Grilled Gochujang Venison

Grilled Gochujang Venison

This time of year, when the plants are at their greenest, the sun is at its brightest, and the air just feels good, we wish we never had to go inside — not even to cook. Thankfully, there’s always the grill.

Marinades are a griller’s best friend, and this one works well with both Silver Fern Farms Venison Medallions and Pasture-Raised Venison Steak. It’s got Korean gochujang sauce, which gives the venison some umami funk and heat — plus lots of warm, nutty, subtly sweet aromatics. We also use Asian pear in the marinade, which is a fantastic tenderizer and makes the already tender venison even more melt-in-your-mouth juicy.

A tip from the Silver Fern Farms kitchen: Many of the ingredients from the gochujang venison marinade are used in the dipping sauce, so make them at the same time for extra-easy prep.



  • 2 Tbsp gochujang sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp packed brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp mirin
  • 1 green onion, trimmed and minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ Tbsp peeled and grated Asian pear
  • 1 tsp peeled and grated ginger
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
