In a small bowl, combine marinade ingredients. Mix well.

Place venison roasts in a zip-lock bag. Pour in marinade and marinate for 4 hours. Flip bag over after 2.

Brush olive oil over corn. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Score an "X" into one side of the tomatoes. Brush olive oil over tomatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Grill corn until lightly golden all over. Grill tomatoes until slightly softened, covered, about 15 minutes. Allow tomatoes and corn to cool.

Remove venison roasts from marinade. Discard marinade. Grill until medium done-ness, about 5 minutes on each side. Baste each side with Chatellier’s Rare Game Sauce.

To make the salsa, slice kernels off of corn. Chop flesh of tomatoes.

In a medium size bowl combine corn, chopped tomatoes, red onion, red wine vinegar, olive oil, chopped sage and Serrano chili pepper. Add salt and pepper too.

With a serrated knife, slice venison thinly against the grain.
