Our Venison Steaks are the perfect choice for any occasion with a naturally lean profile and delicate taste, they’re sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Raised in New Zealand on lush, green pastures year-round, our herds eat and live as naturally as possible, with minimal intervention. This reduces stress on the animal, promoting better animal welfare, and combined with their grass-fed diet, results in high-quality, nutrient-rich meat with a fine, distinctly delicate texture.
Compared to grain-fed red meats, our Silver Fern Farms Venison Medallions are naturally lean, with less saturated fat and fewer calories, making them a great choice for health-conscious consumers who want a protein option that is both nutritious and full of flavor. Additionally, they are higher in beneficial nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins A and E, and conjugated linoleic acids, while also having a healthier omega-3 to omega-6 ratio, further enhancing their nutritional value.
Because the cut comes from the lion of the deer and is boneless, our Venison Steaks have a low fat content making them easy and quick to cook. Whether you're pan-frying or BBQing, once you’ve rubbed them in oil and seasoned, cook them on a medium-high pan or BBQ for 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare. After resting for 5 minutes, these venison steaks are perfect to pair with a salad, incorporate into sandwiches or tacos or try our delicious Venison Steaks With Chimichurri & Crispy Potatoes,which can be found here.
In addition to the great taste and nutritional benefits, our Venison Steaks are a sustainable choice. Our herds are pasture-raised and grass-fed, and we never add hormones or antibiotics to our animals. Grass based farming systems are also more environmentally sustainable for a number of reasons including that the natural grass-fed approach allows our farmers to match animals and farm systems to the capacity of the land and environment, thereby helping to reduce any resulting pollution.
Plus, our vacuum-packed packaging allows for refrigeration for up to 30 days, retaining freshness and reducing waste. Vacuum-packed meat can sometimes have a slight odor or discolouration when first opened due to the lack of oxygen in the packaging. This is because vacuum sealing removes the air from the packaging to keep it fresher for longer, which can cause a reaction that can result in a slightly off smell or discolouration of the meat. Simply opening the packaging and allowing the meat to come into contact with air for a few minutes should eliminate any odor or discolouration, allowing you to enjoy your fresh and delicious meat as intended.
So the next time you're looking for a delicious and nutritious protein option, consider our Venison Steaks. With a delicate taste and lean profile, they're sure to satisfy any palate and dietary need.
