Question Cooking Venison?

Our neighbor gave us some venison steaks the other day. I used a dry rub from the local meat market and now they're ready to be cooked. Problem is, the grill is put away for winter, and my wife doesn't want to cook them because she has bad luck with venison tasting 'gamey'.

Any of you kitchen experts have a good idea of what to do with these? Broil? Bake? Pan fry?

Thanks.

Why the heck is your grill put away?!? Unless it is below 0, I'm still grillin'!
(Sorry, no advice on the steak, it's been too long since I've eaten venison.

just get a saute pan out and get it really HOT. Put a bit of vegetable oil in the pan then put your steak in. Once you put the steak in, immediately shake the saute pan and try and get the steak to lossen from the pan. After a few minutes flip and repeat. Cook it quickly as you don't want it over cooked.. rare to medium rare only...

You can clear off your truck, you can clear off your grill. I'm just sayin'.

Agreed. I lived in Lindsay, Ontario for 4 years and it's in the north and it's cold and lots of snow. Never did our grill not get used. Hand in your man card now. At least your northerner card.

No one south of the Mason-Dixon is allowed to say this. You handed in your Northerner card when you crossed it going the wrong way.

Lets not talk of the War of Northern Aggression. The South will rise again.

At least I still have my man card.

Agreed.

I sort of like grilling, but I don't get the whole man=grilling thing. It's still cooking, just outside. Isn't cooking woman's work? Just saying. And HF, we ALL handed in our man card the day we chose to stay home, change diapers, and clean house.

Of course, all this stereotyping and man card stuff is just bullshit. I just had to respond.

Now, any tips on cooking venison from you manly northern types?
