Enjoy these Grilled Tequila Lime Venison Tacos all summer long with their refreshing yet spicy flavors. And with warmer weather FINALLY arriving, they are perfect for the grill... and a margarita!
Grilled Tequila Lime Venison Tacos
1/2 cup of clear tequila
1/4 cup of soy sauce
3/4 cup of lime juice
4 Tbsp. chopped garlic
3 Serrano Chilies (jalapeno for less heat) sliced into long strips
1 tsp cumin powder
1 Tbsp. cracked black pepper
1/4 to 1/3 cup Sriracha hot chili sauce
1-2 lbs. Venison Loin
Raw white onion
Combine the first 9 ingredients in a gallon Zip-Lock bag mixing thoroughly. I usually tenderized the loin with a meat punch (not mallet style) but you don’t have to because the acid from the lime juice will also tenderize. Marinate the loin for 4 hours or overnight if desired.
Remove loin from the marinade and grill to desired doneness. I prefer somewhere between medium and medium well. Strain the remaining marinade into a medium saucepan and bring mixture to a boil.
When meat is done grilling let sit for 5 minutes and slice on the bias (at an angle). I usually put the meat in a serving bowl and pour a little of the marinade over it to keep it moist. Serve with warmed corn or flour tortillas and top with garnishes.
